  • To My Younger Self
    • Abstract: Thanks for writing. Try not to stop. Pausing is fine, let that happen if it must, but don't stop writing: plays, poetry, prose, letters, journal entries, or any other form technology may evolve. There's not much point in trying to understand why you have to do it. Accept it. Do it.This advice has nothing to do with money—unless it has to do with lack of money. This advice is about mental health: yours and that of those around you, especially your loved ones and your co-workers. You see, whether you are writing or not, you are a writer. Accept it. Do it. It's central to your grounding now. And for you, without that grounding, love will not come easily, and good work will be a struggle.Surprisingly, mental health is ... Read More

  • Hey Denise
    • Abstract: There you are, lonely in a city that is not your home. You are not even 20 years old, but you've been out on your own for five years—moved by yourself to live in three different cities and, indeed, you are lonely.Although you continue with this difficult life in the ballet, you are slowly awakening, and for the first time you are questioning how you will actually fit into the reality of making it your career. The stress and pain of your injured ankle, the doubts about striving for perfection as a hyper-feminine archetype in your nearly six-foot-tall body, these are adding up. The world beyond the constraints of classical ballet lures you all the time, and so you make wacky decisions, some of them dangerous, but ... Read More

  • Dear Jacob
    • Abstract: Please be specific. There are very few things that are universal, and none of them involve human relations. Human relations are specific—embrace your specificity and the specificity of others.Find good people and work with them. Also, invite in new people. Sometimes, you'll have to do everything yourself. But less often than you think. Ask for help.A "new same" is also oppressive. Look for solidarity with difference.Humans aren't consistent. Embrace that as a performer and writer.If you enjoy something, that doesn't mean you need to move away from it. Denial of pleasure is not helpful and is not the same as "artistic growth."We can play the conditions. We can work to change the conditions. We can create new ... Read More

  • Dear Ann
    • Abstract: I've been on quite a journey, and I remember you, dear younger me.You aren't really sure where you are going or how to get there. But you did know that the performing arts were your passion, that you had something to offer it, and it was where you wanted to be. So, (spoiler alert) you walked away from your cubicle and your pension in corporate Newfoundland, and you jumped in. While the financial instability and the unknown will scare the bejeezus out of you at first, ultimately, you will discover it will be pretty liberating.You do think that this industry might be better to women. That it will be perhaps more equitable. Sad to tell you that won't always be the case. Long hours, not-so-great pay stubs, long ... Read More

  • To My Younger Self
    • Abstract: I want to tell you how it ends. Well, not "ends" ends. We don't know that yet (though we think about it all the time). I want to tell you where you will be when you are here, at the end, where I am now, where we all are.Where I am now is both much better and much worse than you can imagine. The world is on fire, and everything is terrible. You are surrounded by more love than you ever knew was possible.You can't stop bad things from happening. But you can choose how to be. You can choose to be helpful and compassionate. You can choose to be supportive, respectful, generous, and kind. You can choose to build people up, to appreciate their magic. You can choose to take care of people. You can choose who you ... Read More

  • Dear Chad
    • Abstract: I see you crying in the high school hallways, attempting to destroy vacuum cleaners that stand in for ignorant audience members. I see you at 17 years old writing a play called Weaknesses of the Mind about an exotic dancer who has to deal with sexual assault and an almost equally terrible ally. I see you have to edit out all swearing to submit the play to your high school playwriting contest. You win this contest and receive a special award on the school stage for being the only submission. I see you move to Vancouver to attend Studio 58 even though you have never been west of Saskatoon before. I see you bawl your eyes out again, two years later, when asked to leave the school for good. This should have been the ... Read More

  • Letter to Younger Self
    • Abstract: It is probably a wise thing to avoid narcissism at most levels, without giving up on a sensible degree of self-scrutiny to know precisely what ground we stand on, who we are, and what we might represent to somebody else. (I am speaking as an attempt at a collective spirit that is otherwise often missing in the individualizing effects of everyday life that we continue to resist in these remaining, failing efforts toward a theatre.) So, I don't know if through whoever and whatever time-travelling lens it might be possible for you—myself—to read this, but presuming it is a point of reflection around lessons learned, and what might be most precious in maintaining a spirit of the present—at whatever stage or time we ...

