Centurions is a compelling and un-sanitized exploration of friendship, love, sexual violence, silence– and our escalating entanglement with technology.
Playwright Sally Stubbs has been working with Director Lynna Goldhar Smith for two years to bring this play to life and to expand it’s potential as a community engaged youth-centred project with a team of talented profession artist-mentors and a cast of amazing young performers. We are gearing up now for some exciting developments as we continue into Phase Two of The Centurions Project.
Here is a trailer made by our young cast inviting you to support us and help us move forward on this project and to bring this worthy and beautiful play to our communities.
So Join us June 9th for the Centurions Launch Party at the Nest on Granville Island to support us in our goal of raising $10,000.00.
There will be refreshments, live music, a reading of an excerpt of Centurions, a silent auction, and we will also be launching online crowdfunding to help us reach our goal.
And here is what we will be up to in the coming months–
In July, we will spend two weeks in a residency at THE SHADBOLT CENTRE, where we will commence rehearsals and build our design.
We will also be devising community engaged programming (i.e. forum theatre) and invite a youth audience for an in-process performance during our time at the Shadbolt.
AUGUST – EVERGREEN CULTURAL CENTRE RESIDENCY
In August rehearsals continue, design elements will be finalized, programming will be finessed and the production will come to life stage.
Our performance dates are Aug 21 and 22 and we will be offering the forum theatre component as part of our Evergreen residency
THE FUTURE OF CENTURIONS:
After the evergreen residency we will assess and solidify dates for 2020/21 presentations in North Vancouver, Vancouver, and Burnaby
