Episode 16 - Liza Giffen

Hey folks,

We're so busy in the theatre world trying to make ends meet, trying to put on a show, trying to get things running, trying to establish ourselves, etc. that it isn't often we take the time to reflect on what came before us. Luckily, there are those in the theatre community who have made it their profession to collect and maintain these records for ours as well as future generations. In Episode 16 of Informalities we sit down with one such person, Liza Giffen, the director of the Stratford Festival Archives, to discuss just what inspires her about her work and how the theatrical community at large can benefit from it.

We've got some big news coming down the pipe so stay tuned and have a wonderful and safe New Years.

Informally yours,

Informalities Episode 6!

Here at Informal Upright we're proud to converse with a member of the theatre communities of Toronto or Kitchener-Waterloo every month to explore their views on theatre and discover more about their practice. This month we bring you:

Tyrone Savage, founding member of the Red One Theatre Collective.

We had a great time sitting down with Tyrone and discussing his views on how to grow an indie theatre company in a place like Toronto where, ecologically, new indie theatre companies can feel like a drop in the vast ocean. We're also proud to be the platform through which Tyrone has announced his upcoming indie project.
