2024 Festival

Electric Innovations

Electric Innovations Youth Theatre Program Showcase

Electric Innovations Youth Theatre Program exists in order to recognize the powerful, thoughtful, and undefined magic that exists in young people in and around the Niagara region.

Event Description

The 2024 cohort of Electric Innovators will share a work-in-development presentation of an original creation developed over a 12-week theatre program with Suitcase in Point.

Electric Innovations is a 12-week theatre program for folks between the ages of 14–18. This unique opportunity was created by Suitcase in Point in partnership with the National Theatre School of Canada with support from Brock University's Dramatic Arts Department at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.

This amazing program provides young people with the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the best theatre makers, artists, and professionals from across Turtle Island, and offers a chance for young people to work together to devise a brand new piece of theatre to be shared at Suitcase in Point’s annual In the Soil Arts Festival.

This is a challenging and fun experience that is transferable to real world skills, and an opportunity for youth to learn things about themselves, their artistic practices and the art that they want to put out in the community.
