Welcome to our new Artists!

We would like to introduce our new Artists at Carnegie Centre, Strathcona Community Centre, and the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre!

Please join us in wishing a warm welcome to Amy Shostak, Jeff Gladstone, Veronica Berezowsky, and Mark Beaty. Amy & Jeff, who specialize in improvisation, are collaborating at Carnegie to create Improv Theatre for Older Adults. Veronica is a contemporary dance Artist with years of experience with community engaged arts practice and she’s been working with the group at Strathcona to create Moving Stories: Dance for Older Adults. Mark Beaty continues the work Leah Abramson began with the group at Roundhouse for the Sound & Song project.

We also welcome Catrina Longmuir who is using digital storytelling to help the Strathcona Puppeteers celebrate 13 years of shared art practice.

Strathcona Open House Oct 30th

The Strathcona Pupeteers worked their magic at Heart of the City Festival this fall. The delighted audience of 35 included community members and a young group of theatre-goers from Strathcona Elementary, who were excited to meet (and touch) the puppets after the showing.
