EVEN GILCHRIST

e|vʌn gɪl|krɪst (he/him/his)
 

theatre designer and creator

Hi there! My name is Even. I am a queer, trans theatre creator and designer working and living in amiskwaciy (colonially known as Edmonton). I am also a sort of recent export from Ottawa, located in the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg. 

The bulk of my theatrical experience lies in the development and realization of new work. As a scenographer, my desire for creative processes lives in finding ways in which design is the catalyst of storytelling, rather than reactionary to the script. I believe that theatre lives in collaborative and transformative experiences for everyone.  

 

I am have recently received my MFA in Theatre Design at the University of Alberta. This program trains artists in all visual elements of theatrical production design: set, costume, lighting, and projection.
