Reckless Daughter participated in the Calgary Regional One Act Play Festival this past weekend and debuted a collective creation entitled Yūgen. We were ecstatic to put something up as a collaborative for the first time! The process of creating Yūgen was so exciting and a great learning experience for everyone involved. So seeing it onstage for the first time at the Pumphouse was really wonderful. Cassandra, Ashley, and Danielle gave it their all. And I must say; it paid off! Yūgen took home awards for Outstanding Production, Outstanding New Script, and Outstanding Director! Reckless Daughter will be moving on to the Provincial One Acts Festival in Fort McMurray in May! It's all very exciting, so we will keep you posted!
Yugen is well underway in the creation process! We have some great content that we are really excited to share with you! The schedule has been assigned and Yugen will be playing on Friday, March 23rd, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Victor Mitchell theatre at the Pumphouse here in Calgary! Don't miss out! We are really proud of our work so far and have some stories that need to be told. Danielle, Cassandra, and Ashley are all working very hard and coming together to create something important and original with Madeleine. Come along for our journey and see where Yugen might take us!
Yugen is cast! Brainstorming for content will begin shortly and we can't wait to get started! We are ecstatic to welcome Danielle Martens and Cassandra Watson to the cast of Yugen, as well as our own Ashley Humphries! The show goes up between March 21st and 24th at the ADFA Calgary Regional One Acts Festival at the Pumphouse. Don't miss out! The show is an original creation about a woman and her relationship to herself versus her relationship to other people. It explores love, authenticity, and self-consciousness. Directed by Madeleine Taylor-Gregg, Yugen is a piece that invests in the human experiences of women and their battle of self-acceptance. Keep checking back for more info! We're very excited to get rolling on this project.
Here we are! Reckless Daughter is slowly getting on her feet! This is a very exciting time, and the team is ready to roll. It's been a bit of a whirlwind trying to figure things out, but we are here and we are doing art! So that's what matters. We've recently heard that our creation show Yugen has been accepted into the Calgary One Acts! We've got some time to experiment and explore before showtime so we are stoked to begin our process! Hopefully we'll have some pictures to post once rehearsals are up and running.
Ashley and Madeleine are hard at work up in Calgary, putting things together for Yugen and Zoë and Keanna are working on a show through TheatreXtra at the University of Lehtbridge entitled Bras in the Bathroom featuring an all-female cast! We may be in two different cities but we are all getting shows up and running!
We've got lots of ideas percolating and are so happy to be here as Reckless Daughter. Stay tuned for more info on our upcoming shows! Let's have some fun, represent some emerging ladies, and make some art!
