The Animikiig Training Program offers Indigenous artists who are in the emerging stage of theatrical creation the chance to develop their craft through practical experience in workshops and creating/writing sessions with established performing arts professionals.
“The aim is to commit to Animikiig writers through the development of their work”.
A maximum of ten creators are chosen to develop their work during the course of Native Earth’s season. The program’s aim is to commit to these creators for a minimum of one year, through the development of their work to a staged reading of their piece during the company’s Weesageechak Festival.
“Professional artists join the group to share their particular approach and skills in play development”.
Invited professional artists join the group to share their particular approach and skills in play development. The group spends time discussing reading and writing material with their peers which have been assigned to them by the program facilitators. Each monthly focus is supported by articles, interviews and videos around the topic of creating new work.
Each Animikiig creator is given the opportunity to meet in private with a dramaturge for an in-depth discussion of their work and the ways in which it can continue to grow.
