For two nights only, MISCELLANEOUS Productions, presents their 2018/19 new work, Away with Home at The Scotiabank Dance Centre’s Faris Family Studio Theatre.
MISCELLANEOUS Productions is a hip hop theatre boot camp for youth from the community which presents an original theatrical work every two years, tours internationally, as well as giving free peer-run workshops for at-risk youth, and making films about their works.
What do home, identity, and belonging mean to you? With those three questions in mind, Away with Home director Elaine Carol began rehearsals, working with youth to draw from their own personal experiences, and together they have created a new work that explores issues of immigration, racism, mental health, bullying, maturation, family, victimization, identity and belonging.
Featuring five youth ranging in age from 14-21, AWAY with HOME combines contemporary and hip hop dance, neo-soul and hip hop music, Taiko drumming, image theatre, performance art and performance poetry together to examine the thematic questions.Watch these youth bravely share their own voice and personal experiences of what home, identity and belonging means to them as MISCELLANEOUS Productions presents Away with Home, September 27 or 28, 2019 (two shows only) at Scotiabank Dance Centre.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door and go on sale Monday, August 26 at brownpapertickets.com.
