“to imagine, to compose, to suppose, to guess, to purpose, to mediate, to describe, to depict, to scheme, to contrive…” –Definition of devise, Chambers Dictionary

This rigorous hands-on 4-Day devising theatre workshop is designed to inspire the collaborative imagination. Over the course of the 4-day workshop, participants will be led through a series of devising theatre exercises based on the unique artistic practices of Ghost River Theatre (www.ghostrivertheatre.com).

Participants will come way from the workshop with new theatrical techniques and exercises that can be utilized both for the creation and development of new performance and the teaching and facilitation of the classroom. Open to artists of all disciplines.

Ghost River Theatre

Led by Artistic Director Eric Rose, GRT is a devised theatre company that creates, develops and mounts original productions through a significant investment in imaginative research and development. We make our work in a rigorous, supportive collaborative-creation environment that recognizes and utilizes the unique abilities of all participants, premiering our work in Calgary and then touring it nationally and internationally. Our work embraces a hybrid of high tech visual spectacle with low-fi theatrical magic. As Jessica Goldman of CBC Radio stated “…no one is better at mounting a totally unique and exquisitely creative piece of work than Ghost River Theatre.”

This intensive runs April 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th, 2018.
