Linda Pitt
November 12, 2015

Hello Pi lovers,

My name is Linda Pitt and I am joining Pi as the Associate Producer, through a BC Arts Council Early Career Development grant.

My journey with Pi started around this time last year when I joined Pi as the Community and Audience Engagement Coordinator for Blasted. I also had the opportunity to assistant direct the production. Working on Blasted was a hugely rewarding learning experience for me, both as an emerging artist and administrator. It solidified my commitment to create and support work that is thought provoking, risky and that expands people’s notions of what theatre...

Orwell Workshop
October 23, 2015

We’ve almost finished our first week of workshops of It’s All Over, Orwell at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby. It’s been a lot of fun working with actors Nneka Croal and Brett Harris. We’re having a conversation with George Orwell. Theatre Conspiracy’s Tim Carlson is the medium.

The first few days have been about exploring some text Tim brought into the room. The following is a snippet of dialogue spoken by characters One and Two. They’re discussing the merits of George Orwell’s famous essay Politics and the English Language, published in 1947. Tomorrow we start throwing bodies...

Inclusivity
July 22, 2015

A group of concerned theatre artists in Vancouver (lead by ReAct) have written an open letter to the Vancouver Jessie Society critiquing the lack of diversity on Jessie juries and the resulting lack of recognition at the awards themselves. 150 artists from around the city have signed the letter. There are a number of issues raised in the letter that are at once connected to, but also separate from, the Vancouver professional theatre awards.

A response has been posted by the Jessie board. Both are published below.

Have a look. Do you have a position? A comment? Do you see an elephant in the...