  • To the Punk I Once Was, Forty or Fifty Years Ago
    • Abstract: The other day, I began a substantive cleaning of my house from the attic to the basement: drawers, cupboards, you name it. Nothing went untouched.Doing that, I accidentally came upon a notebook where, in forgotten times, I'd scribbled down a poem by T. S. Eliot:Time present and time pastAre both perhaps present in time future,And time future contained in time past …Reading and digesting these words was a perfect distraction from cleaning. A platform for just being. Gradually, I was caught by a feeling that everything of importance was intact within me, and I didn't need outside objects to remind me of where my life had taken me. I realized most things in my possession were kept for sentimental reasons: a ... Read More

  • Dear Mini Jasmine
    • Abstract: You are only 3, maybe 4 years old. You awake slowly from your afternoon nap, step out of your room, and walk toward the big window in the living room. You observe your mother and father outside. Your mother's back is arched over, and her hands are buried in the ground. Your father, shovel in hand, is turning over the soil.They're gardening.This is how they grow dozens of vegetables every year. You often pick them yourself before devouring them raw. Your parents freeze them, or use them to make juice. In the first four years of your life, those are the only ways you know how vegetables are eaten. They also have laying hens, chickens and rabbits that you raise for food.You continue looking through the window for a ... Read More

  • Dear Shelagh
    • Abstract: I am writing from under the vast Australian sky and thinking of the thousands of miles you will travel over the next three decades to reach this place.Here you are on the doorstep of adulthood, leaving the land of your childhood propelled by a desire to see as much of the world as you can. As with all children of the colonies, you carry multiple worlds in your head. Images of hippos in the Zambezi River alongside the poetry of Wordsworth. The stories of evil spirits who could possess your body alongside Shakespeare acted out in hot African classrooms. Playing Famous Five with your friends in the crackly brown bush of the drought—your picnic of imaginary hard-boiled eggs, scones, and lashings of ginger beer.Arriving ... Read More

Our goal in assembling this issue is to open a space for theatre artists and scholars to consider shifts brought about by the #MeToo movement along with other significant ... Read More

  • "Sorry Not Sorry": Apologizing in the Wake of #MeToo
    • Abstract: The expression "sorry not sorry" and its attendant hashtag entered the popular vernacular several years ago as an often-empowering, tongue-in-cheek affirmation that at once acknowledges "bad" or transgressive behaviour and disavows it. In the context of the #MeToo movement, and particularly on social media, the expression has also been applied to criticize apologies issued by those accused of sexual misconduct and harassment:The singer-songwriter has given the standard #MeToo apology, but some see his behaviour as just part of the rock star package. That's not good enough […]#EnoughIsEnough #Timesup #RyanAdams #SorryNotSorry.(@SIAngie2)Self-proclaimed #feminist Canadian PM @Justin-Trudeau is #SorryNotSorry ... Read More

  • Performing This is For You, Anna as #MeToo: Sexual Harassment and
           Performance-Based Activism on a University Campus
    • Abstract: In the fall of 2017, with the #MeToo movement raising critical discussions about sexual assault and harassment, two students at St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) were arrested on charges of sexual violence.1 As the case gained national attention, the university community learned that the accused students were high-profile football players. Despite the popularity of the accused, StFX students formed the "We Stand Together" campaign as a localized version of #MeToo and released a statement speaking out against sexual-based violence to the university. In support of these survivors and student activists, the on-campus company Theatre Antigonish staged the feminist collective piece This is For You, Anna in February ... Read More

  • Institutional Responses to #MeToo: A Conversation
    • Abstract: Natalie Alvarez, Associate Editor of CTR, hosts a conversa-tion with administrators, artistic directors, and heads of programs from across the country about how institutional policies and cultures have shifted in the wake of #MeToo. This conversation comes with some challenges. It is difficult, after all, to take stock of the cultural impacts and effects of a movement that is still unfolding. But from within these shifting waters, the participants reflect on the changes they are currently witnessing in their institutional ethos and how these changes are impacting the relationship between training institutions and the performing arts industry.The conversation features Kristian Clarke, Executive Director of the ...

