CALL FOR ARTISTS: Off the Wall 2015

off the wall 2014 i

Today I bring exciting news. My friends and collaborators over at Frog in Hand (if you don’t know this company, check them out. They are a multi-disciplinary group co-directed by sisters Colleen Snell and Noelle Hamlyn doing amazing things out in Mississauga and beyond) have announced a call for artists to participate in the 2015 instalment of OFF THE WALL. This was, personally, one of my performance highlights from last year.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

Off the Wall is an exciting, multi-disciplinary project with Frog In Hand and the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.

If you’ve ever wanted to work alongside musicians, actors, dancers, visual artists, writers and performance artists

[insert “Off the Wall” pun here]

Tomorrow I’ll be heading to the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga to meet a handful of exciting artists (pictured below). Together, we’ll push our brains, our bodies and the architecture around us to create something beautifully ephemeral on Canada Day. I’m curious to see what will happen as many of the details, including the artists’ bios, have been kept secret, but I do know, from working with Frog in Hand before, that whatever it is will be energetic and dynamic. Swing by on Canada Day to see what we’ve made!

changes.

Lots of things are happening here at a field of crowns.

Outside of the a field of crowns label, I’m currently rehearsing three shows with three amazing companies (Foo Productions, Frog in Hand and Shakespeare BASH’d). With a field of crowns, I’m also in the early creative stages of a new show, Add Friend, co-created with artist Andrew Cromwell. Add Friend will premiere as a Gallery play for the 2014 Hamilton Fringe Festival.

After this, I’m going to be bring a field of crowns to the next level. What does that mean? I’ll have more about that soon.

Until then, I hope to see you on stage!
