If you missed your opportunity to see Then & Now: Pandemic Life Stories live in November 2021, Delta Stageworks is excited to offer you access to a streamed version of the performance. Recorded live during the two performances at Genesis Theatre, the stream features filmed inserts that gives audiences an enhanced visual experience. Tickets for the stream will be available in January 2022!
After two sold-out workshops in May 2021, Delta Stageworks is pleased to be offering Phase 2 of a series of personal narrative writing and storytelling workshops with Marilyn Norry, Vancouver actor, writer, editor, educator and creator of the marvellously successful My Mother’s Story project. Since 2004, Marilyn’s workshops have been the catalyst for women – and men – in communities around the world to connect with their mother’s life story.
In Phase 2 of this project that continues in early 2022, interested participants can participate in storytelling (performance based) workshops with Marilyn Norry and artist associate Cory Haas. You will also have the opportunity to work with other professional theatre artists in the company. Our vision leads to a community-focused storytelling event in 2022.
Untold Stories: Delta BC in the 1920s (POSTPONED)
Delta Stageworks’ newest storytelling project about life in Delta in the 1920s, is on hold due to the impact of the current public health crisis. This arts-based community development project involves professional artists working together with community members and groups in a process called collective creation. We create scenes and characters based on real life events and the lived experiences of people in Delta.
With the support of Delta Archives we gather historical documents, newspapers, letters and photographs to explore stories that are often lost or marginalized in traditional histories of Delta.
For this project, Delta Stageworks has partnered with the Delta Heritage Society to provide public workshops, opportunities for youth engagement and a place for diverse community groups to network and shares stories with Delta audiences.
