THen and now: Pandemic Life Stories - Stream
The Delta Stageworks artist collective presented Then & Now, Pandemic Life Stories – a multimedia staged reading, at Genesis Theatre, Ladner, BC in November 2021.
The show features 10 community and professional theatre-makers and traces the ups and downs, the laughs and the lows of the lockdown life we’ve all been experiencing since March 2020. Audiences responded with enthusiasm and a big sense of shared identity with the stories we told.
Since January, we’re offering audiences this show as an online pay-for-view stream on Vimeo. The streamed stage event features filmed inserts that gives audiences an enhanced visual experience. Check out some of our backstage videos and other show features here and plan your night of at-home theatre going!

MY MOTHER'S STORY FOR DIVERSE VOICES WORKSHOP (PHASE 2)
Delta Stageworks’ ‘My Mother’s Story for Diverse Voices Workshop’ series with Marilyn Norry (mymothersstory.org), continues in the spring of 2022 with workshops for Delta community members to write and share their mother’s unique life journey. We will also be holding a theatre-making workshop intensive, where, working with the Stageworks professional artist team, interested participants are introduced to the process of transforming written stories into theatrical experiences.
Stageworks invites you to write your mother’s unique story at whatever age you are. Community members who identify as BIPOC and/or culturally diverse are especially welcomed. Sharing stories across cultural experiences helps us all connect and find our common humanity. There is financial support for BIPOC participants available through our program sponsor, THIS Initiative (The Harmony Initiative Society).
Led by Marilyn Norry, Delta Stageworks associate artist and author of ‘Writing Women’s History, Starting with Your Mother’, this personal narrative arts-based project is a transformative experience for participants. “In writing this story – and in sharing it with people from your community – you will discover things about yourself, your mother, and your family that will surprise and empower you,” says Marilyn.
