On October 1st, 2011 I hosted and told several stories. The night was called TELL YOUR STORY and was a part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche.
2011 led to the further planning, fabrication, outfitting and installation of Hendrik Scheel’s design “CANADA’S SMALLEST THEATRE” in my studio. Hendrik is superfamous in the German theatre scene so it was a great honour to work so closely together!
In August 2010 I began a year long Fellowship at Toronto’s largest multidisciplinary festival, Luminato.

With the festivals support and though partnerships with Theatre Local and Rose Jacobsen through PicassoPro/Creative Trust, I ended […]

We ended with a workshop presentation at the Studio de creation of Théâtre français de Toronto made […]
They say you should be careful what you wish for… I dreamed of having a functional studio I could rehearse and create in but it seemed an impossibility for my tiny space. Then, I got chatting with theatre designer Hendrik Scheel, who is based out of Berlin. He came to Toronto to visit and see […]
The artists in my community hadn’t had an opportunity to see each others work, so with the help of a small team and many mighty volunteers, we produced a 10-day festival called ARTISTS’ WEEK. It was attended by over 700 people, and over 30 artists participated.
