There are still some spaces left for a couple of workshops at PWI 2011.
"If Words Be Made of Breath" with Jane McFarlane. I've had the opportunity to work with Jane as a vocal and accent coach and she's the bomb. There is no one better in Calgary when it comes to voice work. This is a great introductory course for the actor in all of us or a great refresher for those working actors. It never hurts to tune your instrument (and if it does, Jane will tell you what you're doing wrong)!!
"From The Ground Up" with Anita Miotti. I've also had the opportunity to work with Anita as a movement coach/choreographer and I'd use the word "genius" to describe her, which would make her blush. This is a great introductory course for the actor, director, dancer as well as a great refresher for those of us who are movement challenged. Anita will be the choreographic mind behind the dance/movement for Theatre Calgary's production of "Enron" by Lucy Prebble in the new year working with Antoni Cimolino from the Stratford Festival.
"Working from Within" with Joe Norman-Shaw. I've worked with Joe as well and can tell you that there isn't a better authority on acting (for both the stage and film). Joe is an accomplished actor and instructor and teaches and directs for Calgary's very successful acting studio, Company of Rogues. This is a great introductory course for actors and directors as well as for those professionals who are looking to add some new tools to their old toolbox.
If you don't know anything about PlayWorks INK and our line up...you either need to crawl out from under your rock, or get off of dial-up internet service...you can check out the Theatre Alberta website (www.theatrealberta.com).

Cheers and I look forward to seeing you there.
