This volume is all about barriers in the/to the theatre.
Barriers to speaking about the state theatre in Canada, barriers to talking about our own work with each other, barriers to early career artists practicing their craft.
Our Geographic Correspondents look at this issue from 3 disparate corners of the country. I decide to get my own feedback on the play I just closed, publicly, from a playwright and a dramaturg I have worked with before. In Vancouver, Christine Quintana raises an even bigger question than how do emerging artists get work: How to overcome the barriers that prevent you from being good at theatre?
Collectively these pieces represent a smattering of barriers, broadly speaking, to theatrical communication. I am fond of this volume as each article hopefully breaks these barriers down a little bit.
