Theatre, Interdisciplinary Arts, Dance, Film/Video, Poetry


Gerry Trentham’s (he/they) sense of wonder has led him through four decades of creation, performance and teaching involving the disciplines of dance, theatre, poetic writing, film/video and design. His commitment to the art of performance has led to international acclaim, Dora nominations and film awards within his canon of over 40 works and with some of Canada’s most renowned choreographers including Serge Bennathan, Jean-Pierre Perreault, Claudia Moore, and most recently with Denise Fujiwara and Zab Maboungou. With an MFA in Theatre and Graduate Voice Teaching Diploma under the mentorship of the renowned teacher David Smukler, 25 years as faculty in the acclaimed National Voice Intensive (now the Moving Voice Institute), with Denise Fujiwara in their new frontier of Butoh/Voice training and with Diane Roberts in her development of Legacy Voice, he has shared his bold theatre/dance synthesis in major theatre and dance conservatories in Canada and abroad throughout the United States, in London, Buenos Aires, and Queensland, Australia.
His deep relationship with Arrival’s Legacy Project director Diane Roberts extends back decades. He participated in the Arrival’s Legacy Process that changed much of who and how he was, is and will be. He is a contributor to Arrival’s Legacy Voice development and further researches with Diane how the APL process powers performance in their joint work the Art of Peace Project.
