MISCELLANEOUS Productions presents POWER

In a groundbreaking project developed by MISCELLANEOUS Productions (creators of e-race, What You Carry With You, THE REENA PROJECT: Outcasts & Angels and Stock Characters: The Cooking Show), a group of culturally diverse, multi-barriered youth are collaborating with a team of professional artists on POWER: an evening of solo, duo and trio performance pieces, ensemble drumming and dance numbers, all of which take a raw, honest look at the things that matter to youth in the community: power, racism, immigration, poverty, violence, sexism, addiction and love.

Building on workshops and outreach initiatives conducted through 2008, a casting call in January 2009 and another in July 2009 drew youth from local high schools, community centres and youth-serving organizations. Since January, under the guidance of Director/Writer Elaine Carol and other professional artists, the youth performers have had intensive training in interdisciplinary performance art, solo performance, theatrical monologue, stand-up comedy, Slam poetry, ritual performance, World music, hip hop music and dance.
MISCELLANEOUS Productions is proud to present POWER at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre:
Open Dress Rehearsal/Preview 8PM: Thursday, November 26
Performances: 8 PM: Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28
Admission: $5.00 - $15.00 sliding scale
