Boots and Shoes Technician Practicum

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

The Boots and Shoes Practicum program builds the basic skill set required for boots and shoes work in the theatre industry. The program will develop participants’ existing experience, as well as explore new techniques adhering to the theatre industry’s safety and aesthetic standards.

Specific projects will largely be determined by the summer performance programming at Banff Centre. Project work as required by the shows will include soling, repairs, paint, alterations, and leather work.

Participants are encouraged to engage in the broad range of workshops offered by other departments during the practicum program. Exposure to a wide range of perspectives and approaches is essential to the collaborative nature of theatre.

What does the program offer?

Participants will start in the Wardrobe department with the Wardrobe practicums, learning and expanding on foundational sewing skills and wardrobe practices. They will then move on to specific boots and shoes work.

Participants will explore various techniques and materials, and will learn to take measurements and perform shoe fittings, work with leather adhesives and paint, sew leather, draft for footwear alterations and repurposing, check for safety concerns, and perform repairs.

The program will also explore design research, historical research, and production techniques specifically related to footwear.

Who should apply?

A strong creative ability and visual sense are required, as demonstrated through a portfolio or photo summary of past projects. As theatre is a fast-paced, collaborative environment, strong self-motivation, an interest in a range of perspectives, and a desire to explore unfamiliar materials and processes are essential. A willingness and ability to perform highly physical work is essential.

Strong basic hand and machine sewing skills and an ability to visualize both in two and three dimensions are assets. Alternately, basic drafting skills and an ability to manipulate a range of materials outside the wardrobe scope are also assets, as such skills are transferrable. 

Successful applicants will need to bring:

Closed-toe leather work shoes or boots (steel toes are not necessary)

Long-sleeved work shirts and long work pants that can get dirty

Toolkit with any sewing tools and other small tools they have

Laptop (would be an asset)

Dates: May 07 - August 06, 2019

Wigs and Makeup Technician Practicum

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

This is presently the only program in Canada with a hands-on, self-led learning atmosphere where mentor support is provided. Starting with the basics, practicum participants will learn about wig and hair types and the various construction techniques for making wig foundations and facial hair, including the skills of ventilating/knotting. Styling tools and methods for various periods and purposes will be a focus of activity. 

Makeup will play a significant part in participant-led projects, which will also include special effects. Show-based learning will occur as participants meet the practical and design requirements of supporting a production. 

Crossover mediums involving costume, millinery, and props will be explored. Participants will learn how departments like costume, lighting, and sound integrate with the wigs and makeup department to collaborate and build a production.  

What does the program offer?

Practicums will benefit from a one-on-one training introduction to what the current wig and makeup industry requires as a profession. Experience will be gained through working on show-related projects and performances that may include opera, drama, and dance. 

Workshops will be offered within the program, focusing on special effects makeup, lighting, sound, costume, millinery, and how these disciplines interrelate. These workshops will enhance the skills and understanding of the wigs and makeup technician, and will cover what is required to meet the practical and design requirements of a show. Participants will also have the opportunity to culminate their accumulated skills to collaborate on a photo shoot project.

Who should apply?

Ideal applicants will enjoy working with their hands, and have patience and an eye for detail. Visual arts experience is an asset.

Applicants should have a desire to work with people in a collaborative manner, an appreciation for creativity, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. A positive and curious attitude and a tendency toward organization are also helpful.

PROGRAM BASED ON THE FOLLOWING CONCEPT

Time is an enormous phenomenon. While researching the different aspects of it, we found there's research showing that the faster you move the slower you age. Does it mean that you can be so busy in life that you forget to age? Aging as an action. There's also the perspective of forgotten time: "Every time a person dies a library is burned down". The scale of time changes depending on age: when you are younger an hour is a larger percent of your life. Also, we found that the traditional Maya calendar states that time is quickening. We are also interested in the perspective of physics. When Einstein talks about the space-time he states that the past and the future exists just as much as the present. What does it mean that time is space-like? Is it possible for us to understand?

AGING AS AN ACTION is facing this various time-research on an artistic level; because we believe that artistic questions are similar to scientific questions. We hope to find new approaches that could change our perception both in the act of creation and during the act of sharing with an audience. The use of performance art allows us to come closer to the point of a direct experience with our bodies. Performance art includes the time aspect by its nature, and with its ephemeral gesture it leads inevitably to knowledge about time. We use the body as a measure instrument. We explore how the body and the space are influencing each other. The relation between them could be understood as time - time in art as a consequence and a condition of a body in a space. Time allows us to move, to let the relationship develop. Thus for us the body is an essential instrument to investigate time. The intensive use of space within the work with the body will offer a relation to the context, and through this, a cultural aspect. What creates the specificity of a space and how can we use it for articulating something?
