The Likewise Madam Mirror (performed by Polly Phokeev) is a short, horror-tinged story about people’s relationship to their own thoughts.
what's up with us
A participatory video game performance, a live augmented reality escape room, immersive short films, a tiny concert inspired by a giant book… Experience the festival for free online or IRL at The Theatre Centre May 9-15, 2022. The future of live art is hybrid by design.
In the past few weeks, we’ve had a bunch of artists working in the space, and we’re taking you behind the scenes to learn more about their processes. This month, we sat down with Peggy Baker (dancer, choreographer and artistic director of Peggy Baker Dance Projects) to talk about her new project Beautiful Renegades and what excites her about the next generation of artists.
2021 was another year for the books. The doors remained closed to the public for much of the year, but there was a flurry of activity happening behind the scenes. It’s been a privilege to continue to work with and support the many artists who have made The Theatre Centre their home to create during this time.
Even though the building is still closed to the public, we’re fortunate to be able to allow artists to work in the space. This month in the Incubator, Victoria Mata has been working on solo choreography for Cacao: A Venezuelan Lament, and PJ Prudat and Jonathan Seinen are further developing À la façon du pays. Upstairs in the Franco Boni, Lorena Torres Loaiza is building a life-sized maze for Pandora in the Box.
