stories from the end as told by the resident of the terminal hotel.
Guest directed by Ker Wells, a co-founder of Winnipeg’s Primus Theatre, a company founded in 1989 under the direction of Richard Fowler. The foundation of Primus’ method was the actors’ daily physical and vocal training, which lead to the development of a maximized “extra-daily” presence for the performer, and the use of the actor’s body and imagination as the source for performance creation. In the course of two months of intense collaboration, Wells and the members of Boca del Lupo employed and adapted these methods and combined them with the company’s own skills and strengths in the creation of Terminal.
Performed at the Roundhouse Community Centre, the company also offered free theatre workshops for community centre members which involved learning theatre skills such as mask-making, story telling, singing, and improvisation.
Terminal was produced with the support of the B.C. Persons with AIDS Society (now Positive Living BC) and partial proceeds of ticket sales were donated to the organization.
