What’s Cooking 2016

News

We’re excited to host What’s Cooking?, a sneak-peek of six locally created works in front of a live audience. Six different works-in-progress from across Alberta’s artistic disciplines will be workshopped with an audience in an afternoon and evening performance.

With no stage proper, the performers and audiences will share the space and conversation, over food generously donated by Remedy Cafe.

DATE: Sunday, April 24
TIMES: 12pm & 6:30pm
VENUE: PCL Studio Theatre in the ATB Financial Arts Barns (10330-84 Avenue)
COST: Admission is by donation, with a suggested $10/show or $15 for full day.
Tickets are only available at the door.


Afternoon Show
Doors open at 12pm with food served immediately, performances begin at 12:30pm

The afternoon show features three works including The Listener by Calgary-based Jill Henis. Also on the afternoon bill, the dance piece Asking the Internet by Kari Larson. This work is being prepared for the 2016 Fringe season, involving two people in their living space who are mysteriously and furtively contacted through something magical called the Internet. Pick Me Up will feature choreography by Vincent Forcier, with movement by Sarah Feutl and Larissa Pohoreski and music by Joel Crichton. The performance piece will embody the physical manifestation of depression.

Audience members will be given written surveys to comment on the works shown and a short Q&A session will follow each performed piece.


Evening Show
Doors open at 6:30pm with food served immediately, performances begin at 7pm

The evening show will showcase three works-in-progress including the dance piece, Please keep moving forward… and unexpected directions by Alex Sutherland. Edmonton theatre veteran, Steve Pirot will perform The Towne-Crier Of Hamelin, a work he began more than a decade ago in response to a call for scripts from Northern Light Theatre. Larissa Poho will present the current iteration of her creation, Fovea.

Audience members will be given written surveys to comment on the works shown and a short Q&A session will follow each performed piece.
