Looking back at 2016

Well, it's the first day of the new year and I have to say, it's been a ride! Last year was full of all things theatre, from acting and designing to stage managing, it was a fantastic and fun year!  

Summary of highlights. Was part of 5 shows, of which "RED" by Aenigma Theatre got into Vancouver Presents' top 10 plays of 2016 and "The Orbweaver" which got into Colin Thomas' top 10 list of Theatrical Experiences of 2016.

 

In the acting department, I was fortune enough to be part of a new show by And Garland, "Juice". I played a variety of shows in "The Laramie Project" and finished the year by working with the Playwright Theatre Centre's "Island",  part of their Playwright Colony workshop! 

In the design department I had the pleasure to work with the Aenigma Theatre team again after two years of sound design hiatus. We put on "RED"  by John Logan, which earned a spot in "Vancouver Presents" top 10 plays of 2016! I was also fortunate enough to assist with the sound design of "Romeo E Giulietta" by Il Centro Players and "Comfort Cottages" by Western Gold Theatre.

In the Stage Management department, I worked with Il Centro Players and their rendition of "Romeo e Giulietta" and also with the wonderful production of "The Orbweaver", a Mexican theatre production which just got into the top 10 Vancouver plays list of Colin Thomas, one of the most respected and influential critics of the Vancouver theatre scene!

Last but not least, I took my first class with On The Mic Training and it was an absolute blast! I'm really looking forward to keep on wiring with them on 2017!  

I'm really looking forward to this year and all the crazy adventures it may present! And regardless of what those are, one thing is for sure... I'm already working with the amazing team of K.I.A Productions and the members of Gas Pedal Productions on our next big project! Look forward for more in the next couple months!
