Using mask work and puppetry, Love, Child is the story of Lina and the men and women in her life who influence the woman she is today. Creator/performer Anana Rydvald portrays Lina at four stages of her life along with 7 other distinct characters. Going back two generations, and dealing with themes of motherhood, abandonment, religion and reconciliation, Love, Child addresses how we forgive others so we can move on. Though dealing with serious issues, the characters are zany and playful, with colour and energy transforming the subject matter.

Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal (PWM) and the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD) in partnership with Creative Gros Morne, invite playwrights to submit their application for a 10-day multilingual residency that will welcome applications from across the country.
Unique in Canada, the Gros Morne Playwrights’ Residency will invite 6 playwrights from across Canada to participate in a 10-day playwriting retreat in Norris Point, Newfoundland. It will be headed by two national new play development centres: Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal (PWM) and the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD). These two institutions have been developing new plays for over 50 years and organizing residencies for over twenty years. This partnership would make it possible to welcome playwrights in a co-lingual setting. English language playwrights are asked to apply through PWM and French language playwrights through the CEAD.
A PLACE TO CREATE
The selected playwrights would spend 10 days in April at the Bonne Bay Marine Station, writing, dreaming, sharing and creating exciting new plays for the Canadian and international stage. This residency would create lasting links between theatre artists from across the country and generate discussion around the work being created in Canada. The residency will be hosted by Emma Tibaldo, Artistic Director of PWM and Elizabeth Bourget, Dramaturg at CEAD. The Gros Morne Playwrights’ Residency will include transportation, accommodations, meals, an honorarium and dramaturgical support.
There are few places better equipped to welcome artists for a creative residency than the Bonne Bay Marine Station. It is located in a spectacular setting on Newfoundland’s breath-taking west coast, surrounded by Gros Morne National Park and within the vibrant community of Norris Point. The station is equipped with bedrooms, a kitchen, a small theatre, and places to sit and write. Tailor-made for artistic residencies that inspire new work that can very well change the way we see the world.Read full...
