It’s become tradition. Every January I pack up and head to New York to have my brain stuffed full of new and better ideas for the year ahead. This year? No different. OK Maybe a little colder. I always come home feeling a sense of duty to share what I find with you so please check out my notes from ISPA here: https://theatrelocal.org/work/documentation/notes-from-international-society-for-the-performing-arts-2015/ I go to APAP too (they are doing more and more on the international front which is so great to see) and Globalfest. Under the Radar, Coil, Winterjazz, the list goes on and the world gets smaller and smaller. Enjoy!
Theatre Local attended the New York congress of the International Society for the Performing Arts this past January. I just posted my notes from the sessions here. Another inspirational year! -Rebecca

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has—Margaret Mead
Communities are increasingly important sources of social change. This group exhibition explores how artists of all disciplines can work with, or within them to creatively address issues important to all. From visual art to performance, this show reflects on the specific conditions which let them intersect and the possibilities that arise at such a juncture.

The award, named in honour of Mallory Gilbert – Tarragon Theatre’s General Manager for 34 years and former President of the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT) – celebrates and recognizes significant and valuable leadership within the Canadian Theatre community.

Dear Friends, Fans, and Followers,
Thank you for your continued support! After the great success of “Tell YOUR Story” and “Canada’s Smallest Theatre” in 2011, we took some time to prepare our next set of projects. Proposals were written, calls were made and artists and producers were curated and networked.
We had some tough challenges to overcome in the past months and it wasn’t certain we’d have good news come this time of year. After much consternation and budget trimming, the incredible group at VideoCabaret came on board as a developmental partner for our “50 Monologues” project, set for its first public showing this fall. This support helped give us the push we needed to say “yes to the dress” and don a white night yet again.
It gives up great pleasure to announce that with the help of many hands and hearts we are back for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2012 with another FREE public artwork, a social sculpture as unique as it’s setting, SMALL AUDIENCES.
