Bri – Co-Artistic Director
Although starting her career in film, Bri Proke’s approach has been anything but single tracked when it comes to cultural production. With the divisions of performance growing ever more porous, she wades in these waters to produce works that provoke thought and challenge perceptions of the everyday. From being the artistic producer for Blood Pact Theatre, a founding member of The Fool’s Collective (a trans-Canadian group of independent filmmakers), to working for a gamut of theatre organizations and festivals both in Vancouver and Toronto, Bri’s interdisciplinary approach aspires to venture further into the obscure territories of producing, writing and directing. Bri has just finished production on her first feature film Shark Week, which she wrote and directed, and is expected to hit the festival circuit in 2019. Recent producing credits include After Wrestling (Blood Pact/Factory Theatre), The Feminist F*ck It Festival (Storefront Theatre) and Love in Space! (Cat & the Queen).
