DART graduates premiere new work from Theatre Beyond Words
Published on September 28 2012
The Resident Theatre Company of Brock University Theatre Beyond Words will soon premiere the 2012 Edition of Tales from the Garden. This brand-new Potato People show includes the characters Nancy Potato and friend George Beanstock entwined in hilarious escapades with industrious giant ants, a demanding trio of baby birds, a metamorphosizing caterpillar and a flash storm.
Theatre Beyond Words was founded in 1977 and remains a pioneer in the development of mask and visual theatre in Canada. The Potato People is a series of 13 non-verbal mask plays for family audiences with a unique style of visual storytelling that has inspired a generation of artists in physical theatre across the country and has won the hearts of audiences around the world.
The comedy and adventure of this Theatre Beyond Words original creation comes from the collaboration of Jacqueline Costa (DART BA ’11), Katharine Dubois (DART BA ’05, BEd ’10), Caitlin English (DART BA '09) and Carlene Thomas (DART BA ‘09, BEd ‘10). Brianne Lidstone (DART BA ‘15) is the lighting operator. Jacqueline Costa also designed and built the production.
Following four performances beginning March 23, 2012 at the Sullivan-Mahoney Courthouse Theatre in St. Catharines the company tours the show throughout Ontario.
Theatre Beyond Words will be leading a three week-long intensive Introduction to Physical Theatre during the Spring session of 2012. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
