Description

The Tuckamore Festival presents:

What Was Needed Most: World Premiere Performance

Performed by Juno award-winning Duo Concertante (Nancy Dahn, violin; Timothy Steeves, piano), emerging cellist Amy Collyer-Holmes, and celebrated playwright Robert Chafe, What Was Needed Most is a unique musical and dramatic piece that celebrates Newfoundlanders and Labradorians in Canada and reflects the voices, hopes, dreams, music, and stories of its communities.

Writer/actor Robert Chafe (Artistic Fraud) has explored the rugged beauty of our province, gathering original tales from a variety of individuals and weaving an intimate depiction of life in pre-confederation Newfoundland and Labrador. New music has been commissioned from three alumni of the Tuckamore Festival, Duane Andrews, Bekah Simms, and Aiden Hartery. Their music, inspired by the rich traditions of their home, illuminates the subtext of Chafe’s intimate writing, accompanying the audience on their journey through time and place, as they bring to light What Was Needed Most.

Tuckamore Travels will bring What Was Needed Most to regions previously visited by Robert Chafe, giving audiences the unique opportunity to experience a performance they helped create. Following performances, audience members will be invited to share their reflections on the impact of the piece.

Directions from St. John's:

Take route 10 south to Cape Broyle. Shortly after passing the town limit, look for the sign for Admiral's Cove (just before the Home Hardware). Turn left. The church is just after 3km, on your left.

* Please note, unfortunately the Old Church is not wheelchair accessible.

The Tuckamore Festival graciously acknowledges the support of our funders, Provincial Airlines and Canada 150. Nous reconnaissons l'appui financier du gouvernement du Canada.
