We're in the process of developing the Sharing Our Stories, Telling Our Lives project, created by Deborah Forde and coordinated by Sheron Edey, with Quin Green taking on outreach and animation this summer. This participatory community theatre project is interested in using storytelling, theatre, and oral history concepts to support the resilience of Montreal’s Black community and descendants of broader immigrant populations. This starts with conducting workshops in Image and Forum Theatre with community groups around Montreal, and mentoring a group of teens in interviewing and video-archiving their community in Little Burgundy.
Honour is a story of a girl child in a brothel, which reveals the truth of millions of sex trafficked-girls across the world. Honour is a multiple award winner including Best actress, Best Solo including Nirbhaya Award for showcasing women’s issues through Art.
HONOUR: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan is an attempt to break stereotypes. It is a piece that operates on many levels: music, dance and storytelling, in order to engage the viewer on a very visceral level. It connects the hearts of the characters to those of the audiences watching their story. For these 75 minutes we are one community, viewers and brothel dwellers, connected through our shared humanity.
