Weekly, drop-in, pay-what-you-can, performance training and professional practice sessions.

Azimuth Theatre, in partnership with The Citadel Theatre and Foote Theatre School, is offering a professional ongoing performance training laboratory for artists who are interested in a long-term, exploratory, physical practice to enhance, supplement, and complement their performative and creative capacities. A blend of methodologies with guest facilitators throughout the year, these sessions are for artists who are committed to technique, discipline, curiosity, and play.

Check Out Our Upcoming Labs!

The sessions are set at a professional training level; however, the only prerequisite for the class is a commitment to the rigours of the work. For actors, directors, creators, stage managers, playwrights, dancers, performance artists, teachers, technicians, visiting artists, emerging artists, as-yet-undefined artists, administrators, engaged and active community members.

We are open to and excited for feedback and requests. If there is someone you would like to have come in and lead a session, or a methodology you are interested in or something you would like to share, let us know.

We support and encourage the sharing of space and stories from all bodies, lands and languages. Many experiences and stories have yet to be experienced and shared on our stages. We acknowledge this and actively strive to change it. If you have yet to experience your story on stage, we are here to learn and create lasting, meaningful change together.
