Creative Approach and Experiences OfferedI strive to offer a safer creative space where students are encouraged & emboldened to make strong & honest choices in theatre games, scene studies & improvisations. My holistic, text/structure-based approach focuses on dynamic storytelling & clear character development. I believe that theatre is a fantastic way to engage students & provide them with unique tools to achieve their specific goals & understand the bigger picture.
Over the years, I've developed a Musical Theatre Creation course that has been offered at both the Segal Centre Academy & Montreal Children's Theatre in year-long, summer camp, workshop & virtual settings. Although the course always begins the same, with students sharing their stories & interests, the outcomes always prove to be wildly different in surprising ways. The course is a collaborative way for students who enjoy music & theatre to build something innovative together whether it's based on their own experiences or subject material from their classes.
