Jhuntue D. Grey
Jhuntue is one of the co-founders of Void Room Theartics. He originally fell in love with theatre after having to choose between detention or auditioning for his elementary school’s production of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy. Since then, Jhuntue has studied theatre through high school and postsecondary, performed with community theatres in Brampton and Georgetown, and has begun to explore stage production. Jhuntue met Wilex through his post-secondary studies. After leaving college, they began to discuss and ultimately decided to open Void Room Theatrics–where they strive to produce art and hope to one day affect the community in a positive light. Jhuntue would not be able to continue this adventure without the constant support of his parents and close friends.
This Production company began as a class project. At the time, the goal was to attain a passing grade. As time moved on, the ideals we had set in the project resonated with us far more than we anticipated; this lead us to the pursuit of individuals hoping carve out a place for themselves to explore their craft.
The original concept was to use the skills of our friends and families as a foundation: entrepreneurial-ism, music, visual art, theater, musical theater, cooking, and event management. It seemed only natural to start out as a production company, as this would allow us to explore all avenues of our interests.
What we hope to achieve is a place that brings people together. We want our community to enjoy theater with us, to dine with us, and to celebrate with us. We want our artists to be able to spread their wings, to be bold, and to learn with us. We want to create a place where it is okay to fall and fail because failure is only a part of the process. If you’re allowed to fail, it enables you to pile the lessons up until you can walk right over an obstacle. We want people to feel safe failing, so that they may have the space and mindset to concur their evils. If you can’t tell how close the wall is or when it meets the ground, the freedom to express your creativity is endless. The possibilities are limitless. Hence, we are Void Room.
