@ the theatre
a queer playwriting workshop led by playwright Jordan Tannahill
Sunday, February 7, 2016
3 pm to 6 pm
The Post (750 Hamilton St in Vancouver) – The East Studio
You must RSVP beforehand by emailing email@example.com
@ the theatre is a workshop aimed at exploring collaborative possibilities between the Internet and live performance. Rather than seeing the increasingly omnipresent virtual world as a threat to liveness, how can the Internet be used to create new and queer performance experiences?
Open to people of all sexual and gender identities.
The Globe and Mail has called Jordan Tannahill “… the poster child of a new generation of (theatre? film? dance?) artists for whom ‘interdisciplinary’ is not a buzzword, but a way of life.” In collaboration with William Ellis, Jordan runs the alternative art space Videofag, out of a defunct barbershop in Toronto’s Kensington Market. His plays have been presented across Canada, and his films have been exhibited at venues such as the Toronto International Film Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the British Film Institute. Jordan is the recipient of the 2014 Governor General’s Award for Drama for his book Age of Minority: Three Solo Plays, the 2014 John Hirsch Prize for directing, and Dora Awards for his plays rihannaboi95 in 2013 and Concord Floral in 2015. His latest book Theatre of the Unimpressed: In Search of Vital Drama was published by Coach House Press in April 2015 and was called “…”essential reading for anybody interested in the state of contemporary theatre and performance.”