  • From a Living Room to a National Network: The Story of Got Your Back
    • Abstract: In May 2017, Martha Burns and Thalia Gonzalez Kane gathered a group of ten female-identifying artists, at various stages in their careers, to discuss the state of the performing arts industry and the ways we could become stronger allies to one another. Over the course of that evening, wine was poured, snacks were eaten, discussions were had, and, at the end of the night, email addresses were being exchanged. We knew that we had found something special and that it was essential for our community to continue. This was the beginning of Got Your Back.The "Living Room" model is one that remains a key component … of the Got Your Back mission: creating safe places for artists to gather and connect face to face.In that ...

  • An Interview with Intimacy Coach Siobhan Richardson
    • Abstract: In the fall of 2018, Siobhan Richardson visited Ryerson University's School of Performance to lead intimacy coaching in its production of Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad and conduct a workshop for students. Eager to learn more, a group of fourth-year acting students—Margot Greve, Ben Kopp, Claire MacMaster, Paige Madsen, Sienna Singh, and Olivia Tharme—sat down with Siobhan to ask some of their burning questions about the burgeoning profession of intimacy coaching in Canada.How did you find intimacy direction, and what is it that drew you to this kind of work'So, I think this is actually a fairly amusing situation. I was in And Then The Lights Went Out at Stage West in Calgary, and I had a stage kiss, which I ... Read More

           Learned about Staging the Birds and the Bees
    • Abstract: Everyone remembers learning about sex in school; everyone remembers that special day, that dreaded and embarrassing yet titillating day, when the teacher pulled out "the box." The box that would soon contain the questions that burn in the hearts and imaginations of all high school students when faced with the prospect of learning everything you ever wanted to know about sex. "Can you get pregnant from oral sex'" "What is the normal size for a penis'" "How does gay sex work'" Question after question, and the resulting answers, delivering the promise of new information, new insight, new revelations about what to expect when it happens to you. That box was a treasure chest of possibility, and with each anonymous ... Read More

  • A Watershed Moment: Transitioning to Gender-Neutral Performance Awards
    • Abstract: I, Jacoba Knaapen, am a white, cisgender, hetero female whose parents immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in the fifties.

  • How Do You Stage a Problem like Kevin Spacey' Reflections on
           Performance and Consent, with Help from Ellie Moon and Adam Lazarus
    • Abstract: The following short article adapts and expands on a post I wrote for my teaching blog, The Activist Classroom, on 20 November 2017, shortly after allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and other powerful theatre and film-makers became public. Here, I share thoughts from then, and look back on them now, in March 2019. I was then, and continue now to be, provoked by this question: what ethical and aesthetic challenges do we face as we strive to perform—and thereby debate—issues of sexual violence and consent on our contemporary stages'It's November 2017, and I've been watching the Weinstein horror show from the sidelines with the same complicated mix of eagerness and devastation as the next woman I know. ...

  • Asking for It
    • Abstract: Jaa Smith-Johnson (facing) and Ellie Moon and Christine Horne (l–r in foreground).Photo by Jeremy Mimnagh.The following are selected scenes from Asking for It, by Ellie Moon. The play draws on interviews conducted in 2015—16, when the playwright and protagonist was 22 years old. #MeToo had not yet broken, but privately young people were having in-depth conversations about their experiences with consent—and the ambiguities they sometimes felt around this idea. The play tries to capture some of these concerns about consent and to put the discussions people were having privately into the public sphere.The Jian Ghomeshi story had just broken, and I was struck by the ways in which the public conversation around this ...

  • Editorial: Best Wishes—Letters to Younger Selves
    • Abstract: The idea of making a pact with myself came to me last year when I started creating something new and I observed I was immediately longing for the experience to be over. This realization made me question if I should be doing theatre anymore. To make the thought worse, I didn't know how long I had been feeling this way, or when the feeling had started. So, the deal I made with myself was to first complete any projects I had already said I was going to do, then stop and ask myself if I was still having fun.Best Wishes was a project I made in 2007 with help from Joseph Unrau. Together, we imagined a project made up of ten letters written by Nova Scotian artists we had personal connections with. One hundred copies of ... Read More
