Forest Stories, In person performance and gathering

March 31 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

May 7th 10am – 1pm
In person performance and gathering

Presented in partnership with The Rose Theatre, Brampton and Broadening Horizons, Forest Stories is funded by the Ontario Arts Council, and  is part of Jumblies’ larger project — blue skies, red earth and tall pines. A project that connects us to ourselves using the open skies, the land and the trees as our physical, metaphysical and emotional borders. 

These stories are everywhere. They are in the forests, of course, but also along the city’s streets, in our yards, in pots on balconies; they are in our family stories, our memories, and in seeds we have yet to plant. Along with interdisciplinary artist,  Lisa Hirmer, I will be  facilitating a series of workshops and walks that explore human relationships with trees across different spans of time and place. Through creative exercises, participants will gather and compose their forest stories, creating writing and other works for themselves and their families  including forest walks with Elder Cat Criger and tree scientist Ze’ev Geladof. There will also be a celebratory performance that will wrap up the project.
