WELCOME TO THE WAY WE PLAY!

At Plateau Theatre we know that an actor is like an athlete. To reach his goals he must develop his technique and train relentlessly while deeply exploring his character and the reality of his given circumstances. Our discipline: acting. Category: realistic.

 

We support actors interested in the realistic style of acting and have offered them a safe place to practice and push their limits. The creative gym, the showcases, the web-series’ and the theatrical plays which we produced were breeding grounds of transformation in the quality of work done by many actors. After a work session the feeling of satisfaction and well-being is palpable among the participants. This feeling allows them to reconnect with the deep motivation that drives them to further develop as actors: the joy of acting, of surpassing oneself; the joy of doing the work.

 

From its inception, the goal at Intentional Dreams Productions Inc founded in 2006 (IDP) was to have a theatre from which our artists could create and present productions which they identify with, where they could play characters they were drawn to and where they could do so in their own time. The caterpillar spent a long time in its cocoon, but actions are the seed of fate deeds grow into destiny. We now have our own intimate theatre space where members and friends of the company will be presenting cinematic theatre.

 

For 12 years IDP has helped me grow, has allowed me to pursue my artistic development. This company is my anchor and I strongly believe in the benefits it can contribute to an actor’s evolution. That’s why I decided to take the directorial reins and charge into the avenue that has opened before us. While developing the theatre’s image and supporting our actors’ creative development I will do my utmost to put strategies in place that will facilitate theatrical creation in our venue.

 

We are stronger than ever, we are ready for the events to come, and with great impatience we prepare for the unveiling of our upcoming productions…

A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

Intentional Dreaming: To dream awake, to make the invisible visible.

I had a dream; to have a bilingual company where actors could work together and create with other artists who share the same school of thought, a common spirit with a synonymous vision; a place where we could express ourselves freely and completely, in harmony with who we are. Each artist actor being unique, we each possess our own individual artistic expression. We all have our own perception of reality, our own personal interpretation of a character and its world and our own personal creative process.  I wanted a place we could call our own; a place we could call home; a place where we could come to share, work, rehearse, learn and experiment between auditions and other work contracts. It was to be an environment where an artist would have the freedom to try and do things that we rarely have time for or get the opportunity to do at auditions or in production. This would be a place where we could practice,  make mistakes and feel safe about it and learn and grow from them, become more autonomous, increase our self awareness and our trust in our own personal artistic process and expression. It would also be a company that would provide production opportunities to its members, shows where they could put the results of their experiments to the test in front of audiences. In my dream this company would include actors, directors and writers; artists working together to create continued work opportunities  through the constant development of original productions both for stage and for film. We would also work with and produce known plays and classics whenever we felt like it. Welcome to Plateau Theater at Intentional Dreams Productions Inc: a dream come true!
