The Double

the-double.252x408Mention this Double post card and receive 25% off tickets!

Our acclaimed, Dora award-winning production of The Double is up and running at Tarragon theatre tillNovember 24th – and Tarragon is offering a great 25% discount if you mention receiving a Double post card…

Here’s what the critics are saying this time around:

“The Double’s exceptionally clever script borrows heavily from Charlie Chaplin […] evoking a sense of timelessness, fate and the surreal that provides a perfect backdrop for this entertaining exploration of identity crisis. 5 *’s”
-Annie Hodgins, Theatromania.ca

“…brilliant…dazzling…an engrossing, funny-sad study of a man slipping further and further from reality. I’d rush and get a ticket on the double. 3/4 *’s”
-Robert Crew, The Toronto Star

“…builds to a comedic frenzy and you feel, like Golyadkin, that reality is slipping through your fingers. Solid, zany fun!”
-Andrew Mackay, PostCity.com

“Someone beside me whispered the name Chaplin. It’s no mistake to think of The Double in the same league as those icons. They create characters that are very different from us, like nothing we’ve seen before. At the same time, in the hands of great performers like Charlie, Groucho or the three men in The Double, there is something intrinsic, identifiable and universal we can all identify with. It’s rare and remarkable […] Seating is limited, so make plans to see The Double on the double!”
– George Perry, Mooneyontheatre.com

“The music, in collaboration with the phenomenally inventive lighting design by Andre du Toit, make for a sensational sensory experience.”
-Keely Kwok, Charlobois Post

The Actor/Creator & The Ensemble workshop

New Workshop with Ravi Jain and Adam Paolozza December 2-6, 2013

The Actor/Creator and the Ensemble

5 Day Intensive Workshop

What does it mean to be an actor/creator?
How does one “write on one’s feet”?
What does it mean to be part of an ensemble?
…and what the hell is collective creation anyway?

These are questions that we encounter all the time from theatre artists who are frustrated with conventional processes and yearn for something more. Artists who wish to create their own work collaboratively but haven’t been exposed to the practical skills involved in such a feat.

Our pedagogy is based on the Lecoq training, however, it is a little known fact that 50% of the training at Lecoq is self-directed creation. We will re-create these conditions during this workshop.

We are proposing a 5 Day intensive workshop focusing on developing skills that are practically useful in the creative process

We will focus on:

actor training – based on movement technique and improvisation (how does the actor/creator move and play in the space)
developing the ensemble dynamic (how does the actor/creator move and play with others in the space)
*scene creation (how does the actor/creator mobilize all these skills towards creating a dramatic situation)

This workshop is designed for performers/writers/directors of all disciplines and skill levels who wish to explore their physical presence, improve their ability to improvise and “write on their feet” and develop a healthier ensemble dynamic during the creative process.

December 2-6, 2013
2-7pm

Fee:
$350 + HST (20% Union Discount for all members)

Some scholarships available.
