Equity in Theatre launched in 2014 to respond to the enduring and urgent question of women’s disappearance from professional Canadian stages. In the February 2016 issue of Canadian Theatre Review, contributors seek to increase visibility around existent industry barriers while positing possible solutions to help affect positive change. Two of CCEDA’s founding members have published articles in this issue (Mieko Ouchi and Michele Decottignies) and Calgary’s own Urban Curvz has been profiled!
Please join us in celebrating the contributions of Calgary artists to this important issue of Canadian Theatre Review, on gender equity in Canadian theatre.
Our local launch party includes:
A panel moderated by Alyssa Bradac
Featuring: Michele Decottignies (Stage Left Productions)
Cheryl Foggo (Ellipsis Tree Collective & U of C)
Kate Newby (Urban Curvz)
Patti Pon (CADA)
Jenna Rodgers (Chromatic Theatre)
All of whom will be discussing women-centric and feminist contributions to theatre in Calgary made by diverse women artists.
This panel will be followed by a short performance created by UC Drama students Keshia Cheesman and Bianca Miranda.
Snacks and refreshments are available.
CCEDA thanks The School of Creative and Performing Arts for co-hosting this special event.
