Do you have a tale to tell?

This fall, GCTC will be part of an exciting Canadian collaboration that has everybody talking.

It’s called Tale of a Town - a site-specific theatre and media project that celebrates our Canadian stories. We’ll go directly into the community and gather stories from the residents and business owners, then collaborate with local theatre companies and arts organizations to turn those true stories into an interactive, site-specific, multi-media performance. What’s really wonderful is that Wellington West - where GCTC has made its home for the past 7 years - will be a featured neighbourhood for the cross-Canada collective creation.

Tale of a Town is the brainchild of Toronto’s FIXT POINT — a professional theatre and media company. They’ve started the tour in eastern Canada, setting out in their “storymobile recording booth” gathering stories through interviews with local stakeholders, heroes, business owners and residents in PEI, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.

Both the Shenkman Arts Centre and Arts Court join us in this creative partnership, and I can’t wait to see how it all comes together. Watch for the storymobile cruising through Ottawa this November, where you can come in from the cold (too soon?) and tell us your neighbourhood story. Added bonus: you’ll get free hot chocolate!
