About the Residents:

Raised in Brampton Allison Edward-Crewe began singing and dancing at a young age. During her time at St. Augustine S.S. she continued to surround herself with the arts, playing Trumpet, singing in the Choir and performing in annual theatre productions. She was accepted into Sheridan College’s Musical Theatre Performance Program and graduated early to be part of Dreamgirls at The Grand Theatre and since then has been performing on stage and screen across North America.

Miquelon Rodriguez is a sound designer, composer, digital content creator, actor, and an emerging director and arts leader based in T’karonto.

He is a graduate of the Artistic Leadership Residency at the National Theatre School of Canada and has worked with a multitude of artists and companies across Turtle Island.

About the Author

With firm footing in performing arts practice and community building, I'm curious and passionate about change, systems, and participation. I'm a producer and an artist. I value collaboration, efficiency, and resourcefulness. Currently Artistic Director of Kingston-based SpiderWebShow Performance, which includes co-curating and producing the Festival of Live Digital Art (FOLDA). During eight years as Artistic Producer of Neworld Theatre, I collaborated with colleagues to found PL 1422, a shared rehearsal and administration hub in East Vancouver, as well as shepherding the creation and production of over 80 live events – including a series of 11 "podplays" audio plays before podplays were cool. In 2015, I was the inaugural artist in residence on CBC Radio’s q based on my digital project The Apology Generator. My formal training is in arts creation and producing, and I have practical experience managing production projects, festivals, and special events. I'm functionally bilingual in English and French. I'm a parent, a gardener, a cook and have recently started running.
