Sponsored by Kokoro Dance Theatre Society/KW Studios, presented as part of the Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival. 

Unsettled is an intergenerational multi-arts theatre project created with and performed by community artists who live with and experience disability(s).

The presentational style blends poetry, narrative, song, stylized gesture, movement, live drumming and incorporates ASL interpretation. 

Join us for a workshop presentation of this theatrical work in progress. We want your feedback. Following the presentation will be a panel discussion with the artists/creators, and community members around disability and access in theatre. Guest panelists include Susanna Uchatius from Theatre Terrific and Terreanne Derrick, Gitxsan filmmaker.

ASL interpretation provided.
