The Secret Lives of FemFest Artists!

We asked the wonderful artists involved in FemFest 2014 some fun questions to learn what makes them tick. Here are a few of our favourite responses!


 

If you weren’t working in theatre, what would you love to do?

Alison Mclean, Playwright Skin Deep: Sometimes I think about starting a magazine, using real-sized women as models and focussing on fashion that is inexpensive and edgy. Maybe I’ll write a play about it instead…

Kaitlyn Kriss, Stage Manager for Cabarets and Shorts: I secured a management position at the ripe age of 20 and have worked 3 fringe shows (all in the same festival) while still holding down a job and not losing my mind. When I’m not working I generally can be found playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends from 9pm till 6am

Ksenia Broda-Milian, Designer for the Naked Woman and Launched: I can’t imagine not working in theatre! If I couldn’t design, I’d like to direct and continue to teach and work as a scenic painter. I do have a degree in biology as well so I imagine if I had a non-theatre full-time job, I’d maybe be a geneticist, or studying plants

What was the last book you read?

Grant BurrGrant Burr, Actor in The Naked Woman: I just read Dr. Seuss at bedtime tonight!

What superhero would you be if you could? Or what superpower do you wish you had?

Elizabeth Whitbread, Actor in Shorts: I always love flying in my dreams. Give me some wings!

Taesia Scratch, Actor in Launched: Excellent question. Hulk Smash!

 

Rubena Sinha What do you want audiences to take away after viewing your work?

Rubena Sinha, Playwright and Performer in River: I want them to know that life is painful but it doesn’t have to destroy you. You can always find a way to renourish yourself.
