Storytelling Our Lives

Posted by admin on Sep 10th, 2008

As part of a colloboration between No One Is Illegal and neworldtheatre, ‘Storytelling Our Lives: Stories of Displacement and Migration’ is an exciting new theatre production that involves 5 young people of colour sharing their personal stories of immigration and displacement. Join us for one of the three free community performances:

Sunday, September 14, 2008. 2:30pm – 3:30pm sharp @ Chapel Arts 304 Dunlevy Avenue (corner East Cordova, 2 blocks East of Main)

Sunday, September 21, 2008. 2:30pm – 3:30pm sharp @ Chapel Arts 304 Dunlevy Avenue (corner East Cordova, 2 blocks East of Main)

Monday, September 29, 2008. 8 – 9 pm sharp. Room 1800, SFU Harbour Centre. 515 W Hastings

These performances are a culmination of a series of workshops as part of a collaboration by No One is Illegal and neworldtheatre. The project and performances hope to jointly contribute to bridging the gap between art and activism by bringing into focus the individual faces and unique stories of those who have gone through the migration process. This project also draws upon the deeply rooted and central role of culture, creative expression, and storytelling as key components of resistance movements by providing a connection between personal narratives and global understandings.
