  • Editorial: Being Seen and Heard
    • Abstract: In 2019, the new Methuen Drama series, Theory for Theatre Studies, released two initial offerings: Sound by Susan Bennett and Space by Kim Solga. Though the two books are separate entries in the series, they cross over in a number of ways—displaying how co-imbricated these concepts are in theatre and performance studies. For example, both Bennett and Solga use audio walks (Janet Cardiff’s Forest Walk and Platform’s And While London Burns respectively) as main case studies. Sound studies scholar Jonathan Sterne notes, “Depending on the positioning of hearers, a space may sound totally different. If you hear the same sound in two different spaces, you may not even recognize it as the same sound. Hearing requires ... Read More

  • A Sonic Sampling, a Nuancing of Space: Theoretical Insights and
           Elaborations on the Acoustic and Spatial ‘Turns’
    • Abstract: Through careful listening, audience members might reimagine the spaces they (and others) move within and between; through different observations of and engagements with space, audience members might learn to listen differently (and to listen better to others). Inevitably interrelated yet distinct in their capacity to affect, shape, and implicate diverse bodies, sound and space are ubiquitous aspects of theatre, performance, and our everyday lives. Where Janet Cardiff uses headphone theatre to inspire reflection on the perceptual impact of sound and listening, Young Jean Lee’s The Shipment repositions bodies in space to spotlight the political (and biased) spaces of the theatre. Various case studies such as these ... Read More

  • Tuning a Room: Designs for Hearing According to Nancy Tobin
    • Abstract: Attending a performance of Quelqu’un va venir by Jon Fosse in December 2002, I experienced the first instance of tuning a room by Nancy Tobin. The incursion of sound as displacement of the visual dominance of the skeletal set design became a moment of exhilaration. The sound of the knocking on the door, which was clearly happening in the performance in front of us onstage, was uncannily experienced as if coming from behind us. At that moment, we remapped the spatial and aural arrangement in our imaginations; we mirrored the effects of this sound within the skeletal house that we had been observing on the stage. In the audience, our experience became strangely spatially aligned with that of the couple onstage—we ... Read More

  • The Art and Legacy of Susan Benson’s Theatre Design
    • Abstract: Exquisitely illustrated and finely detailed, Patricia Flood’s book, Susan Benson: Art, Design and Craft on Stage, examines the work of one of Canada’s pre-eminent designers for theatre, opera, and ballet. Although Benson’s designs have appeared on influential stages across Canada and internationally, Flood’s book predominantly focuses on her artistic contributions to the Stratford Festival with additional select examples of her design work for the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada. Flood has had a lengthy career as a film, television, and theatre designer and a professor at Concordia University and the University of Guelph. Flood’s experience as a theatre designer adds a layer of detailed ... Read More

  • A Tremendous Responsibility: The Words and Work of Vera Manuel
    • Abstract: While I did not know Vera Manuel, whose plays, stories, and poetry are collected in Honouring the Strength of Indian Women, I knew of her, and one of my closest collaborators, Michelle Olson, counts Vera as a dear friend and a mentor who was for her “pivotal in so many things,” so Vera has come into my room and my work through Michelle.Honouring the Strength of Indian Women is the fifth in the University of Manitoba’s First Voices, First Texts series, and true to the series’s mandate of publishing “lost or underappreciated texts by Indigenous writers” (n.p.), the book gathers together Vera’s work, which has been both underappreciated and very nearly lost. Of the five plays, only The Strength of Indian Women has ... Read More

  • A “Shimmering Map” of Theatre and (Im)migration in Canada
    • Abstract: Yana Meerzon begins her edited volume, Theatre and (Im)migration, by referencing Stephen Larin’s editorial published in The Globe and Mail three days after Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party won a majority government in the 2015 general election. Meerzon notes that the editorial positions Canada as a multicultural, tolerant, and welcoming alternative to the closed borders and xenophobic movements gaining strength at the time (1). Four years and one general election later, I read Meerzon’s observation in relation to several high-profile incidents that call into question the hospitality and tolerance of Canadians toward (im)migrants and Indigenous peoples: Trudeau’s own blackface scandals, the formation of the overtly ...

