TWENTY SOMETHING THEATRE
“THE CIRCUS PROJECT”
(In Development – title TBD)
created & devised by the ensemble
Coming off an incredible 2015/2016 season where Twenty Something Theatre earned a combined total of 8 Jessie Richardson nominations and 3 wins for both Tender Napalm & the world premiere of The Out Vigil, we are excited to get back into the rehearsal hall & start work on a new cycle of development.
On September 20th for 3 weeks, Twenty Something Theatre will begin an initial research & development phase to create an original, devised physical theatre production in the style of the novel The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern featuring collaborators Raes Calvert, Julie Casselman, Lois Dawson, Jessica Hickman, Ming Hudson, Julie McIsaac, Joel Sturrock and Artistic Producer, Sabrina Evertt.
BC Culture Days 2016 – Open Rehearsal Schedule:
- Friday, September 30 from 10am – 6pm
- Saturday, October 1st from 10am – 6pm.
- Location: Renegade Studios, E. 2nd Avenue (at Main Street), Vancouver, BC. Please note: Due to the nature of the company’s creative work, this is a continuous, full day activity with an 1 hour lunch break (pack a lunch, bring a water bottle, etc.). Participant-observers are free to leave at any time, but re-admittance is only possible after the lunch break. Not suitable for young children.
What is an open rehearsal?
An open rehearsal is an opportunity for the public to attend a typical rehearsal day for Twenty Something Theatre, to observe how we collaborate as an ensemble to create & devise the work. It is also a chance for the ensemble members to have direct contact with an early audience, receiving feedback that will guide the future development of the project. Of course, it also means that those in attendance get a sneak peek at the work itself before anyone else does. There may also be an opportunity for some hands-on participation, although this is certainly not required.

The Out Vigil by Julie McIsaac
April 4 – 7, 2017
Evergreen Cultural Centre
Coming off an award-winning World Premiere in 2016 at the Firehall Arts Centre, this five-time Jessie Nominated production is back!
Mere hours before the opening of the perilous king crab fishing season, a young Newfoundlander arrives in Alaska, desperate for a job. A local fisherman grudgingly agrees to help him out, but past & present collide when a young woman shows up. A modern fable steeped in maritime lore, The Out Vigil questions our ability to accept the natural world for all that it is, both beautiful and terrifying. Featuring Christina Cuglietta, Stephanie Izsak, Alison Jenkins, Matthew MacDonald-Bain & Zac Scott. Directed by Artistic Producer, Sabrina Evertt. Musical Direction & Composition by Julie McIsaac.
