We are excited to announce Catch the Keys has been named the 2014/15 Company in Residence at Catalyst Theatre! This incredible opportunity will allow us the opportunity to workshop our newest stage production, Ursa Major.
The development process will include dramaturgy of the the script; intensive creative development of movement, sound and video design; a public reading with talkback; and a public presentation of selected staged scenes.
Ursa Major is inspired by a true story close to the Dart Sisters’ hearts. An emotional tale of the struggle between love and logic, Ursa Major is a physical storytelling of timeless devotion and the strange world that exists between consciousness and unconsciousness.
The Ursa Major process will see the development of contemporary choreography, circus stunting, integrated sound design, and interactive projections to seamlessly travel between raw reality and dreamlike unconsciousness.
Catch the Keys’ driving force is the creation of new work that challenges both artists and the audience. We specialize in creative experimentation. We thrive on the challenge of finding new ways to reinvent audience experience. We are excited at the opportunity to work with Catalyst Theatre to hone our creative process and learn from industry experts. We strongly believe in the important role Catalyst Theatre plays in our community, and are honoured to be the 2014/15 Company in Residence.
Thank you, Catalyst Theatre for your invaluable mentorship! We look forward to an incredible year!
