iMAGO TEAM UPDATES
Miche just returned from Calgary where she was in residency with Léda Davies and Jed Tomlinson at Cspace rehearsing Persephone Bound. She is presently working as the dramaturg on Alice or The World We Live In by Montreal playwright Alex Haber, which will open at the Centaur on October 18. Micheline is thrilled to be collaborating with Alex for the third time, and also happy to be spending time in the rehearsal hall with friends and colleagues: actors Danny Brochu and Jane Wheeler, as well as director Eda Holmes.
During the summer Cristina took an art centric trip to Europe in order to visit events such as the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, The Vienna Biennale for Change, The Venice Biennale Art Exhibition which was entitled ‘May You Live In Interesting Times’, and The Avignon Festival. Cristina’s company, Odd Stumble, is in a development year with three new works by Erin Lindsay, Joy Ross-Jones, and Alexandra Maynard.
Erin started school with her M.F.A in Creative Writing through UBC, she is performing in a collaboration that joins poetry and classical music at Saw Gallery in Ottawa this October, she is participating in Parcours Danse as a vocalist and creator this Fall and she is a proud Artist in Residence with Imago Theatre and Odd Stumble with an adaptation of Euripides’ Lysistrata. Erin also recently worked on an ACTRA short film with Joy and Andrew about the wellness industry.
Joy had a blast creating 'Well,' for the ACTRA Short Film Festival. She recently got back from Brock University where she performed Sermo Scomber's Don't Read the Comments. On October 10th she'll be heading to Toronto to presenting a segment of a new clown piece, created with her Toronto-based collaborator, Rae Maitland, for Concrete Cabaret. Joy is also excited to be developing a new play, FIX (working title) with Odd Stumble with support from PWM, and is looking forward to the ongoing tour of Elsewhere (Odd Stumble in association with Imago Theatre).
Marissa is currently producing the encore performance of the Montreal Fringe Fest 2019 hit Antonin Artaud’s SPURT OF BLOOD: Halloween Edition for one night only, October 31. She is an organizer and participant of Freefalling Monthly - an experimental performance festival occurring every last Friday of the month at Freestanding Room.
Katey just assisted Yvette Nolan on a production of Margret Atwood’s The Penelopiad at Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon. Katey will be joining Yvette again in the new year on the new creation Reasonable Doubt, a verbatim play about Colten Boushie’s tragic death.
