Artist Talk Series

Kim Blackwell In Conversation With...

Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell is thrilled to launch a new Artist Talk Series, as part of 4th Line’s Emerging Women’s Directing Project, called Kim Blackwell In Conversation With, focusing on Canadian women theatre artists who are pioneers in their field.  4th Line’s Epic Women’s Directing Project was launched in May 2017 to provide female Canadian directors the opportunity to train and work in the company’s unique community-based model and aims to address the issues around gender parity in the performing arts.


The series, which honours the achievements of women in the Canadian theatre landscape, will be live streamed on four Tuesday afternoons in May. The series will open on Tuesday, May 5th with Kim Blackwell In Conversation With Jillian Keiley, an award-winning director from St. John’s, Newfoundland, founder of Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland. Then, on Tuesday, May 12th, the series continues with Judith Thompson, Governor General’s Award-winning playwright, director and theatre educator.  Next, on Tuesday, May 19th, the series continues with Kim Blackwell in Conversation With Nancy Palk, acclaimed actor, director, educator and a founding member and resident artist of Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre Company. Concluding the May Artist Talk series on Tuesday, May 26th is Kim Blackwell In Conversation With Fiona Reid, celebrated, award-winning English-born Canadian television, film, and stage actress.

“Our Artist Talk events have come to be some of the most popular gatherings at 4th Line. For several years now, I have been wanting to sit down with some of Canada’s most influential women theatre artists to delve deeper into their careers and practice, I am thrilled to be sitting down with women whose work I have long admired.”
