Countdown to Cabaret of Monologues!

Friday, February 21, 2020

Two weeks to show-time! On Saturday, March 7th 2020, we invite you to join us for our annual International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues: Changes.

While we’ve been hard at work in preparation for our performances we encourage you to get to know more about this year’s show! Have you seen our line-up for this year’s Cabaret? We are excited to release a sneak peak of the monologues along with the wonderful women who will be performing them. Find out more about this fierce group of women and their stories by visiting our blog.

You may also be interested in taking a look at our promotional video created by our very own Brooklyn Kilfoyle on Sarasvàti Productions Facebook page. Here you’ll get to see an in-depth point of view from some of our performers!

Two public performances will be taking place on Saturday, March 7th at 4pm and 8pm. ASL interpretation will be offered at the 8pm show. Elder Phylis Hart will start the show with an opening blessing before the ladies set the stage.

Tickets are just $15. Looking forward to seeing you there!

As part of our commitment to work with the community, we will also be taking pieces on the road. We are honoured to be hosted at Sunshine House, North End Women’s Centre, Sage House, St. John’s Library, University of Winnipeg, Agape House, CMHR, Altona United Church, Genesis House, and Rainbow Resource Centre.

February has been a busy month for our team at Sarasvàti. Our newest staff member Fawnda Neckoway has jumped in with both feet to prepare for the show in May. This well anticipated experience shares the stories of over 70 Indigenous youth and their view of reconciliation. Songide’ewin is set to include a promenade featuring artwork created by youth participants. It will be followed by a stage performance composed of the youth’s stories and compiled by playwright Jo McDonald and collaborator Darla Contois. The show will be directed by well-known theatre artist Tracey Nepinak. We will conclude every performance by hosting a gathering to provide the opportunity for dialogue while feasting on traditional food. We welcome you join Sarasvàti Productions as we continue to encourage our community’s youth to participate in a conversation about Reconciliation.
