Workshop “sneak peak” production February 25 2014
Sponsored by the TD Then and Now Festival and Black Artists in Network Dialogue 

Motherland is a new project in development from the same company that brought you the hit site specific play, Nightmare Dream.

Because I Love You gives voice to the story of African mother’s encounter with the Western world, both in a historical context and in the modern reality of foreign adoption.

Set inside the St Lawrence Hall, Because I Love You is told through the style of myth, magic, and ritual and a unique blending of text, sound and movement.

The piece is the second of ‘The Nightmare Dream Series’, a trilogy of experimental theatre projects exploring the African encounter with the ‘other’.
