Event Notes

× Welcome to Hybrid By Design.

This is a festival that celebrates process and experimentation.

We invite you to do the same.

Each block of time, whether it be an afternoon or an evening, has been curated with a series of offerings for you to experience.

The artist will share her practice with the live audience. This will be followed by a Q & A opportunity.

ASL Interpretation will be offered. Some blocks are open to audiences coming and going, while others we recommend you attend in full. We’ll always do our best to let latecomers in at the earliest appropriate moment based on when you arrive.

What's On Today:

The B-Side Series: Workshop with Liselle Terret (aka Doris La Trine): Inclusive Devised Theatre Practice

Start Time: 1:00pm

Running May 9-15, 2022, Hybrid by Design features seven works by artists from The Theatre Centre’s Residency program and a selection of international work curated by Battersea Arts Centre in London, U.K. As part of Canada Council’s Digital Now program, the work featured will bridge live performance and digital creation in experimental, genre-defying ways ensuring audiences in-person and at home can experience the show of a lifetime.

The B-Side Series: Inclusive Devised Theatre Practice This workshop is two-fold. Liselle Terret will share insights into the development of her solo performance practice ‘Doris La Trine’s Flushed’ and in doing so will reveal how this journey led to her developing an inclusive artistic practice that centres an ethics of care, framed within Kafer’s Political-Relational Model of Disability (2013) which she uses as a devising-framework for working with others. This workshop aims to be inclusive, participative and led by care and disruption. Participants will have the opportunity to try out some of Liselle’s evolving creative practice as a way of creating their own material.

The B-side Series offers artist-hosted workshops, conversations and activations curated by Sue Balint. Engage directly with artists and explore themes relating to their work, practice, and the future of live arts.
