7 Days In Ontario Theatre

What’s Happening?
  • Attention Must Be Paid: Travis Bedard wrote a very thoughtful piece about the American theatre experience as an artist in Austin, Texas for whom “not a one of my megalomanical inclinations…lands on the Great White Way” and how to have a conversation with the public when only “Broadway” matters; I think this speaks to a lot of Ontario theatre artists who resist the notion that Toronto theatre is the only theatre that matters
  • Meet – a market for playwrights and theatres to connect
  • Picasso Pro will have its inaugural audio-described performance as part of the Sun Life Financial Performing Arts Access Program at the world premiere of Ken Gass’s ‘Bethune Imagined’ at Toronto’s Factory Theatre on November 30
  • At this week’s meeting of the Live Performance Advisory Committee in Health and Safety, the guidelines for performer flying and aerial stunts was the main topic of discussion; reading about what’s happening on the Broadway production of Spiderman made it seem like a particularly timely discussion
From The Bulletin Board
  • As mentioned last week, today is the deadline for Factory Theatre’s OAC Creators Reserve; Theatre Passe Muraille’s deadline is November 29; Great Canadian Theatre Company’s deadline is December 1
  • Nightwood Theatre is holding its Master Class: Projections in Theatre with Kim Collier and Jamie Nesbitt on November 28 for directors and theatre creators who have an interest in exploring the relationship between the projected image and live theatrical experience
  • The application deadline for Nightwood’s “Write From The Hip” for emerging female playwrights, 18-29, is December 3
