Project Description:


Marianne Weems and the Builder’s Association

June 2009

How has New York’s groundbreaking Builders Association honed technology as a creative mechanism in theatre? For more than a decade, Artistic Director Marianne Weems has received critical acclaim for employing modern technologies to create theatrical spectacles that integrate architecture, text, video art and sound. Marianne’s work has been called “theatrical alchemy in which ideas are turned into art by making them more beautiful.” This is a rare opportunity where participants will be able to be part of an illuminating session where Marianne will discuss her process and vast experience in multimedia and genre-crossing theatrical work, through the example of Continuous City, being presented by Luminato.

Presented by Why Not Theatre, Canadian Stage Company and Luminato Festival
