Shumiatcher Sandbox Series

Feb 9, 2017 – Feb 18, 2017

Mary escapes the Great Irish Famine in 1847, Sofia flees war-torn Germany in 1947 and Dara bolts from Afghan Taliban rule in 2007. Canada is their new home, but relocation carries with it the struggles and pains of adapting to unfamiliar customs. Through sensuous movement, text and music, Displaced interweaves the stories of these three immigrant women.  

Nominated for “Best English Production” – Montreal Fringe Festival. 5 Stars – Saskatoon StarPhoenix.
