“They are all so honest…the seniors, when they tell their story and the actors, when they perform them.” - First impression of Red Threads playback performance by a Villa Cabrini resident
Four years of regular performances at Villa Cabrini and going strong! Thanks to funding from Manitoba Community Services Council, LIFT and Healthy Together the relationship between the troupe and seniors is blooming. The warmth of the seniors has given the troupe safe ground to explore the storytelling of playback and take risks to grow artistically. In the fall, we are planning evening performances so the residents can invite family and friends to dinner and theatre.
The invitation to dinner and theater will also be extended to other seniors’ residences in the area.
