Festival of
New Works

Join us for a provocative and engaging showcase of new artistic works from a variety of disciplines including music, dance, and theatre.

The festival offers our Year II Performing Arts Diploma and Certificate Students an opportunity to create, direct, and/or develop a piece from an idea into a staged performance. Students apply for this extra-curricular with a written project proposal. Students may choose to create a new work in playwriting, directing, choreography, musical theatre direction, choral direction, physical theatre, or work as an apprentice in stage or production management. Each student is paired with a faculty member to guide them through their artistic project, from preparation to incubation to the final presentation.

The focus of these projects is process and development of new creative ideas, new artistic work, or exposure to new roles. The goal is to give students the time, environment, cast, and guidance to create and develop skills in their areas of artistic interest, and for the College to support the development of new Canadian work. It’s a unique opportunity for students to take a leadership role in their field, add their voices to the Canadian canon, and to enable their peers to do the same.

Admission is by donation and seating is limited. No reservations. We encourage you to arrive early to ensure your spot.
