Yes, it’s true! Multicultural Theatre Space (MT Space) is a local theatre company, and I am very excited to share with you a bit of their coming International Theatre Festival: IMPACT 21, adapted for COVID times… with an amazing combination of shows in-person (mostly outdoors) and virtually.
I have my pass already! The festival goes from September 28th to October 9th, and I can’t wait!
Inspired by the description of the performances (I haven’t seen them yet!), I thought about exploring our own collection of materials at KPL that could help support or accompany some of the topics being addressed in these performances. If you click on these words, you will find lists of titles that could be of help! Sometimes through fiction, others with non-fiction, but also movies, music and even recipe books, I hope you will enjoy my connections!
Here are my descriptions of some of the performances (in order to keep this blog short and to the point, I am going to offer very brief descriptions. For the original ones, go to their site):
Fuego Rojo: a production from Chile that will use texts by Eduardo Galeano to explore the history of Latin America. Unfortunately, KPL doesn’t have his Open Veins of Latin America but you can ask for it with an Interlibrary Loan.
