ARTISTA is a free theatre program for young women for young women* 16 to 21 years old who are interested in theatre.
*Imago Theatre promotes an inclusive definition of woman which includes all people who experience the world as women; trans women, cis-women, people who identify as femme, who are feminine-of-centre, and feminine presenting people.
What to Expect
ARTISTA welcomes youth with and without theatre training.
If you don’t have theatre training, you can expect to use theatre tools to connect with other performers, gain physical and vocal confidence, and experiment with storytelling. You will learn to give and receive feedback on your work, and practice collaborating with others to present your work.
If you have theatre training, you can expect to deepen your physical and vocal confidence, hone your ability to express your thoughts and ideas, broaden your capacity for collaboration, and learn new entry points into creating and performing original work.
All participants will be pushed outside of their comfort zones.
ARTISTA welcomes people of all linguistic backgrounds. Programming is operated in English, but all participants’ writing and creations can manifest in participants’ mother tongue.
ARTISTA is hosted by the Georges-Vanier Cultural Centre, a physically accessible community space. There is ramp to enter the building and elevators to mobilize inside the building.
