So what’s your story — workshop with Jacqui du Toit

Saturday, April 22 at 4pm

We all have a story to tell and usually we tend to write our stories down or share them with family and friends, but when we engage our body and the wisdom of our bodies to express them, there is another level of empowerment that occurs. We bring our stories to life! In this workshop, we will combine sacred theatre, creative writing, movement and voice. Exercises will be introduced to the participants that will have us loosen up, laugh, connect and remember how to play. So what’s your story is about… coming back to the circle… about… transformation.

Critics’ Salon

Thursday, May 4 at 9:30pm

The applause rings, and you find yourself wondering, What the heck was that? As humans, we ask ourselves this question often enough outside the theatre; it would be nice to come away from a play with some consensus and directions to explore. Luckily, the show doesn’t have to end once the curtain falls! Adopting the model of a traditional book club, the Critics’ Salon brings people together post-performance to talk about their individual experiences within the audience collective.

Join the New Ottawa Critics as they lead the discussion on theatre and production, while creating a safe space for spectators to express and discuss their experience of a performance we all witnessed together. A place to talk about art, to meet new people, and to stay engaged – if you’re constantly looking for somewhere to hang out and chat after a show, this event is for you!
