Issue 13.2: Back to School

What’s in this issue?
  • Sherry Bie and Jill Carter draw on Indigenous practices in their musing on the act of “midwifing” stories through the re-worlding process of recover, mourning, dreaming, commitment, and action.
  • Makram (Matt) Ayache and Franco Saccucci reflect on the genesis of In Arms Queer Theatre Company (In Arms Theatre Collective) in Edmonton, Alberta.
  • Jenna Rodgers reflects on the challenges of moving from emerging to established artist as a woman of colour in Canada.

The articles featured in 13.2 address the connections
between diversity in education and training and the
professional theatre world […] I hope that these
articles, and the rest of the offerings in this issue, will open up further reflection and discussion about the connection between our training institutions and the landscape of professional theatre in Canada.
