Now in its second year, Territorial Tales is a creative launching pad for young creators (14-24) to share their experience of displacement, home, and the recapturing of spirit when removed from the familiar.
We are seeking 3 young, non-union, multi-disciplinary performers who feel at home with the collective creation process. Selected performers must also feel confident in workshop facilitation.
The Tales will be showcased at our High Park Amphitheatre in August of this year at our inaugural youth days and family story-telling day, before going on tour throughout Northern and Central Ontario in the fall of this year. As part of this program, performers will also lead workshops designed to engage other youth in sharing their narratives.
- Must be a non-union performer between the ages of 16-24
- Must be available for rehearsals and performances throughout July-September 2018
- Must be able to lead small groups of their peers
- Must be collaborative and passionate about the creation process
How to Submit:
Send a cover letter stating your interest in the project and why it inspires you, headshot and resume to: Autumn Smith, Curator of Territorial Tales: firstname.lastname@example.org By: June 1 @ 5pm
