I was the Paprika Creator's Unit Facilitator for the 16/17 season. I led weekly creation sessions for a group of selected emerging artists. We were invited to create an immersive theatre experience for CSI's Toronto For Everyone's An Honest Farewell Festival. We activated a found space in Honest Ed's as part of the Public Exhibition which enjoyed sold out performances. The Creator's Unit went on to create another work entitled Sleepless Nights which premiered at the Paprika Festival and was remounted at the Toronto Fringe. You Can't Leave the Way You Came In is a journey into the surprising mysteries of things forgotten and things remembered. Follow your curiosity into back hallways to discover lost memories hidden in plain view. Imagined by Toronto's next generation of multidisciplinary creators, The Paprika Creator's Unit is the brain child behind this alternate universe.

In August 2016, I co-facilitated a 10 day Theatre and Arts Intensive with Sharada Eswar. Working with youth ages 15-22 we shared storytelling techniques, performances tools, shadow puppetry and music. Guest Artists Nova Bhattacharya and Sheniz Janmohamed joined us in-studio to teach Classical Indian Bharatanatyam and Spoken Word Poetry. The program culminated in two public presentations of work that the youth created collectively.

In 2016, I was the Movement Consultant for Silk Bath at the Next Stage Theatre Festival. Silk Bath enjoyed a nearly sold out run and garnered rave reviews for its bold theatricality. It was called, "Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and viciously on-point."

In Fall 2014, I was invited as a movement specialist and choreographer to work with opera students at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University. I taught a movement/physical theatre workshop with graduate and undergraduate students, helping them to explore the fundamentals of movement for actors. For the next few days, we applied the principles learned in the workshop to create movement for their characters in Pygmalion. Working with director Aria Umezawa, I choreographed several movement sequences found throughout the opera.

 
 
 
 
 

In July 2014, I was an Artist Guide at the Children's Peace Theatre. Over a 3 week summer camp, I led theatre for children and youth ages 8-14. I facilitated the creation of original scenes and helped youth to find greater confidence in themselves. I worked to empower them through the collaborative creation of a scene which was featured in the 14th Annual Summer Gala Event: White Noise.
