The Dreamcatchers Hits the Edinburgh Fringe!

Tags: Event
Seventeen students from Earl Haig Secondary School along with Jan Kish and teacher Kirk Davis have collectively created a new play entitled "The Dreamcatchers" which will be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2011. The play was inspired by the 1995 incident at Ipperwash and the G20 riots last year in Toronto - but is entirely fictional.  This tragedy explores politics, spirituality and identity through chorus, dance, meta-theatrics and drama. For more information, please visit: http://www.dreamcatcherstheplay.ca  or the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Dream-Catchers/111008368966087 or the blurb in the Edinburgh Fringe online catalogue: http://www.edfringe.com/whats-on/theatre/dreamcatchers.
