Ghosting of Sumas Lake 

Directed by Dr. Michelle LaFlamme

Watch the upcoming UFV Theatre production, Ghosting of Sumas Lake, directed by Dr. Michelle LaFlamme, UFV Associate Professor in English.

This devised show is based on the student’s experiences of the devastating November 2021 Sumas Prairie floods, exploring the impact of our climate crisis, the stories of community loss and resilience, and how we continue to be ghosted by our experiences on the land, history, and the past.

Performances will be held at the UFV Abbotsford campus Performance Studio on November 30, and December 1, 2, and 3, 2022.

The Laramie Project

Directed by Shelley Liebembuk

March 2023

The Laramie Project is a modern classic. Created by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, this verbatim theatre piece is constructed from the transcripts of over 200 interviews, conducted in the aftermath of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, in Laramie, Wyoming, in 1998. The piece reveals a community grappling with violence, responsibility, and healing; and showcases how theatre can be a brave space for us to engage with this together.

Shelley Liebembuk is an Assistant Professor at UFV Theatre. As an educator, Shelley’s focus is on praxis-based learning and inspiring creative and critical engagement in the studio and the seminar. Shelley’s theatre scholarship is informed by her professional work as an actor and dramaturg. Her current research projects are on contemporary multilingual performance ensembles and remote acting pedagogy.
