ASSITEJ TYA Directors’ Exchange

Carousel’s Artistic Director, Monica Dufault, was selected to attend the TYA Directors Exchange in Berlin at the beginning of June 2019. She was thrilled to be the only person representing Canada as one of 30 theatre directors from all over the world. Here’s what she had to say about this unique experience: 

The structure of the Exchange was very open. Each day began with a warmup led by one of the participants. Often these were held in the open air and provided further insight into the working methods of theatre makers around the world.

One memorable part of the workshop time was a session on object theatre, led collaboratively by Choiti Ghosh from India, and Nwabisa Plaatjie from South Africa. They led us through an exploration of paper as an object of theatrical expression, leading to moments of intriguing stage images created by the participants. This approach to the use of objects in theatre was new to me and a fascinating way of working; definitely something I plan to explore further in my own work.

After the Directors in TYA Exchange concluded, I continued my travels, visiting Germany’s largest theatre for young audiences, Theater Junge Generation in Dresden. I also went to the Czech Republic to attend the Prague Quadrennial, an international exhibition of scenic design and performance.

I’m glad to be back in Niagara, working on our plans for next season, but I am inspired by the new ideas and people that I encountered during my time in Europe!
