End of the West;
A Live Art Building Workshop
August 20 – 27 , 2022
Onsite Workshop

Imagination has been one of the saddest casualties of the 21’st century (along with Opacity, a Sense of Humour, etc…)  It is a collective cultural muscle that has atrophied with the over exercising of Facts,  -which have a very important places in the world at large, of course- but, in the realm of creativity to stop at the Facts is to become a reporter, not an artist.

At Arts Letters and Numbers, End of the West will run a week-long workshop on Live Art Building, taught from each the basis of the three disciplines that you know best.  Together, as a cohort, you will find, embody, and place stories in a created space, to dazzle your -as yet- unknown audience.  You will resuscitate Imagination; giving it CPR by breathing into it Mystery and Wonder about this crazy planet we live on.  You’re going to make stuff, that has never existed before…

“End of the West is a group of artists who met around a backyard fire and came to know each other through the stories we told, and the tales we made up.  As an architect (Dave Thomas) a Bharatanatyam Dancer (Avanash), and a physical-theatre maker (Jacqueline Loewen), each of us brought different arts-languages to speak.  As an Indiginous man, an Indian man, and a settler/Canadian woman, each of us bring different worlds to share.  We connected over tales tall enough to see over the boundaries of our different lives, so we have made work that imagines beyond the boundaries of each of our traditional practices.  Coming together, we’ve created trans-disciplinary Live Art, telling myths with the best tools that Space/Design, Movement/Live performance, and Dramaturgy/Theatre have to offer.”
