TBD: An Emergent Property

January 16, 2013

1

For the record, TBD isn’t the first time I agreed to write a play from scratch for the Ottawa Fringe. Back in February 2007, having just returned from Ottawa, Dave Dawson asked me to write something for his upcoming Fringe tour, which started in Ottawa. At the time, I had pretty much sworn off writing […]

July 15, 2010

10

More than one Fringe pal — old and new — has said the Winnipeg Fringe feels a lot like summer camp. Theatre folk descend on Winnipeg from all over the world. Everyone is ready to make new friends and reconnect with old friends from the year before and, in many cases, from the years before. […]

Fourteen Short Free-Associations About The Edmonton Fringe

104th Street and 82nd Ave. Edmonton. A clear wordless mind. I want to write, instead I watch the world go by. Amy arrives. We discover we are both Virgo. She has a friend and she doesn’t want to jinx it. I tell her, “Somethings are possible only if you open yourself to the possibility of […]

From Saskatoon To Edmonton: A Tale Of Two Fringes

August 11, 2009

Words can only create a mosaic, a mosaic that is never seen from sufficient distant and, without that distance, the whole picture is never fully realized. The performers of the Saskatoon Fringe are […]

Saskatoon Fringe Wordsnap: The Off Broadway Arts Centre

August 3, 2009

For the performers, the Off Broadway Arts Centre green room is the heart and soul of the Saskatoon Fringe. There is a games room, a bar, comfy couches, internet access, inexpensive pasta and sauce, and pay-what-you-can coffee. We meet, we greet, and friendships are born. And whenever you throw that many talented people into one […]
