Dog Sees God (Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead)

Featured


Spring at Theatre Inconnu attempts to answer the burning universal question: What will happen to the Peanuts gang as they struggle with teenage angst?  Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead provides the answer. This award-winning play by Bert Royal is an irresistible portrayal of some familiar characters (who bear a striking resemblance to Charles M. Schulz’s iconic kids) entering young adulthood. Whimsy is tempered by the challenges facing today’s youth.

The Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets

Featured

When two such creative geniuses as Waits and Burroughs come together sparks are bound to fly. Waits has composed exquisite numbers, with his characteristic bucking of tradition. Musical styles merge and transform to create a striking backdrop of songs as Burroughs’ haunting wordplay tells a tale (based on a German folktale Der Freischütz) of one man’s sacrifice of integrity to achieve gratification.

Peace Dancer – by Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd

Roy Henry Vickers and cast

For the One Wave Gathering 2019 (in Centennial Square, Victoria, BC, Canada), Theatre Inconnu (https://www.theatreinconnu.com) had the privilege of remounting – in association with the Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (https://pacificpeoplespartnership.org) and Story Theatre (https://storytheatre.ca) – our 2017 production based on Roy Henry Vickers’ and Robert Budd’s book, Peace Dancer. It tells a cautionary Tsimshian flood tale predating Noah and the Ark. This project was spearheaded and over-seen by Theatre Inconnu’s Youth Program Coordinator, Timothy Gosley. The actual personal participation in both the original and remount productions by the author – and acclaimed Tsimshian Nation artist – Roy Henry Vickers made this a truly wonderful experience for all involved. Directors Barbara Poggemiller and Krystal Cook provided the guidance required to inspire some 30 performers in bringing this uplifting story to life. The traditional live drumming and singing added to the magic of the performance. Pacific Peoples’ Partnership Executive Director April Ingham was also instrumental in bringing this 2019 remount project to fruition.

One-Man Hamlet – by Clayton Jevne

This production was conceived, designed, directed and acted by Theatre Inconnu Artistic Director, Clayton Jevne. Between 1991 and 2008 the show toured in 4 countries (UK, Mexico, US, Canada) logging over 600 performances. In 2011 Clayton remounted the show to celebrate the 20th year since its inception. This performance was videoed and we would now like to share this performance with you.
