finalpThe De Chardin Project

by Adam Seybold, directed by Marie Trotter

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin – acclaimed geologist, French Jesuit, and controversial philosopher – is almost dead. Almost, but not quite. His soul is trapped in a liminal battleground – memories from seventy years of consciousness are presented in an attempt to determine what rewards his contentious work will merit in the afterlife. Teilhard lived without decisively choosing heaven or hell – and now he’s not sure which one awaits him

Theatre and Reconciliation: A Roundtable

November 24, 2016


Time: 12:00pm-1:30pm
Location: Robert Gill Theatre Lobby, 214 College Street, 3rd Flr
Free Admission, All are Welcome

True reconciliation must be bone-deep. It requires nothing less than the re-imagination of our shared world. This project necessarily demands the transformative reconfiguration of cognitive and social processes in ways that move far beyond occasional applications in particular settings. As Taiaiake Alfred puts it, “Real change will only happen when settlers are forced into a reckoning of who they are, what they have done, and what they have inherited; then they will be unable to function as colonials and begin instead to engage other peoples as respectful human beings.”

The playwright-director Floyd Favel articulates the problem this way in his poem “Dream Of An Impossible Theatre”:

If you do not become a brother to us,

you will always be a stranger here.

But if you become one with this land,

And Become our true brother,


Peace will reign for many generations, and through your art you can shake hands with your ancestors

This roundtable asks: What role can theatre play in the reconciliation process? Where does this process of re-worlding begin? In research? In play creation? In performance? What does it demand of us? Where does it take us?

Roundtable Participants: Jill Carter, Sherry Bie, Paula Danckert and Sonia Norris

A Visit from Dr. Helen Freshwater

Her research focuses upon twentieth-century British theatre and contemporary performance. Recent publications include Theatre & Audience and Theatre Censorship in Britain: Silencing, Censure and Suppression (both published in 2009).

NoraHelmer2Player to Player: Let’s Hear About Nora Helmer

November 7, 2016

Time: 7:30pm
Location: Robert Gill Theatre, 214 College Street, 3rd Floor

Round 2 of the this year’s Player to Player roundtable series is just around the corner and will be featuring a phenomenal group of female actors who have been lucky enough to have played the role of Nora Helmer, from Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House.”

On November 7, Martin Julien will once again act as host and moderator and will be joined by Canadian actors, Fiona Byrne, Kat Gauthier, and Lynne Griffin. These three women will share their unique experiences playing the role of this phenomenal character who breaks the boundaries and confines of her doll like role to be a free and independent woman, a controversial commentary on the role of a wife and mother, considering the play was originally written for a 19th Century audience.

Their unique experiences will be even more pronounced as their various times in the role span decades. From Lynne Griffin who launched her career at the Stratford and Shaw Festival’s and then went on to play Nora for Theatre Plus in the late 70’s, to Fiona Byrne’s portrayal for DVxT Theatre in 2000, where a new translation and some updates were incorporated to relate specifically to the suffragette movements of the early 1900’s. And most recently Kathleen Gauthier, who has stepped into the role just this past summer for Soulpepper Theatre’s more modern adaptation of this iconic play.

3 actors, 3 experts, one night for an engaging discussion. You won’t want to miss out on this amazing opportunity to hear from these icons, whether you are a students, faculty, or general theatre enthusiasts.

The University of Toronto’s Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies; Jackman Humanities Institute; and Centre for Indigenous Studies are pleased to present Poundmaker Cree Playwright and Director Floyd Favel who will conduct a lecture demonstration on Native Performance Culture (NpC) following two days of workshops at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies

Mr. Favel describes Native Performance Culture as the development of a process “that reduces Native songs and dances to bare essentials, a process that links us to, and leads us from, the sources of this country, our life and the ancestors” (69).[1] It is a process that plunges us into deep time where, as artists and scholars, we might locate ourselves “sitting at the feet of the ancestors” (Favel 63).[2]  And it is perhaps through processes such as this, we might begin to devise works that will build a legacy of truth and conciliation for future generations in this land we now call Canada.

All-American World-wartime gal and superstar stewardess of the airforce preaches to the choir in Pearle Harbour’s Sunday School! It’s some good old-fashioned spiritual edutainment.
