Many thanks to Stratford Festival’s Creative Associate for Special Projects, Keira Loughran, and the Stratford new play development team for organizing a developmental workshop of Donna-Michelle St. Bernard’s play Give it Up. Thanks to Stratford actors Karl Ang, Nehassaiu deGannes and Carmen Grant for their insightful work.
Also thanks to Keira for inviting Body Theatre’s Artistic Director, Clare Preuss, to be part of a Stratford panel: The Making of Meaning. This panel related to devised theatre stemming from physical creation which is closely related to Clare’s Body Theatre method and was applied to the Give it Up workshop which she directed and Keira dramaturged. Clare was honored to be part of such a this panel discussion and demonstration.
