The Lab

In this lab, we will explore how individual artists, collectives, and organizations can work together to open doors and create spaces that support involvement from a collection of different communities, specifically Newcomers youth. It is how we can collectively work to build a prosperous community where stories and experiences can be shared and bring us together.

About your Lab Instructor

Amena Shehab

Amena Shehab is an Arab woman. She studied at the High Institute of Theatre in Damascus and worked with Al Jazeera Children’s Channel and theatre companies in Syria and Qatar. Her first play in Edmonton was Nine Parts of Desire with The Maggie Tree in 2017, and she has been moving forward ever since. Her plays have appealed to her as a woman, as a mother, and as an immigrant. Her one-woman show, ‘Hagar’ (2019), was about a woman escaping the war in Syria so that she and her infant child could find a better life. Other plays have included Harun, FOB, the Nurse in Medea, E-Day, All That Binds Us, and Here There Be Night. She is pleased to have been able to work in these roles to share her experiences with other Canadians. Now, still moving forward, she is honoured to play Antiope, a warrior who will never leave women behind, in The Amazonamachy.
