News from Public Energy Performing Arts:
Public Energy Performing Arts is pleased to announce that Eryn Lidster has recently joined our staff as an Artistic and Technical Production Intern through the Metcalf Foundation’s Performing Arts Internship Program.
Lidster is an emerging producer and technical designer, and a proud member of Peterborough’s artistic community. Since first operating tech for a production in 2015, Lidster has been involved in the production of over 30 theatrical projects. Her works, Invisible and Rejoinder, premiered at Peterborough’s Precarious and Precarious2 ArtsWORK Festivals in 2016 and 2019 respectively; Lidster developed Rejoinder as a participant of Theatre Ontario’s Professional Theatre Training Program. Lidster’s work focuses on originating performance from a technical perspective within a collaborative process. She recently graduated from Trent University, receiving an Honors BA in Cultural Studies with a Specialization in Image, Sound and Performance. In pursuit of this degree, Lidster has expanded her artistic practice to new media, including work in experimental film for which she was twice awarded Trent University’s Gregory R. Frith Memorial Prize and shortlisted for acceptance into the Toronto International Film Festival’s Wavelengths Program in 2018.
Eryn is very excited to have the opportunity to develop as an artist, technician and administrator in this role, and is exceedingly happy to support the work of Public Energy and the many artists involved in the amazing programming to come over the next year.
