Theater of Witness: The Heart and Soul of Story
November 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Founder and Artistic Director of Theater of Witness
Teya Sepinuck will present an inspiring multi-media program of film excerpts and life stories from her work creating original testimonial theater with those whose stories haven’t been heard in society. Drawing on her work with ex-combatants, victims and survivors of war, prisoners and their families, refugees and asylum seekers, and those affected by inner city violence, poverty and homelessness, Teya will speak about the power of bearing witness, bringing participants together across divides of difference, and using personal and collective story to inspire healing and peace building for performers as well as audiences.
