Marshall Vielle

Dramatic arts – performance

When Marshall Vielle is on stage, it is clear: he has found his place in the world. Whether he is directing or preforming, Marshall’s magnet presence and passion for theatre shine.

As a uLethbridge student studying performance, Marshall says being involved in theatre productions as well as being able to work with students from across Canada and around the world in a smaller setting have helped him flourish in his studies.

“One of my favourite uLethbridge memories is the night I presented my directing project to the public,” he recalls. “It was a phenomenal experience as I got to see something very near and dear to my heart on its feet. It was like exposing myself to the world. Vulnerable, but gratifying at the same time.”

Marshall has taken his study of performance internationally to Malawi, Africa, where he had the opportunity to demonstrate global health promotion through the use of theatre.

“I worked in rural communities to help prevent the spread of Malaria and HIV,” he says. “For me this field study was about having a cultural exchange, as well as gaining first-hand experience in facilitation, something I hope to take me with as I venture into using theatre in community development.”

The arts, Marshall says, facilitate social change — something he is particularly excited to be part of.

“As artists, it is our job to create content that helps people see things in a new perspective, to raise awareness and teach empathy. This is done by helping people feel in every sense of the word,” he says. “Theatre, and art in general, can help people understand each other and the world around us in a significant way. Through theatre we can learn what it means to be human.”

Reflecting on his time at uLethbridge, he says:

“For me, theatre is about a group of people coming together to achieve a desired goal. It is about laying foundations of understanding. It is also a part of a greater knowledge sharing paradigm. My appreciation for knowledge sharing stems from my own Blackfoot culture, in which concepts such as storytelling are considered valuable gifts. In this way, I consider each of the teachings I have received from my professors here at the University to be gifts that I will take with me as I embark on my own creative journey.”
