The Living Room is a mixer-slash-mingler-slash-meeting for emerging artists to hear from established artists on topics that are important to our theatre community. Each event is centred around a specific theme. Rumble invites all artists who self-identify as “emerging” to join us for these fun and stimulating evenings of conversation and community-building. It’s a great opportunity to connect, network, and share news in a casual and fun environment.
All Living Room events start at 7pm and are held in the PL1422 studio (1422 William Street, Vancouver). The Living Room is free-of-charge and no advance sign-up is required.
The 2017-2018 Living Rooms
November 27, 2017 – Script-based rehearsal vs. the devising process
How are these two creative processes different? What do they have in common? And what skill sets do they require to pull off?
Camyar Chai and Mindy Parfitt will join us to debate all the pros and cons. Veronique West will be this session’s moderator.
And here’s what’s on tap for the rest of the season:
February 26, 2018 – Working for free…and making a living
What factors help you choose a project to be involved in? When should you stop working for free? How do you value yourself, your time, and your art?
Sarah Rodgers and Raugi Yu are our guests for this important conversation, with Jamie King as moderator.
April 16, 2018 – Artistic Direction like a boss!
What decisions go into programming a season? How are art, finance, talent, and audience expectation all balanced?
Ashlie Corcoran (Arts Club Theatre) and Jovanni Sy (Gateway Theatre) give us the inside scoop on the scope of their work as Artistic Directors. Adele Noronha will moderate.
