New Faces, Upcoming Events, and a Shiny New Website

September 13, 2012

As we launch bravely forward into Neworld’s 2012-2013 season, we welcome new members to our team and say goodbye (for now) to a few company members.  Artistic Producer Adrienne Wong will be taking her parental leave from September to March of 2013 – congratulations Adrienne!  In her absence, Resident Producer Marisa Smith joins us for several exciting projects.  We say goodbye to Naomi Sider, who leaves us to join the Electric Company as Artist in Residence.  We welcome Christine Quintana to our team as our new Operations Coordinator, and Josephine Gray as our Administrative Intern until November 30th.

Though our season begins in November with Winners & Losers at the Richmond Gateway Theatre, September offers three chances to get your Neworld fix.  The Cultch and Elbow Theatre present Nassim Soleimanpour’s provocative and challenging White Rabbit, Red Rabbit Each night an actor is handed a sealed envelope containing the script to the play and, sight unseen, begins.  Join Carmen Aguirre (September 19th) and Artistic Director Marcus Youssef (September 22) as they experience White Rabbit, Red Rabbit for the first time along with their audience.

On September 28th, Marcus will present readings of two of his works at the Historic Joy Kogawa House as part of Word on the Street Vancouver.  Attendees will get an early glimpse into Winners & Losers and How Has My Love Affected You.  For details on this special event, visit the Historic Joy Kogawa House website.  Meanwhile, Resident Producer Marisa Smith will take part in the Shadbolt 7 Series.  Witness one concept through the eyes of seven top-tiered artists from a variety of disciplines and see it come to life, seven different ways, in only seven days – intrigued?  Find details on the Shadbolt Center‘s website, or join Marisa on September 29th to see the final result.

We hope you’ll experience one of these fantastic events before our season begins with Winners & Losers, and that you’ll visit our newly renovated headquarters on the web at
