Kinship II is a project in Lunenburg/Queens for people 18-30 years of age to enhance their knowledge, understanding and respect for diversity of secular and spiritual views. The group has had sessions in Bridgewater with speakers representing a variety of cultural backgrounds and has traveled to various places of worship in the Halifax area.
We are working as a group to write a play on pluralism called Where Ya From? Beyond Tolerance where we explore diversity through scenes, sketch comedy and song.The performances will combine live theatre with pre-recorded video interviews with people from different traditions. We begin school touring in May for Grades 5-8.
I am grateful to be dramaturge, composer and director with these creative young people. The first song composed for the show is Refugee
