Storytelling and Performance Creation: Workshop with Colin Wolf
This workshop is presented as part of the Suncor Indigenous Artist in Residency Program.
About the Workshop-
Join Colin Wolf in a crash course creation workshop. Starting with a group warmup, participants will be led through a series of exercises using writing, movement, sound, and pre-selected source material that will culminate in a first draft of a storytelling based performance.
The workshop will have 2 focuses:
Connecting to Breath, Body, and Voice as a storyteller
Finding stories, Making Stories, Weaving Stories
The balance of movement, stillness, writing, and discussion will result in a basic understanding of the tools, skills, and strategies to engage creatively as a storyteller, writer, or performer.
Please bring in a hard copy of ANY written source material (article, poem, email, text conversation, screenshot, essay, book, etc.) and a full water bottle. You are also encouraged to wear comfortable clothes to move in.

About the Suncor Indigenous Artist Program –
This Summer, we welcome two resident artists, Cat Sivertsen and Colin Wolf, to the Wood Buffalo region.
Much like the Artist in Residency program, this stream follows the traditional residency model and is based on the same idea of creating art and engaging with the community through art. This stream supports an Indigenous artist living in Canada that has an artistic career based on using traditional knowledge, skills and materials to tell their contemporary story.
Stay tuned for announcements as Colin will be showcasing his own art created during his residency nearing the end of July 2022.
