Beyond the Comfort Zone: Fight Combat and Sex Onstage Workshop

This Sunday, March 18th the 2b Student Reps are hosting the first event in a workshop series called “Beyond the Comfort Zone”. This workshop series encourages students and emerging artists to step outside of their comfort zones and explore aspects of theatre which are often overlooked.

The first in our workshop series is an exploration of Fight Combat and Sex Onstage with Karen Bassett, Lee-Anne Poole, and Richie Wilcox. The first two hours will be spent learning fight combat and chatting about safe and respectful workplaces with Karen Bassett (12-2 pm). After a 30 minute break, we will learn about staging sex onstage in a safe and consenual way with Lee-Anne Poole and Richie Wilcox.

For $5+HST you can attend both workshops, or just one if you prefer! Please reserve a spot in advance as space is limited. Please pay online, or email us if you require to pay in cash.

Email if you have any questions or concerns.

This workshop is happening from 12-4:30pm in Studio 2 at the Dalhousie Arts Centre, 6101 University Ave, Halifax, NS.

2b theatre company gratefully acknowledges support from the Province of Nova Scotia (Department of Communities, Culture, and Heritage) which makes this workshop series possible.

Call for Student Reps 2018

Planning to work in theatre after you graduate? Want to get into the Halifax theatre scene but don’t know how to begin?

Become a 2b student rep! 2b student reps act as liaisons between 2b and the campus, organize outreach activities (including parties, talkbacks, and workshops), and receive informal mentoring from 2b’s artistic co-directors and management team. This volunteer position can serve as an invaluable springboard for a career in Halifax theatre. Past 2b student reps have served as Fountain School interns, returned to 2b in paid positions, and worked with other professional theatre companies. One recent group of 2b student reps later founded Keep Good (Theatre) Company.

If you’re interested in becoming a 2b student rep, email with the subject line “Student rep” and tell us why you want to work with 2b. Be concise (300 words is plenty).

Resumes are welcome but not necessary (as are videos, links to past projects, and statements of interest in any other medium).

DEADLINE: April 2nd 2018 at 11:59 pm
