Supporting artists of all abilities in the rigorous creation of provocative theatre
Theatre Terrific brings together artists who would normally never work together. Our diverse ensembles include professional and emerging artists with or without developmental, physical, or mental health issues, gender or language challenges.
THEATRE TERRIFIC ON THE RISE!
Over the past five months, Theatre Terrific's new Board of Directors and Artistic Director have worked to restructure the company and re-evaluate it's purpose and vision. After much discussion, debate and financial planning, supported by Vantage Point, Theatre Terrific is happy to open it's doors to the future.
Theatre Terrific opens its doors with the Spring movement class:
Free your imagination!
Free your body!
This class will draw from improvisation, contemporary dance, theatre games, music and voice.
It offers a creative environment that balances creative fun with creative work.
You will be guided through exercises and activities to develop your own personal movement language.
You will learn how to move with other bodies.
You will explore space, time, music, the senses and your relationship to movement.
You will collaborate to create dances that speak with humanity’s diversity of expression.
