Lab Experience

 

They say relationships are mirrors. That we can find parts of ourselves by looking at others. Shed light on things we couldn't see before. Ultraviolet Love is a story about self-exploration, finding oneself in others, the reflexivity or relationships, and the light that guides the way. Bringing together a cast with unusual characters in an adventure that parallels a treatment clinic with an unexpected doorway into another world, Ultraviolet Love takes the absurd into a surprisingly contemplative direction where Violet learns about the hardest way to love - herself

Ultraviolet Love was performed at the Ottawa Fringe in 2018.

Lab Experience

 Our goal for this project was threefold: To write a female-driven story, to create an immersive piece of theatre that would involve multiple artistic disciplines including circus sideshow and burlesque and last (but not least) to tell an eerie and unsettling ghost story about a travelling circus that can delight you, enchant you, and devour your heart. During the lab,  we were able to find the right structure for the piece, develop the first act of our script and by getting the first scenes on their feet, we were given the freedom to explore the relationships between the characters and find the ‘heart’ of the story.

Young Buck$
Nick Fornier and Drew Moore 

 

Lab Experience

The young Buck$ were  set on exploring the young mans dilemma of taking unnecessary risks. Through guided play and exercises in vulnerability they  were able to distill most of the words away and truly embody the essence of their youthful vagrancy. Their Ultimate goal; to shed light on the normalization of addiction among youths. Moving forward they want to flesh out and learn the rules of the "consequence free" world this piece takes place in. They also yearn to define what each of their characters represents individually, hopefully they will each bring forth a simple lesson for the audience to walk away with.
