After the coop's formation in May 2015, the company began working on their inaugural full length work, A Record of Us. The work was developed through an extended exploration process with creative residencies and community partnerships with the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, St. Thomas University, and a technical residency at the Fredericton Playhouse Theatre. The final performance, a main stage production in partnership with the Notable Acts Theatre Festival, gracefully launched the new company into the world. The company is currently training a new group of emerging artists and in the spring of 2017 will begin work on two new short works all in support of the coop's mandate of creation, and development of original works through meaningful experimentation, and curiosity.
A RECORD OF US
A Record of Us is a physical exploration of what it means to be a New Brunswicker that fuses text and movement together in a series of living snap-shots. Using the text of celebrated New Brunswick author David Adams Richards as the catalyst, the company has built a performance that evokes the raw beauty, the enduring humour and the hardscrabble realities of this province.
