We’re thrilled to announce that PTD theatre creator Elif Işıközlü has been awarded a Director Development Residency at Canadian Stage for 2015/16 through their RBC Emerging Artist Program. CanStage’s Director Development Program is an opportunity for professional stage directors to explore strategies and approaches to contemporary practice, production, and administration in a national and international context.

 As part of the residency, Elif will be working on her own creation, Anatomy of Wonder. A highly compositional, structural piece, Anatomy of Wonder was recommended by PTD for the OAC’s Theatre Creator Reserve Program in 2014 and has been in pre-development since. Elif, Lisa and cast begin an extended workshop at CanStage in Toronto January 18-31.  Check PTD’s twitter page for updates as we build.
