Welcomes Theatre Yes as a Company in Residence
The Citadel Theatre and Theatre Yes are pleased to announce that Theatre Yes will begin a creative residency at the Citadel during the 2017-18 Season, creating a site-specific, immersive work to be performed in the Citadel’s complex as a co-presentation in the 2018-19 Season.
Daryl Cloran, Artistic Director of the Citadel Theatre, says: “We are thrilled to invite one of Edmonton’s most industrious and innovative companies to be in residence with us, igniting the creative connections between our companies to create a one-of-kind theatre experience for Edmonton audiences. This residency is part of our commitment to build meaningful artistic partnerships with other performing arts companies in Edmonton. The partnership provides resources and support to smaller companies, and animates our building with the work of these innovative artists. It’s a win, win, win, situation for the resident company, the Citadel, and our audiences.”
Theatre Yes’s Artistic Director and Producer Heather Inglis says: “We’re delighted by the challenge and opportunity the Citadel has presented to us to build a new large-scale theatrical offering that uses the architecture of their iconic building to create an enveloping theatrical adventure.
ANXIETY in Pictures
Nov 24th – Dec 4th 2017 Theatre Yes presented ANXIETY pan-Canadian collaboration between seven small-scale, experimental theatre companies to create a found-space, immersive production, which explored the nature of our angst in the digital world. Theatre Yes approached six small-scale theatres, from across the country representing a variety of regions and artistic practices to participate. Each collaborating partner contributed a 10-minute, immersive performance-installation piece that examines anxiety, its mechanisms and how it shapes our lives. Thanks and ever thanks to our artistic collaborators Northern Light Theatre from (Edmonton), Theatre Skam (Victoria) and Outside the March (Toronto), LoHiFi Production (Halifax) and Curtain Razors (Regina) add Théâtre à corps perdus (Montreal). ANXIETY will be featured in an upcoming issue of Canadian Theatre Review – Canada’s foremost theatre magazine.
