What we're about

Meetups for film and theatre lovers. Emphasis of this group is on international and local indie films and live local theatre. There are events to watch film and theatre productions as well as oportunities to participate in the making of film and theatre. I will be listing audition notices for actors, workshops in film and theatre, volunteer opportunities(where volunteer hours may get you free passes ), writing circles (for writers), festivals, and social times to talk about film and theatre (or whatever).

If you have an interest in just watching film (local and festival films) and live theatre this is a great place for you to spend hours sitting in dark rooms with new friends.

Or if you are actively involved in the making of film and theatre this is a great place to connect with other film and theatre makers, who allow the above group to sit in dark rooms for hours.

Or if you have always wanted to get involved in the making of film and theatre: acting, writing, directing, tech stuff (I don't know too much about the tech stuff but I bet you can learn how to turn those lights up and down in those dark rooms- and I'm sure lots of more interesting stuff) this will be a helpful group for you and might lead you to a new career or at least a very fulfilling hobby.

Hope we all have lots of fun in this group.

I will be posting new events shortly.

Kick At The Dark Theatre presents world premiere of "Scoop" by Julie Vandervoort

Kick At The Dark Theatre is thrilled to present the world premiere of "Scoop" by Julie Vandervoort Presented in collaboration with Eastern Front Theatre's Stages Festival, the show will play: May 30, 7pm <<<<<< Jun 1, 7:30pm Jun 2, 4pm Scoop, by Julie Vandervoort Starring Ryanne Chisholm, Samantha Wilson and Julie Vandervoort Stage management by June Zinck Lighting design by Alison Crosby Projection design by Garrett Barker Media design by Sean Skerry Directed by Andrew Chandler About the show: When a tumor necessitates a transformative surgery that leaves her with one breast and one “scoop”, willful contrarian JAY learns that buxom used to mean obedient, but she needs a word for how her body is now; and that she and NURSE THINGY aren’t going to get along. As JAY struggles with how to be one-breasted in a city where she never sees herself represented, the spirit of activist AUDRE LORDE reaches across forty years to remind her that “how to look the same is not the question some of us have.” Over the course of the play, JAY fights the shame, the urge to hide, and the pressure to acquiesce in the fiction that “nothing much happened here”. She asks: Is the hatred of asymmetry wired into the brain stem? If she were a one-breasted chicken, would she be done in by flock mentality? When the push to symmetry uses strong arms, she pushes back: when an osteopath tells her that scars are three-dimensional in the body and will try to grow through adhesions, JAY realizes her job now is to counter the pull of scar tissue. Drawing inspiration from a journey that runs from the library shelf to the 2010 Icelandic volcano eruption, by way of Titz’n’Glitz boob art and Barbie in duct tape, JAY does just that. Along the way, she finds shifting allies and antagonists who are funny, surreal and troubling. As JAY reconstructs her own kind of symmetry by “making something from what was taken”, she finds an identity she can claim: She is Scoop. Kick at the Dark Theatre Co-Operative engages under the terms of the INDIE 2.2, professional Artists who are members of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association. This year's Stages Theatre Festival is being presented in the Neptune Theatre's Scotiabank Studio (unless otherwise noted).
