About the show

A chorus of timeless souls officiate over a ceremony, delving into lives that came long before us. Through ritual and theatrics, movement and song, puppets and projections, our ancestors are conjured into our theatre-temple, summoning to life their legacies, struggles and victories. A deeply intimate search to understand our past, present and future. This production is the result of an organic collaboration between the actors, designers, technical team, and faculty.

"We’re living in a fluid universe, in which the art of faith is not in taking one’s stand,
but in learning to swim.” – Alan Watts

ART APART | Urgent support for emerging artists amid COVID-19 crisis

Because physical distance shouldn’t mean total isolation, the National Theatre School of Canada (NTS) is allocating $60,000 in support of emerging artists (as 80 grants of $750). These funds will be granted to theatre artists in training, or artists who have completed a theatre training program within the past five years, to present a piece of art online.

Apply online: https://ent-nts.ca/en/art-apart

Please note that the School's activities are suspended until May 1st. Subscribe to the newsletter to find out about the latest developments regarding the crisis.
