Plunge

A Showcase of Emerging Artists' Works in Progress

New Work in Development Showcase

Resounding Scream Theatre’s Plunge is a platform allowing artists to pause and share their work at pivotal moments of development, leaving space for reflection, discussion, and re-framing.

PLUNGE is a rare insight into the development process of new work. Three works in progress will be presented by emerging artists and the audience are active participants in a discussion on the artistic questions driving them.

Plunge presents works in progress; projects that are in their infancy, that have been put on the back-burner, or are feeling stuck at their current stage. It offers an opportunity for individuals to infuse excitement into their current works. This year, three projects will be selected to present short workshop performances, staged readings or physical compositions of their process thus far. These are not final drafts. Each presentation will be followed by a 15 minute audience talk back facilitated by Resounding Scream Theatre Artistic Director, Stephanie Henderson. There will be time for mingling, networking and hopefully, the conversations around these works will continue.

Water, Memory

water, memory 

Written by Ariel Martz-Oberlander
Collaborators: Natalie Davidson, Amy King

We follow a woman as she loses her memory and seeks solace from the river she grew up near. The play is a conversation between the woman and the river as they both struggle to come to terms with their own mortality, and fight to stay in this world. We explore what it means to love sick bodies and take ecosystem collapse personally.

In the Crack of Space

Written and performed by Catherine Falkner
With direction and video by Lara Abadir 

A 45-year-old woman loses the ground below her feet; she steps out and falls in between the cracks. She finds herself confronted by overwhelming loneliness and doubt. Beyond the middle point of her life who is she? She seeks to rediscover her identity. Driven on a path of sexual exploration, and cross-country travels; she moves from Vancouver to Toronto, then into her parents’ basement in Calgary. Using physical comedy, low-fi technology, and text from emails between new lovers and lost friends, Catherine shares her intimate story of falling in between the cracks.
