Call and Response: An Intergenerational Queer Performance
This showcase features work produced in an innovative intergenerational activist arts project, Call & Response. Queer youth and queer elders have been exchanging writing prompts, work, and critique for the last four months. Now, they’re reading to share their work with you, and the results promise to amaze and inspire!
There will be two performances, one in Surrey and on in Vancouver.
The show was performed in February 2015 in Surrey and Vancouver. It is being remounted as part of New Westminster Pride in Summer 2015. Details to follow!
