“Black in Canadian Theatre”, Hart House Theatre
May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
Hart House Black Futures & Hart House Theatre invite you to a virtual conversation with Toronto-based singer, actor and storyteller Nicky Lawrence.
Often in Canadian theatre, there are maybe only one or two Black performers in each rehearsal room. This in-depth discussion, led by performer and artist Nicky Lawrence, will focus on how to navigate the waters of isolation as an actor of colour.
Through intimate stories and dialogue, participants will discuss how to handle outrageous comments, how to recognize microagressions, and how to combat the racism and ignorance which still exists on many sets and in many rehearsal rooms. Nicky will share personal stories of quick action taken when she felt uncomfortable as a Black woman and discuss options of how to address these unfortunate situations.
All are welcome to join this insightful conversation.
