One Trunk Theatre: Design for Non-Designers: Coffee Date #1, April 20

Artist Involved: Matthew Waddell & Laura Anzola (Calgary), Projection & Animation Designers of Red Earth, hosted by jaymez, local Winnipeg multimedia designer, and sound designer of Red Earth

DESIGN FOR NON-DESIGNERS: COFFEE DATE #1: Demystifying projection design, live video and digital art for the stage with AZMA Digital: Matthew Waddell & Laura Anzola (Calgary), Projection & Animation Designers of Red Earth.

10:30am-12:30pm, April 20th, Forth Cafe

Hosted by jaymez, local Winnipeg multimedia designer, and sound designer of Red Earth, this is a conversational-style workshop open to all; but, especially geared towards theatre artists who aren't primarily designers: directors, actors, playwrights and administrators. Matt & Laura will discuss their design and principles, the techniques and technologies they use and their perspective of what role their art form plays in Red Earth, and in contemporary theatre in general. Discussion on best practice for collaboration between designers and directors/designers and theatre creators; and integrating new media will ensue. The goal of the workshop is to unpack the theatrical process from a design perspective in order to highlight the importance of a designer's role in production and inspire non-designers with new ways and best practice to collaborate with a design team.

A second coffee date will be held the following week to dive into lighting design with Siminovitch prize nominated Itai Erdal.

$30 workshop fee, $40 workshop + ticket to the show, $50 to attend both Coffee Dates, $60 to attend both Coffee Dates + a ticket to the show
