Performance Lab

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 new 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 led primarily by Dave Horak and Amber Borotsik, with guest facilitators throughout the year, these sessions are for artists who are committed to technique, discipline, curiosity, and play.

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.

The drop-in sessions will run weekly, Sundays 11 am-12:30 pm, Sept 23-Aug 25 (no classes Dec 16, 23, 30) at the Foote Theatre School at the Citadel Theatre.

Fees are pay-what-you-will ($10+ recommendation)

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. Fees raised beyond the class’ operational cost will be pooled to bring in a special guest that may otherwise be inaccessible. This guest will be decided in dialogue with Lab participants. Contact Vanessa Sabourin to share your feedback and requests.
