Does the way we tell the story change our understanding of history?
Join the performers of Staging our Histories May 31st at the National Arts Centre to witness seven performances that bring new perspectives to the past and invite the audience to interact with history. Check out Staging Our Histories on the NAC’s website in English and French.
Eight powerful stories told via film, theatre, poetry and oral storytelling will illuminate the past and its impact on the present for one evening in Ottawa. At Staging Our Histories, creative storytelling will bring the origins of a local landmark to life, film and theatre will investigate the memories contained in a grandmother’s home remedies, and poetry will express the lived experience of colonial legacies, among other performances.
And mark your calendars! Tickets for Staging Our Histories are officially on sale at the National Arts Centre’s box office on April 6th at 10 am!
