Revelstoke-based Flying Arrow Productions has issued a call for young artists for a theatre workshop as part of The A.B. Project, an international experimental youth participation theatre production that is based around youth responses to the 2011 attack in Norway by far-right terrorist Anders Breivik. The project is undertaken in partnership with internationally recognized dramatist David Glass.
According to a release issued by Flying Arrow, "the young will take back what was taken from them: the future. [...] Their completed project will tell the victims’ stories through drama, dance, music, design and media." The workshop is one of a series in the international project, which will include participants from ten different countries. During the workshop, the young performers will be working toward an opportunity to be part of the international ensemble led by David Glass, and a chance to work on the final devised production, which will launch at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in the UK.
The A.B. Project workshop takes place April 8–9 at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre in Revelstoke. To read more about the project, or to apply to participate, visit the Flying Arrow Productions website at www.flyingarrowproductions.ca/ab-project/.
