Troika & The Troubles
Join us for two one-act plays written, performed, directed, and produced by SFU Contemporary Arts Alumni. The event will also feature artwork by installation artists Brendan Albano and Kate Barbaria.
Resounding Scream Theatre, in collaboration with fellow emerging artists, presents an evening of original theatre examining questions of identity, culture, and history as seen from the perspective of 1st and 2nd generation Canadians.
Simultaneously creating original pieces reflecting their respective heritage, both groups decided to join forces to create an intimately personal and engaging double bill.
Weaving together folktales, memoirs, history, and pop culture, Troika tells the story of growing up Ukrainian Canadian in Western Canada. With cast members hailing from the big city of Vancouver, the suburbs of Edmonton, and a small town in Saskatchewan, Troika uses elements of music, movement, and story telling to take a sometimes poignant and sometimes humourous look at what it means to celebrate culture and heritage two generations removed from the motherland. Troika is created and performed by Aliya Griffin, Lauren Kresowaty, and Natalie Schneck. (Photograph by Sean Griffin.)
Resounding Scream Theatre presents The Troubles
Written and Performed by: Stephanie Henderson
Directed by: Catherine Ballachey
"What would they call you? Not your name, loveyour side?"
Based on personal accounts of the conflict in Northern Ireland, The Troubles is a thought-provoking show that draws upon the voices of five distinct characters to explore questions around community, morality, and loyalty. A boundary-pushing story of love and violence, The Troubles speaks that which has been forgotten. (Photograph by Everett Jelley.)
Troika & The Troubles run nightly from August 3rd to August 6th with matinees on August 6th and 7th at Little Mountain Gallery at Main and East 26th.
