Tottering Biped Theatre – $8,000 (Larger Grant)
Canadian WW1/Journey Project
This grant will mount an original WW1 Canadian experience inspired theatre piece. Their goal is to inspire our community with the awareness of our involvement in this increasingly forgotten war. By telling a story – one that focusses on the spiritual aftermath of the event – they hope to stir sincere connections to the myriad of experiences known through the war. Theatre builds communities intrinsically; by gathering live people we experience the onstage events in sympathy with others. They are also encouraging a deeper look at history as this marks the 100-year anniversary of WW1 and Canada’s coming of age. By considering the sacrifices and victories that Canada experienced, we gain a deep perspective into the full scope of Canadian history. TBT is a resident company of the Burlington Performing Arts Centre and will work cooperatively towards this event.
