With Thomas Morgan Jones

Join us this summer for a performance and creation intensive led by incoming Artistic Director Thomas Morgan Jones.



Developed by internationally acclaimed director Tadashi Suzuki and the Suzuki Company of Toga, the Suzuki Method’s seeks to heighten the actors emotional and physical power and their commitment to everyone moment on stage by returning the wholeness of the human body to the theatrical context.  It is a rigorous physical discipline that acts as fundamental training for actors in the use of their bodies, their energy, and their voice.


Originally created by choreographer Mary Overlie as the Six Viewpoints, SITI Company expanded the training and adapted it for actors.  It’s primary focus is on elements of time and space in training that is intuitive, spontaneous, and improvisational.  It helps a company of actors to generate material, gives them tools to repeat and interrogate their work and instincts, and creates ensemble.


Monday August 27th to Saturday September 1st

Monday – Friday, 10AM to 2PM, Saturday 10 AM to 5 PM

FEES: $200



Thomas has worked across Canada and internationally as a director, playwright, dramaturg, instructor, and movement coach.  His productions have received eleven Dora Mavor Moore Awards and eight nominations, he received the 2011 Dora Mavor Moore Guthrie (Stratford Festival), and has been nominated twice for the John Hirsch Award (2008 & 2011) and for the Pauline McGibbon Award.
