Hello Internet;

That’s a wrap!

TNB YOCO is officially off the road. The set is out of the van and the actors catch their flights tomorrow. We ended the tour in Bathurst, NB. So, i’m quite tired from driving.

Hello Internet;

As an artist, I feel as though art should cause conversation. Regardless of whether it ruffles feathers or is simply appreciated.

Today was the last day that TNB Young Company performed Sania the Destroyer. We have had many conversations with our audiences about the subject matter in QA sessions. We talked about bullying, racism, immigration and growing up… and also about how long it takes for the actors to learn their lines. I know the story was discussed in classrooms and at home. Thank you for a great run, and thank you for letting us tour the province.
