Staging Our Histories presents New Histories/Old Roots
(Livery Theatre, 35 South St., Goderich)
Staging Our Histories is a non-profit initiative that shares underrepresented or unheard histories through live performance. It would be much appreciated if you could share our exciting upcoming event in Goderich, featuring local & visiting artists, with your organization's membership:
A night of history off the page & live on stage. Hosted by David Yates.
Artists with diverse points-of-view bring history home, for four intimate & powerful performances looking at 'histories of home': from a Huron County soldier's experiences in the First World War told through letters to his sweetheart in Whitechurch, to
the drumming and singing of women from different Nations, paths and ages, a granddaughter's act of remembering in India, and the voices of Holocaust survivors.
Includes audience talk-backs moderated by local historian David Yates. Co-directed by Arpita Bajpeyi & Sinead Cox.
Get your tickets online now via Eventbrite, at the Livery office during open hours, or from the co-directors (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
