Obstructions

Launched Oct 27, 2011, Obstructions continues to test the theory that creativity feeds on limits, as organized and produced by the Progress Lab of indie theatre-makers!

Each participating Obstructions company submits to to a list of obstructions delivered by a shadowy emcee who will command them to create their next production around limitations inspired in part by The Five Obstructions by Jørgen Leth and Lars Von Trier. The obstructions for each company are developed in secret by their peers - a custom-designed set of obstacles that will prompt each artist to adapt to a new approach to making theatre. Their individual tendencies toward form, place, style, theme, design, period, story are exposed and obstructed, spilling the artist's bag of tricks all over the stage and out of reach.Many companies have already met their challenges. Many others have tried and failed. Read about Pi Theatre's experience through Richard's eyes. This fall, watch Neworld Theatre and Theatre Replacement attempt their challenges! Visit Progresslab.ca for more information.
