Howland Company Workshops:
We’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic Toronto theatre professionals over the last few years. We had the honour of exploring the late actor/director Ker Well‘s powerful movement-based performance methods, Second City’s Katherine Ashby led us through a side-splitting day of actor’s improv, and we worked as script developer lab-rats with director and performance creator Philip McKee as well as with Toronto playwright Susanna Fournier.
Over the past few years, we have been joined by Holger Schott Syme: Chair – Department of English and Drama, at the University of Toronto Mississauga, working on an exciting new translation of Ödön von Horváth’s Casimir and Caroline which culminated in a staged workshop presentation at the University of Toronto’s Luella Massey Studio Theatre. We have since developed the script further with company member Paolo Santalucia and will be producing the North American premiere of this full production at Crow’s Theatre January 14th to February 9th, 2020. There was also a reading with The Howland Company of the new performance text in development by Fournier, take rimbaud. We workshopped the piece as part of our RBC Emerging Theatre Company Residency at Canadian Stage with a public showing.
