Emerging artists come together for The 48-Hour Crock Pot

Friday, March 16, 2018 8:34 PM | GVPTA (Administrator)

We're pleased to announce that Rumble's Student AmbassadorsShanae Sodhi (Studio 58 at Langara College) and Olivia Lang (University of British Columbia), are reviving The 48-Hour Crock Pot to engage a whole new cohort of emerging artists. The first iteration took place in 2014 and was produced by that year's Student Ambassadors Karina Darychuk and Naomi Vogt. It was an amazing event that resulted in a wonderful new devised work and provided a much-needed opportunity to have young artists from different training institutions work and interact with one another.

Here's the premise: The 48-Hour Crock Pot brings together students from different theatre schools around the Lower Mainland and challenges them to create a piece together. They’ll have only 48 hours (!) to devise “something meaningful” — with the help of a few prompts. This resulting work will be presented on Monday, March 26 at 7pm, in the PL1422 studio. Please join us to see what these fearless young artists cook up!
