Join FRESH SHEET! Support independent theatre criticism!

Yesterday, I launched a Patreon campaign. It’s all about creating an alternative funding source so that I can keep writing about theatre. 

The video explains it all.

And, when you’ve been thoroughly convinced by the video, here’s where you can join the revolution by supporting my campaign.  

It’s really important to create momentum, so please share this post FAR and WIDE!

Thanks!

Oh, and the Patreon template is a little confusing, so if you’d like to make a pledge, here’s how to do that:
– Click BECOME A PATRON. (It’s in an orange box)
– Enter the dollar amount. (It looks like a one-dollar pledge is your only option, but it’s not. Enter any amount you want.)
– Click CONTINUE.
– Click CONFIRM AND PLEDGE.
Thanks again. 🙂

My top ten theatrical pleasures of 2015

Hooray for Vancouver theatre makers!

I’m especially pleased to note that my Top Ten list of theatrical experiences from this past year includes a whole bunch of work from emerging artists as well as seasoned pros.

Okay. I’m going to run through my faves in chronological order, starting with the most recent.

 

Billy Marchenski, Radix Theatre, TBD, Tibetan Book of the Dead

Billy Marchenski was one of the spirit guides in Radix Theatre’s TBD.

Radix Theatre’s TBD

Inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead, this immersive experience altered my emotional landscape.

Every day for 21 days, the folks from Radix Theatre initiated some kind of interaction with every one of the souls in the 75-member audience, leading us through our own deaths to our rebirths. Sometimes participants would simply get text or audio messages. And sometimes deities would show up in our lives. (Radix tracked us, using an app that we all agreed to install on our cell phones.)
