Spring Mainstage Production:

fever/dream
by Sheila Callaghan

April 7-11, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
View the Fever/Dream program on the website. 

Sheila Callaghan’s Fever/Dream is a rollercoaster ride of lyrical absurdity with a soupcon of parody and the surreal.

Seizing on real anxieties of plunging stock markets and corporate mayhem Sheila Callaghan, the author of Netflix’ series Shameless, chronicles the fortunes of the Basil Family Dynasty in this wildly modernized adaptation of the Renaissance Spanish classic Life’s a Dream.

A radical social experiment begins when eccentric billionaire  Bill Basil abdicates control of his business conglomerate to his feral, estranged son. Segismundo emerges from incarceration in the Customer Service dungeon yearning for his day of power. Meanwhile, other contenders for the corporate Presidency plot a takeover. The coldest-hearted businesswoman in the world is thwarted by a vengeful bike messenger who, in turn, is distracted by the discovery of her dead-beat dad. The rules that govern the world of corporate finance are permanently derailed as Love teaches everyone a little civilization, to the tune of Yellow Brick Road.

Fever/Dream adapted by Sheila Callaghan from the Spanish Golden Age classic by Calderon de la Barca, from Life’s A Dream.
Directed by Gyllian Raby with Dillon Bernier and Samantha Rideout, Assistant Directors. Scenic design by David Vivian, costumes by Roberta Doylend, lighting design by Chris Malkowski, sound and projections design, videography and post production by James McCoy, choreography by Rachel Romanoski, and stage management by Diego Blanco and Alyssa Ruddock.

Show Run: April 7-11, 2021 (new time!)
7:30 p.m.
Presented on the MIWSFPA YouTube Channel.

Reservations to view the Fever/Dream performance of your choice will be made available at brocku.universitytickets.com

Rise Up: A monologue workshop exploring policing, incarceration, and the resilient spirit of the Black experience in Canada

March 27, 2021 from 11 am – 1 pm

What does resistance look like? How is reform different from abolition? Are either attainable in our lifetime, and if so, how? What role does theatre (and do we as theatre makers) play in developing empathy for the beautiful struggles of IBPOC folks? How can we come together as students and as a community through the exploration of monologues and open conversation?

This two-hour workshop explores these questions through active work on theatrical monologues about policing and incarceration, and dialogue with Saleh Waziruddin, an executive member of the Niagara Region Anti-Racism Association.

The workshop is open to Brock students and recent graduates, and members of the Niagara community under the age of 30. No previous theatrical experience is required, though active and open-hearted participation will be expected. Please reach out to Karen Fricker (Associate Professor of Theatre, Brock University) with any registration questions: kfricker@brocku.ca

Workshop facilitators: Marcel Stewart, Kaylyn Valdez-Scott

Walker Cultural Leaders Series for 2020:

Theatre in The Era of Climate Crisis: A weekend of performances and discussion of the intersections between climate change, performing arts and activism

Brock University’s Department of Dramatic Arts (DART) has teamed up with the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre to offer online performances and virtual discussions that explore the intersection of performing arts and climate change as part of the Walker Cultural Leaders Series from Friday 13 – Sunday 15 November 2020.

The weekend is convened by DART Professors David Fancy and Karen Fricker and will include the sharing of five commissioned performance provocations, a live-streamed performance of Broadleaf Theatre’s award-winning production The Chemical Valley Project, co-created by Kevin Matthew Wong and Julia Howman, and a panel discussion with contributing artists Kevin Matthew Wong (Broadleaf Theatre), Santee Smith (Kaha:wi Dance Theatre), and David Fancy.

As part of the Walker Cultural Leaders Series, Brock University commissioned 10 regional theatre artists to create short online presentations exploring the climate crisis in relation to any area of their interest. The first five performance provocations will be showcased as part of the November gathering and will include artists who are performers, devisors, designers, educators, and writers. These artists have explored a multitude of themes in relation to climate change including consumerism, feminism, colonialism, COVID-19, healing, ecological grief and more. Excerpts of these works in progress will be shown followed by a talk back.

“We’re committed to manifesting Marilyn Walker’s vision and legacy of cultural leadership by bringing creative and critical attention to the climate crisis,” said David Fancy. “We’re especially grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with the PAC on this series of presentations.”

“The climate crisis is going to require our collective creativity to rise to its challenges,” said Annie Wilson, PAC’s Programming Supervisor. “We appreciate the opportunity to work alongside Brock’s Dramatic Arts Department to build this opportunity to reflect as a community on this most important issue.”

Program for Scenes from an Execution is available on the website

Fall Mainstage Production:

Scenes from an Execution
by Howard Barker

Scenes from an Execution is a genre-bending feeding frenzy of high impact theatre, art film, and social media. This production features the story of a 16th century punk feminist painter named Galactia. She outsmarts and out-arts all the other hangers-on with her ability to wield a paintbrush and her prowess with a video camera. She stores her lover in a plexiglass box, and, well, everything takes off from there… Taking place in an in-between pandemonium of dozens of separate performance spaces around the region and the world, Scenes From and Execution integrates the live and the recorded, and blood and paint, in festival of good-times-for-all that won’t be easily ignored!
Directed by David Fancy.
