A New Open Pit!
Open Pit is sad to announce that Sam Bergmann-Good, one of the co-founders of Open Pit has decided to step down as Co-Artistic Producer. His career has led him outside of the Yukon, and although we will miss his creative input we wish him all the best in the future.
On another note, we would like to announce:
The fabulously talented Geneviève Doyon is our new Co-Artistic Producer!
In June 2011, Geneviève participated inThe Devised Yukon Project, and has been working with Open Pit ever since. When Sam announced that he was going to be stepping down, it was clear that Geneviève would be the perfect candidate for the position. We welcome her with open arms!
Geneviève will be responsible for Open Pit's community outreach, local communication, marketing, and production managment, while Jessica Hickman continues to support Open Pit as the main administrator, finance co-ordinator, and grantwriter. Both Geneviève and Jessica, with support from the board-of-directors, will be in charge of the artistic direction of the company.
This season, Open Pit plans to continue the development of Leave a Message (apres le bip) , bring a guest instructor to the Yukon to offer a vocal training workshop, and host one kick ass fundraiser!
We can't wait to get this year started!
