A Show for Hope
A Show for Hope is a 15 minute play by twenty Syrian Refugee Youth about their incredible voyage to Canada. With the help of Raed Aljamous, Heather Morrison and Donovan Scheirer, the youth have created a performance that illustrates their journey from despair to hopefulness. It is a show for understanding, for togetherness, for love, and most of all, for hope.
A Show for Hope will be performed at various festivals around Saskatoon during the summer and fall of 2017.
Thank you to the City of Saskatoon's Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Committee for their support.
From September 2015 - May 2017 we were the Nutana Community Association's Artists in Residence.
Here is a look at all we accomplished, together.
We interviewed ONE HUNDRED stakeholders in Nutana about what they'd like to see in their community. We shared these thoughts with the community in the form of song, poetry and verbatim plays at an event called Nutana Talks and community members voted on their favourite ideas. The art and community building events we created during our residency were a direct result of these conversations and votes. We helped found the Nutana Winterludes Festival, a fun, interactive winter-time festival featuring Theatre on the Rink. Other projects included Gramma Drama (a free drama class for kids and seniors), Playwright in a Shop (real time playwriting in Broadway Avenue storefronts), the Pop Up plays (written during Playwright in a Shop), and a yoga/drama block party.
