Collaboration between Volcano Theatre and the Jackman Humanities Institute
inFORMING CONTENT May 3 - 5, 2013
Presented by Volcano Theatre and The Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto,
inFORMING CONTENT aims to expose young theatre-makers to forms of creation that are outside the scope of most traditional training in Canada. We strive to challenge artists to collaborate with academic experts in performance creation. By doing so, we institute a dialogue that will allow these new forms to mirror, prod at, and in some cases explode content.
Friday 3 May: Public Research Presentations
The evening will feature an introduction by Volcano Theatre's Production Director, Deborah Pearson, who will outline how these six brief presentations will inspire new and original dramatic productions over the course of the next two days. Each scholar will then present a short, accessible snapshot of their research passions. Most presentations will focus on the JHI 2012-2013 Annual Theme, Food.
During the course of the weekend, teams of actors will work with the spaces of the Jackman Humanities Building at 170 St. George Street to develop new theatre from the ideas presented. The presentations and performances are free and open to the public.
