Inciting intersectionality and intercultural theatre in Vancouver and beyond.

Drop-in Policy

For week-day evening classes only, April 9-13, 7:00pm - 9:30pm, with David Smukler

On a first-come, first-served basis, provided there is space available, we will accept drop-ins at $80 per class.

You may request a spot up to 24 hours in advance by texting 604.818.8805 with your name, email address, and the class date. A text response will confirm whether there is space for you or not.

Drop-in class fees accepted in cash at the studio (open a half-hour before class start), or by INTERAC e-Transfer. Contact us for e-Transfer details.

  1. All classes take place at The Post at 750, which is part of the CBC complex at 750 Hamilton Street, in either the Startup Studio or East Studio. The studio will be open at 6:30pm for individual warm-up. Sessions will begin at 7pm sharp!

  2. PLEASE NOTE: 750 Hamilton is not at street level. The easiest way to find it is to get yourself to Hamilton Street between Robson and Georgia. Mid-block, with the Library behind you, you will be looking at a JJ Bean coffee kiosk. To the right of that, you will see a set of concrete steps leading up. Follow those to "750" and dial 110 on the entryphone to be admitted to The Post at 750. Those with mobility issues are encouraged to use the elevator in the atrium of the CBC Broadcast Centre at 700 Hamilton Street, then go past the Security desk to the breezeway. 750 will be on your left when you exit the doors at Security.

  3. The Post at 750 is easily accessible by transit. For those with cars, the underground parking garage for the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library is right across the street.

  4. WORKSHOP PREP: please have 10-20 lines of text memorized for use during exercises. David's specialty is classical text, so anything from Shakespeare's canon (including sonnets) would be fine; however, if you're working on a contemporary piece, by all means, bring that in. Some people like to have two pieces prepared in order to challenge themselves in different ways (and you have a ready alternative if someone else brings in the same piece!)

  5. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Layers are best, as the studio temperature is sometimes unpredictable. Bring lots of water; the voice works much better when hydrated. You may wish to bring a yoga mat or towel, as there can be a lot of lying on the floor!
