Description

The Guelph Wellington Local Immigration Partnership invites you to

A thought-provoking evening of theatre, art, and conversation about immigrants' experiences in Canada.

Join us for a deliciously catered night out and a "night out of context" in a community conversation about immigration experiences, challenges, and issues through professional theatre and an artist's talk, all hosted within the Danby Products Limited warehouse; an industrial context that is integral to the journeys of many new immigrants and refugees to Guelph and Wellington.

YOUR TICKET INCLUDES:

  • "Seasons of Immigration," performed by MT Space Theatre

Set on a bare stage using simple props and costumes, the story is told through physical movement, light-hearted text with live painting and soundscape. The characters explore issues of adaptation, language barriers, racism, loss of parental control, and the need to maintain cultural integrity while struggling with a redefinition of self in a foreign land.

Developed in a workshop process, the Season of Immigration to the West is a collaborative work combining six performers, a director, a text developer, a dramaturge, a musician, a vocalist, a writer, a painter and the generous story-tellers who opened their hearts.

  • "Migrating from Here to There," Presentation by Artist Hiba Abdallah

What does it mean to be welcoming or hospitable? How do terms such as immigration, refugees and xenophobia affect our agency and responsibilities as a community?

Interdisciplinary artist Hiba Abdallah explores these questions through the lens of how we define place. As an artist frequently working in conceptual and text based practices, Abdallah will discuss the connections between civic agency, immigration and making things happen, together.
