Devised Theatre Festival 2020
Mar 10 – Mar 14 all-day

Devised Theatre Festival 2020
March 10 – 14, 2020

The Devised Theatre Festival premieres three captivating new productions, each conceived, created, produced, and performed by fourth year Devised Theatre students in the Performance, Creation, and Research stream in York University’s Theatre program.

This year, the theme for the Devised Theatre Festival is: Escapism in the age of the Experience Culture, wherein we ask questions about how we try to escape, why we might feel the need to escape, and why this desire to escape may be problematic.

The three shows featured in this year’s festival are: Auto-nomy, a seductive physical theatre piece about companion robots who gain sentience, by The Vector Regime; Five, an intermedial physical theatre piece about four young women who are trapped inside a video game, by Mind Yo’ Business Productions; and Goodnight, Sunny, a magic realism piece about two siblings, Jonathan and Jamie, who go on one final adventure with their imaginary friend, Sunny.

Each show is presented by a production company formed by a student ensemble within Devised Theatre.

The Devised  Theatre Festival runs in two series, each presenting a double bill:

Tuesday, March 10th: Company A: The Vector Regime (7:00pm) | Company B: Mind Yo’ Business Productions (8:30pm)

Wednesday, March 11th: Company B: Mind Yo’ Business Productions (7:00pm) | Company C: Triptych Theatre Collective (8:30pm)

Thursday, March 12th: Company C: Triptych Theatre Collective (7:00pm) | Company A: The Vector Regime (8:30pm)

Friday, March 13th: Company C: Triptych Theatre Collective (3:00pm) | Company A: The Vector Regime (4:30pm) | Company B: Mind Yo’ Business Productions (6pm)

Belly Dance as Mindful Movement for Stress Reduction
Mar 11 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

 

Belly Dance as Mindful Movement for Stress Reduction

This movement-based workshop utilizes belly dance vocabulary designed for self-soothing. Learn movements that support the reduction of stress and anxiety symptoms. Participants will leave with applications on how stress responses can be experiences on a spectrum from hyper-arousal (feelings of overstimulation) to hypo-arousal (feelings associated with low-energy or burnout). Belly dance used as mindfulness offers gentle wavey movement designed to down-regulate physical stress responses. This workshop also combines more energizing vocabulary through shimmying and shaking as well as core engagement to support up-regulation of the nervous system, based on internal rhythm and percussion.

 

About the Facilitator :

Shaila is completing her Masters in Dance at York University. She concurrently training as a Dance Movement Therapist through the National Centre for Dance Therapy in Montreal. Her work focuses on belly dance practices that use sensuality as a healing tool within dance interventions. Her movement offerings look at building resiliency, decoupling stress responses and promoting body positivity. Shaila provides a unique framework that maps belly dance vocabulary for nervous-system regulation. Shaila has been an active member of the Toronto belly dancing community for over a decade, both as a performer and instructor. She currently works as a Health Educator and Training Specialist and enjoys offering students training on mental health and well-being.
