Yours, Mine, and Ours: Much Ado About Something (When Storytelling and Copyright Collide) 
Tuesday, May 28, 2019
SFU Woodward’s Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre (149 West Hastings St, Vancouver)
$10 admission (subsidy available; request by email). FREE to Making A Scene conference delegates (registration required).


This special evening presentation features theatre artists Erin Pike and James Long (Theatre Replacement), both of whom experienced the complexities of navigating art, copyright and the threat of legal action. Pike created a one-person show, That’swhatshesaid, using only the female dialogue and stage directions from some of the most produced plays of the 2014-15 season. After finding a collection of photo albums in East Vancouver, Long’s Clark and I Somewhere in Connecticut explores the dilemmas inherent in the appreciation and use of other people’s memories. Pike and Long, joined with Martha Rans (Legal Director of the Artists’ Legal Outreach) will open up a conversation about the legal and ethical considerations facing artists.

Space is limited: click here to register now.

Presented in partnership with the GVPTA (Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance) as part of the 2019 Making A Scene theatre conference; co-hosted by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs.
