How Insightful: A recap of this summer's Insight Theatre training

By Luna Allison, Insight Theatre Coordinator 

The month of July has just flown by! The new Insight troupe has been busy learning the million and one things that they’ll need to know in order to educate youth in the Ottawa area about sexual health throughout the 2013-2014 school year. Aka our summer training! Summer training is an intensive three-week process during which troupe members have explored topics like ableism and sexuality, STIs, contraception, pregnancy options, homophobia &transphobia, anti-racism and healthy relationships. This year’s troupe is a great mix of genders,ages and backgrounds, and we’ve got a concept for this year’s show that willknock your socks off! Keep your eye on the PPO newsletter for info about ourupcoming Insight launch, which is at the main branch of the Ottawa PublicLibrary on Thursday, September 19th! In the meantime, we’re headinginto the rehearsal process to turn all that new knowledge into funny, relatableskits that youth will laugh at and learn from. Wish us luck with the creationprocess
