    Axis-Z Media Arts (AZMA) is a Calgary-based artistic collective interested in creating genre-blurring digital art experiences that step outside the confines of the rectangular screen and into the real world. Their work combines elements of projection mapping, interactive installation, animation, and sound with a focus on artistic detail, technical execution and audience inclusion.

    They bring together media artists, musicians, designers, and technical specialists from their home countries of Canada and Colombia to work on engaging projects that are fun to create and even more fun to experience. Their work has been presented at Mutek Montreal, The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg, the Calgary GLOW Festival, Canada Day at the Forks Winnipeg, and on stage with Alberta Theatre Projects and Ghost River Theatre.

    Founding members Laura Anzola and Matthew Waddell have taught courses in audiovisual technology at the National Theatre School of Canada, as well as at numerous workshops in Calgary, Montreal, Winnipeg and Bogota, Colombia. Locally their work was recently featured in Ghost River Theatre’s Tomorrow’s Child, One Trunk Theatre’s Red Earth, and sound design for Theatre Projects Manitoba’s Mary’s Wedding. Matthew previously taught the Intro to Multi-Media Design Intensive here in 2017.

    REQUIREMENTS:

    • Basic Mac computer skills highly recommended. Experience using a computer for multi-media playback (audio, video) or creation is an asset.
    • Participants are encouraged to bring their own Mac OS laptop or desktop computers to follow along with the demonstrations. We will be using Qlab 4 extensively but Qlab 3 will also work if you are unable to install version 4. Please have the software installed and ready to use when you arrive. You may also benefit from an external mouse, extra monitor and projector.
    • This workshop is intended to explore video projection using Qlab and although we will cover the fundamentals of content creation, we will not have time to cover specific software such as iMovie, After Effects or Final Cut.

  • ICYMI Season Launch Recap

    Thanks to everyone who came out to our season launch! It was a fantastic night of mingling with the community, sneak peaking at the season ahead, and great music.

    RobYn Slade and Ryan Miller had the crowd roaring with their reading of Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliette) by the incredible Ann-Marie McDonald.

    And it was exciting to catch a glimpse of Rick Chafe’s new work while it’s still in it’s work-shopping stage. Time travel, relationships, and the ‘next five moments’ of our lives – we can’t wait to see how this creative new work unfolds over the next few months!

    And we were delighted to have Daniel Péloquin-Hopfner of Red Moon Road, who was part of Chautauqua Tour last year, return to serenade us with his vocal stylings and banjo playing.

    The evening capped off with the first episode of an onstage podcast co-created by Walk&Talk Theatre Company and Fill the (W)hole Theatre Company! More episodes to come as these two creative companies host our 2019/2020 Salon Series.

    Overall a great night!


    Don’t forget: Theatre Projects will hold our Annual General Meeting next Tuesday…and you’re invited!

    Tuesday October 29th, 6:00 pm
    @ Creative Manitoba
    ​300 – 245 McDermot Ave
