The Project

The Centurions Project Phase One began in the spring of 2018 with a two week Residency at The Fishbowl  as part of the Boca Del Lupo Residency Program.

We are now well into Phase Two but if  you would like to read about how things developed since 2018 keep reading.

We brought together a talented team of  young artists and a group of dedicated professional Vancouver-based artist/mentors–actor Dawn Milman, production designer Jordan Lloyd Watkins, and stage manager Jethelo E. Cabilete–with Lynna Goldhar Smith in the director’s chair to explore Sally Stubbs’  The Centurions.

During the residency we were able to delve into the script in a rehearsal setting,

and use the resources provided to explore the technical and design elements that are integral to the play.

Over an intensive week-long workshop in March we focused on a few selected scenes and collaborated on an exploratory process involving script, acting, building a sound design, creating projections, and shooting video sequences for integration with staged scene elements.

In the second and final week of our Residency we were proud to present the results of our experiments to two invited audiences of professional theatre makers and community members who expressed enthusiasm and support for the importance of the  project.

Thanks again to the Boca Del Lupo team for this amazing opportunity to advance The Centurions Project. We are grateful for the generous support and resources provided.    

We then set about working on Phase 2 of The Centurions Project. As a result of our Residency presentation, David Mann, of Coquitlam’s Evergreen Theatre and Cultural Centre came on board as an enthusiastic sponsor and co-producer.

The Centurions Project – a production of the script and related community engaged programming – will be part of the Evergreen’s 2019/20 season and we are now in [pre-production mode as we prepare for this exciting opportunity.

Our heartfelt thanks to David and The Evergreen Theatre and Cultural Centre.

To move forward and build on this offer, we must find additional support to achieve the following goals. We will:

  • pay The Centurions Project team;
  • make The Centurions Project the best it can be;
  • tour The Centurions Project to other venues in the Lower Mainland.

We hope you will consider helping us bring this exciting, important and timely project to life in our communities.
