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. Connect, network, and share news in a casual and fun environment. Rumble Theatre invites all artists who self-identify as “emerging” to join us for these fun and stimulating evenings of conversation and community-building. Each event is centred around a specific theme. The Living Room is free-of-charge and no advance sign-up is required.
Private = public: putting your own story onstage
PL1422 studio (1422 William Street)
Vancouver, British Columbia
What’s the cost of making a play about yourself? What if you’re not a “playwright” but you have a great story to tell? Where do you find the courage to share your personal secrets? Inside everyone is a story. And sometimes that story ends up onstage as a one-person show! Come hear guest artists Tetsuro Shigematsu (playwright, performer for Empire of the Son) and Quelemia Sparrow (playwright, performer for O’wet/Lost Lagoon) talk about their processes of turning personal history into public theatre. Conversation moderated by Pedro Chamale, playwright, performer and co-AD of rice & beans theatre.
