IISD-ELA welcomes Walk&Talk Theatre Company as Artists-in-Residence

Walk&Talk are known for their aesthetic of blending musical and physical theatre in imaginative landscapes. The founding team—Duncan Cox, Ben Townsley, and Tanner Manson—collaborate with each other and other music theatre artists to bring this work to life, exploring and experimenting with form and process.

They have worked with One Trunk Theatre in co-producing the podcast radio play Blink which was safely performed live to a small audience in the autumn of 2020. They are also company-in-residence at Theatre Projects Manitoba, where they have been developing a new show inspired by the trio’s time at the IISD Experimental Lakes Area.