  • Editorial: The Clowns Are Here
    • Abstract: In December 2017, Ian A. Wallace was admitted to a beautiful hospice on the University of British Columbia campus. He was dying. He was also putting some final life plans in motion, including putting us—Linda Mancini and Julia Lane—in touch with one another. We were responsible, he told us, to “tell the story” after his death. “The story,” for Ian, was that of his collaboration with Richard Pochinko, the clowning techniques they developed together, and the impact that work had on his life. It was a story that Ian told, and wrote, often. It is a story that takes us all across Canada and Europe and into the dream world as well. It is a story of both love and loss. Ian was fond of saying that Richard’s calling had ... Read More

  • Canadian Clown: A Generation’s Journey to Legitimacy, Innovation,
           and Excellence
    • Abstract: This is a story of unbridled creativity, hard-earned skill, and an enduring commitment to bringing joy to the world through the medium of clown during an era of profound societal unrest— namely, the sixties through to the millennium. Until that time, clown in most parts of Canada amounted to an occasional visit by the Shrine Circus, a questionably skilled (and often scary) birthday party entertainer, or the television presence of American ‘kiddie’ clowns.

  • The Evolution of a Clown in Service: Reflections on Therapeutic Clowning
           in Canada
    • Abstract: In 2001, I was hired to be the fourth clown in the burgeoning therapeutic clown program at SickKids hospital in Toronto. I’d been pursuing a career in the performing arts as a theatre director, a teacher of improvisation, and a clown performer in children’s television. Theatrical clowning had become my passion, and in 2001, I was studying at the Studio for Physical and Clown Exploration under John Turner and Mike Kennard when the hiring notice appeared. It instantly brought to mind a time, years earlier,(l–r): Dizzy (Kathleen Le Roux) and Peachy (Heather Annis) argue playfully to their friend’s delight.Photo by Alex Nirtawhen I’d taken my roving clown character ‘Rosy’ to interact with ill children in a Kingston ...

  • Clowning and Neutral Mask
    • Abstract: Clowning is often associated with making and wearing masks. Jacques Lecoq famously referred to the clown nose as the “smallest mask in the world” (145), and Richard Pochinko’s clown training approach begins with a Clown through Mask workshop. While some forms of clowning (such as the commedia dell’arte) use masks in performance, many incorporate the mask as a training element, only to shed it in performance. As a result, the connection between mask and clown often remains hidden to audiences.This discussion is aimed at revealing the relationship between clowning and a specific mask tradition: the neutral mask. According to Lecoq’s schema above, the neutral mask is “the one we really are” (Lecoq, Dust Jacket)—the ... Read More

  • Bouffon: The Roots of ‘Critical Clowning’ in Canada
    • Abstract: Over the past twenty years, Canadians have been documenting and celebrating various achievements related to clowning and the circus arts more generally. In 2002, Robert Astle authored Theatre without Borders, a book about physical theatre that featured six companies, as well as two prominent clown artists: Montreal’s Yves Dagenais (National Theatre School) and Vancouver’s Wendy Gorling (L’Ecole Jacques Lecoq). That same year, John Turner founded the Clown Farm, now known as the Manitoulin Conservatory for Creation and Performance. In 2004, Tony Babinkski wrote the text for Cirque du Soleil: 20 Ans Sous Le Soleil, a hardcover retrospective, and in 2013, Veronica Coburn and Sue Morrison co-authored the book Clown ... Read More

  • Clowning but Not: A Clown’s Approach to Drama for People with
           Intellectual and Physical Disabilities
    • Abstract: In 1999, I was asked to start a drama program at the Manitoba Developmental Centre (MDC) in the town of Portage La Prairie. It is one of the oldest institutions in Canada, committed to housing people with developmental disabilities and providing extensive services. When I arrived at MDC, many individuals had already transitioned into the community; however, there were still 500 residents with developmental and physical disabilities who would remain institutionalized there.I was asked not to teach clowning because residents were sometimes laughed at in the community for being different.I was a performing mime clown and creative drama teacher, and I had never worked with people with disabilities, but I was asked to ...

