SUMMER NEWS:Jumblies activities at The Ground Floor slow down for Jumblies, as our staff and artists take holidays and work and visit other places. However, The Ground Floor will be animated by colleagues and partners, including the AMY Project. Our choir will shift out to Etobicoke and MABELLEarts for the summer.
Meanwhile during the summer: Ruth is visiting the UK to take part in Oral History conferences in Glasgow and Belfast. Ange is on a European tour with her band, Yamantaka Sonic Titan, and, will be taking Talking Treaties to Black Creek Pioneer Village in August. Marianne and Jamie will be taking part in the Sol Express production of Birds Make Me Think of Freedom, playing at the Toronto Fringe from July 6 to 15. Ashley will be joining the AMY Project team, as well as Jackie Omstead’s Grand Valley Institute Theatre Project. Adrienne will be working on video projects and Jumblies archives. Ruth and others will be delivering some workshops at Sanctuary, and once again joining our friends at AlgomaTrad and Thinking Rock in August. Sam will be keeping the office alive when not on holidays.
Then we’ll all be back in September to work on our remount of Talking Treaties, to be performed at Historic Fort York from Oct. 4 to 7, and then to launch some new creative adventures.
