The First Movement: How We Forgot Here
My pal Marika Schwandt, who I met through Nightwood Theatre’s Write From The Hip program, let me know about a production she’s involved in that sounds fantastic. Bonus? Our fabulous Shameless art director Sheila Sampath did some design work for them. Check it out:
The First Movement: How We Forgot Here Aug 14-16, 8 pm and Aug 17, 3 pm @ Walnut Studio Loft 83 Walnut St. (south of King, west of Bathurst) We regret that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
Tickets $10-20 sliding scale in advance, or $20 at the door an hour before show time (if still available). Only 50 tickets available for each date! Advance tickets available at Toronto Women’s Bookstore (73 Harbord St.)
Whose stories move the city? Whose movements are remembered? How do you move?
What happens when power and control switch hands? Starting August 14, The Movement Project invites you to board Ojibway Airlines. While on board, you will be immersed in pulsating multi-artistic memories - a series of arresting multi-media stories that reveal the depths of migration and settlement in Toronto. Using visual projections, film, theatre, live electronic music, spoken word poetry, audience participation and taiko drumming, numerous encounters will be presented that reveal knowledge and voices from the land that are lost in the city hustle.
With special guest artists: Rosina Kazi & Nicholas Murray (LAL), Eva Rose Tabobondung, and Ryan Symington.
