August 30, 2011 - Performance Creation Canada, CCI and CPAMO partner with MT Space to present Staging Displacement: Producing and Presenting Difference, as part of the intercultural theatre festival IMPACT 11, Kitchener-Waterloo, September 22–25.
This conference will look at displacement as a common ground for Aboriginal and immigrant theatre practitioners in Canada, and for art presenters who are seeking work that speaks to their communities. Displacement as a concept and living experience shapes the way we create, produce, and present theatre, and inspires the stories we want to tell. In collaboration with Performance Creation Canada (PCC), Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO), and Community Cultural Impresarios (CCI), IMPACT 11 will feature four days of panel presentations, discussions, and networking events with artists, producers and presenters from across Canada.
CAPACOA is also collaborating in Staging Displacement: as part of the Value of Presenting study, lead researcher Inga Petri will be chairing sessions on the theme "Building Alliances", on September 23.
