Wintertime is coming, and for the students in Company C, that doesn't just mean the season.
No need for long johns when things heat up at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Oak Bay. The third-year students of Company C tackle Charles L. Mee's Wintertime.
"It's going to be a challenging, and inventive process for me and the students as Mee's work encourages thinking outside the box, broad interpretation, abstract design, physical theatre, and dance," says director Sara-Jeanne Hosie.
She enjoyed weaving new characters into the show, with an ensemble acting as a sort of Greek Chorus. The ensemble provides support to the story through movement, speech, and Hosie's original music.
"I loved the idea that I could sit down with a script and find where the music lived in it, where the chorus would make their presence known," Hosie said.
