About the Play
Crossing into Lullaby revisits the telling of a true-to-life family story of a mysterious undiagnosable childhood sickness, that binds the living to the dead. In a creative exploration of the space between history and myth, creator Dian Marie Bridge combines voice-work and electronic soundscapes to look into the desperation that can come with knowledge of how closely we live with death, and its impacts on the bindings of unspoken fears, attempting to lay them all to rest.
Dian Marie Bridge is an award winning theatre maker, writer, director and creative producer. She is currently the Associate Artistic Director at Luminato Festival Toronto, Artist in Residence at Necessary Angel Theatre. She holds a degree in Theatre Arts and Dramatic Literature from Brock University, and attended the University of Minnesota’s Theatre and Dance program. Two decades of practice has afforded Dian work with arts organizations nationally and internationally.
Dian is the recipient of the inaugural Strombergs Family Realization Fund, through Nightwood Theatre, the Stratford Festival’s Elliott Hayes Guthrie Award for Playwriting, and SummerWorks’ RBC Professional Award. Dian was also a part of the Stratford Festival’s inaugural Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction. Her mentorship experience includes the Paprika Festival, AMY Project, Speak Sudan, B Current’s RaizinArtz, Only One You workshops, and the Boys and Girls Club of Vancouver.
