Saturday Role Drama Workshop: Highway of the Atom

How do we enter into difficult stories and honour the multiple perspectives, issues, and individuals whose lives unfold through their stories? Whose stories are told? Whose stories remain hidden, through silence, through death, through the black marker of a government censor? Peter Van Wyck, historian, with Julie Salverson, playwright, travelled the Highway of the Atom, tracing the journey of the uranium mined in Great Bear Lake, refined in Port Hope and transported to the Manhattan Project in…See More

Jaime Beck commented on Lynn Fels's blog post Day 3 WORLD PREMIERE! SHELTER
"I loved Julie's talk! I have for so long been captured by Canadian theatre that emerged in the late 70s/early 80s, so I loved to hear her stories of being a theatre artist at that time. I also appreciated how she told stories, and cared for…"

Day 2 Working in a New Space

It is a gift to work in a new space — a space that invites you to move, to breathe, to sound your presence....a relief to step out of habits of engagement and imagine a new narrative, an embodied way of being in research and play. This musical has been living with me for a long time, longer than I had initially realized, a stop moment inviting me to turn and explore the what if? of a life imagined but left behind for something that glittered just beyond my reach—working in a dedicated space of…See More

Soleless in Edmonton

Safely arrived in a snowbank, dragging my suitcase to a warm welcome from everyone at U of A. Diane kindly suited me up with keys, computer access codes and best of all an entry card to the arts-based research studio which is beautiful! Lost the sole of my boot on the walk home from the LRT (hopefully not a metaphor). Tomorrow begins the first day of my residency!See More

Day 15: Flying Home

Posted on December 4, 2012 at 3:47pm 0 Comments

This journey has been a gift, it's been a long time since the focus of my world has been on my work, rather than all that is encompassed in an academic career....I realize through these weeks that I have come home to what matters—you might say my musical, and the space that is the arts-based research studio called me into presence. Now wide-awake, I hope that I may carry this feeling of creativity and joy back to Vancouver... my thanks to everyone who journeyed with me during my stay in…


Day 14: Putting the Musical Up on Its Feet

Posted on December 4, 2012 at 3:45pm 0 Comments

How amazing! We put the musical (a truncated version) up on its feet! My characters embodied by my energetic and wonderful volunteers spoke, fought, loved, and brought to life some of the hours and hours of script I had created during my time in the Studio. There were lines spoken by characters that had me wincing, others that simply sang—bringing a script to life requires breath and body. The best scene (at least in terms of playwright's folly) was in the medical clinic in which a child's…


Day 13: A Consultant Arrives to Play

Posted on December 4, 2012 at 3:33pm 0 Comments

Wow! What fun! Nikki who will be one of two artists-in-residence in the winter semester, arrived at the studio, ready to sail into improvisation. I was curious about one of my characters, Tom, en route from his medical practice in the city to a clinic he volunteers in overseas, so I put him on a plane, with a seatmate. Nikki created a consultant, divorced, with two kids, who I suspect will be a character in the final version of the musical. The gift of collaboration is the unexpected that is…


Day 12: Witness to the Text That Arrives

Posted on November 27, 2012 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

Today I am transcribing, all the digital recordings that I have made in the past two weeks, now being captured in text. Diane has suggested that we workshop the musical on Thursday....I am curious to hear their meet these characters who have been keeping me company in the studio. Meeting new people, listening to new stories, new ideas is exciting...this studio retreat is going too quickly! I want to hold on to each day, and say, wait a minute, give me more time—but it seems that…

Have a nice day.
