Antidote is hosting an Intergenerational Theatre Workshop: Part 2 with director, actor and theatre teacher Lina de Guevara!
Born in Chile, Lina already had a full theatrical career in 1976 when she moved to Canada. Her personal experience with exile and immigration made her see theatre with new eyes, as an essential instrument for social and personal transformation. In 1988, she founded PUENTE THEATRE in Victoria BC, with the mandate to express through theatre the experiences of immigrants and diverse minorities.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to explore theatre as a form of activism for self-identified multiracial and Indigenous girls and women of all orientations. We are creative, vibrant and strong and by sharing stories we can create powerful ways to resist and challenge racist and sexist violence together.
As a result of the excitement generated in our first workshop, antidote is hoping to create an ongoing theatre group. Come join us and be part of this exciting initiative!
Date: Saturday February 9, 2013
Place: Victoria West Community Centre, 521 Craigflower Road
