Workshop: Rainbow of Desire Applied Theatre (Mixed Company Theatre & Scarborough Civic Library)

“What happens when you take apart a single moment of conflict to explore every possible desired action?

In this experiential workshop led by Mixed Company Theatre’s Artistic Director Simon Malbogat, participants will employ Augusto Boal’s Rainbow of Desire techniques to broaden perspectives and reframe situations by focusing on the inner thoughts and impulses of the individual. Through storytelling and performance, artists, educators and community leaders will gain a deeper understanding of their conflicting and co-existing desires, which will enrich their experiences onstage and in social and personal settings.

This workshop is made possible by the Toronto Arts Council’s Artist In The Library Program.

Registration Open: Masks of Manipulation Workshop at Mixed Company Theatre in November


Mixed Company Theatre is excited to announce that, due to popular demand, we are hosting our two-day Masks of Manipulation workshop again in November 2019!

Masks of Manipulation (November 2nd and 9th 2019, 9:30AM-5:30PM)

What happens when you take apart a single moment of conflict to explore every possible desired action?

The “Masks of Manipulation”, an invaluable character development and conflict-resolution process designed by Simon Malbogat, gives face to each of the seven different emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual manipulative forces we encounter both onstage and in daily life.

This workshop draws on Commedia dell’Arte-inspired masks to help participants acquire a deeper awareness of manipulation and oppression: how and why it happens, what it looks and feels like, and how to de-escalate it.

In this two-day workshop, participants will embody and activate their understandings of manipulation, a process which culminates in the creation of each person’s own Mask of Manipulation. Each mask then becomes a physical touchstone in processes ranging from character development to community mediation. This workshop, co-facilitated by Simon Malbogat and Peter Jarvis, is suitable for artists, educators, social workers, and community activators alike.

20% Discount for CAEA Members, and 50% Discount for Students and Arts Workers who identify as under-waged. Bursaries also available upon request! Email communications[at]mixedcompanytheatre.com to register.”

Workshop: EQUITY! Critical Self-Care
APRIL 03, 2019
DANCE STUDIO, THE AL & MALKA GREEN ARTISTS’ HEALTH CENTRE, TORONTO WESTERN HOSPITAL | 4:00 – 6:00PM

WHAT’S THIS GOT TO DO WITH STRESS?

In this workshop, you can expect to:

  • Relate your own experiences as an artist to an equity-informed view of self-care
  • Create a personalized self-care template you can use to develop self-care practices, now and in the future
  • Exchange insight, experiences and stories with other participants (optional)