  • With Our Clown Nature in Mind
    • Abstract: Our mind is capable of passing beyond the dividing line we have drawn for it. Beyond the pairs of opposites of which the world consists, other, new insights begin.With this quote, Hermann Hesse provides a wonderful gateway to help introduce some aspects of what I will refer to as the ‘clown nature’ within us, and a way to begin considering the integral role it plays in helping us to realize and develop the potential of our human minds. This article looks at how the clown nature can help free our minds from limited thinking and explores some ways that it supports the integration and evolution of a more expressive and fully embodied mind.Clown car.Photo by David MacMurray SmithTo start thinking about this clown ...

  • In the Company of Mump & Smoot and Pochsy: A Conversation between
           Karen Hines, Michael Kennard, and John Turner
    • Abstract: Michael Kennard and John Turner met in 1986 in Second City workshops. They discovered their powerful connection during these early days, especially when immersed in gibberish exercises, wherein the seeds of Mump & Smoot’s Ummonian tongue were sown. It was also in Second City workshops that they met and began working with Karen Hines, who brought to the mix her own passion for dark comedy and for the horror genre.Hines was herself a performer at the time—her “poisonous pixie” Pochsy was in the works—but she also discovered a capacity for “ordering the chaos” the clowns so wildly offered up, an obsession with helping them toward precision in performance so that what Kennard and Turner discovered in the throes of ...

  • Jacques Lecoq and the Canadian Theatre
    • Abstract: There are striking similarities in the work of Canadian theatre artists Richard Pochinko, who experimented with clown theatre in the late 1970s and 1980s; Theatre Columbus, which delved into physical theatre in the 1980s and 1990s; and Theatre Smith-Gilmour, which has been producing clown and mime work since the mid-1980s.1 Each of these artists/companies emphasizes the physical aspects of theatre, each uses physical performance styles to explore nature and the human condition, and each prioritizes connection with the audience. While these similarities are apparent from even the most cursory of examinations, I wondered if I could establish an actual link between these artists/companies. And, indeed, I could. That ...

  • Re-Contextualizing Canadian Clown: In Conversation with Monique Mojica,
           Jani Lauzon, Rose Stella, and Gloria Miguel
    • Abstract: A wholly Canadian form of clowning has sprung up and is growing wild in every province, a unique hybrid of European, American, and Amerindian traditions.You can’t just take. It is a very typical settler colonial thing to say “I’ve invented this and it’s Indigenous.” Did he go through making this methodology on the land that is now known as Canada' Absolutely. But to call it Indigenous is a myth.I originally intended to write this article about the research I have conducted over the past four years that focuses on Canadian female clowns. However, as I conducted interviews with clowns across Canada and engaged with clowns internationally at festivals and on discussion panels, one question emerged repeatedly: what is ... Read More

  • A Clown of His/Her/Their Own: Clown and Gender Performativity
    • Abstract: “The feminist clown writes with her body” (219), asserts Margaret J. Irving. She “imbues her sexed body with political agency and uses it as a resource to clown” (205). This audacious testimony from Irving, herself a clown, defies centuries of rhetoric that paints women who clown as inherently non-sexual and genderless.1 Writing in 2013, Irving may be the first scholar to define the term ‘feminist clowning,’ using it as a point of inquiry into the “heteroglossia of the clown who through performance challenges patriarchal discourses” (203). Ashley Tobias further clarifies this investigation, insisting that “[t]he postmodern theatre clown does not represent a radical departure from, but rather a radical ... Read More

  • Public Private Thoughts: Short Acts by Pearle Harbour
    • Abstract: Photo by Tanja-TizianaNot all clowns are drag queens, but all drag queens are clowns. Only some of us admit that this is the case.For the past five years (the entirety of my professional theatre career), I’ve been writing and performing as my drag alter ego Pearle Harbour: wartime wonder, American dreamboat, tragicomedienne. As Pearle, in my home base of Toronto and across the country, I make work that blends the aesthetics of drag, the ethos of bouffon, and a gonzo, participatory performance style, creating uniquely theatrical spaces that celebrate the transformative power of collective experience.Pearle Harbour (Justin Miller).Photo by Tanja-Tiziana, tanja-tiziana.comBut I never intended to be a drag queen, or a ...
