Calgary Theatre in Flux

A Forum About Our Future

The date for this event has passed.

Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre Presents:
Calgary Theatre in Flux: a forum about our future
Sunday, September 9, 2018, 7:00 – 9:0 pm
Vertigo Theatre (161, 115 9th Ave. SE)

Supported by the Rozsa Foundation and Assembly (Chromatic Theatre, Lunchbox Theatre, Shakespeare Company, and Vertigo Theatre).

It’s been an intense—and, in some ways, disheartening—few months for Calgary’s theatre scene. Let’s take a breath, take a step back, and talk about it.

Calgary Theatre in Flux: a forum about our future is an attempt to zoom out and look at our current situation in context. The forum will include:

THE NUMBERS: Emiko Muraki (until recently the Director of Community Investment & Impact at Calgary Arts Development) will present data around demographics (of theatre leadership and audiences), funding and more.

CALGARY THEATRE IN CONTEXT: A panel of longtime, trailblazing members of Calgary’s theatre communities will paint a picture of the local scene as it developed from the 1960s onward. The panel will include Duval Lang, Sharon Pollock and other awesome soon-to-be-announced panelists!

LOOKING AHEAD: A panel of artists and arts workers who are blazing new trails today, and working to re-shape the theatre sector in the years and decades to come. The panel will include Stafford Arima, Justin Many Fingers and Jenna Rodgers.

CALLS TO ACTION: Some concrete requests and ideas that we can collectively move forward.

DISCUSSION & DIALOGUE: Stick around at the end to share your own ideas, meet new people and keep the dialogue going!

Also, attendees will receive copies of a special-edition zine (yes! a zine!) featuring thoughts about the future of Calgary’s theatre scene from exciting local artists, ages 25 and younger, including:

Maya Green
Samantha Ketsa & Emily Sunderland
Yousuf Liepert
Arash Minhas & Noah Baker
Jay Northcott
Mikenzie Page
Kodie Rollan
Matthew Oliver van Diepen
Sarah Uwadiae
