An afternoon of theatre performances by Red Threads of Peace acting troupe

Join us for an afternoon of theatre exploring the experiences of newcomers to Canada.

This original theatre production is based on the Playback Theatre method. The Museum invites newcomers and refugees to tell their stories at two different workshops. These stories will be “played back” in a live theatre performance by the Red Threads of Peace acting troupe.

Bonface Beti, whose own story as a refugee is featured in the Level 5 Rights Today gallery, and Brad Leitch, with Red Threads of Peace, lead both workshops and the final performance.
