"Displaced" Invited to M1 Singapore Fringe Festival



Ground Cover Theatre's Displaced, which recently took home 4 SATAwards, will be travelling across the world to perform in the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival in January 2018 as one of the four highlighted international shows. The trip is made possible with the support of Creative Saskatchewan, the Canada Council for the Arts, the University of Saskatchewan, and the High Commission of Canada.

Emma Laishram, Anna Mazurik, and Jackie Block star in "Displaced"

From the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival:

"Displaced echoes the Festival’s wish to showcase pieces that 'voice the concerns of today' by exploring themes of isolation, cultural identity and prejudice through the lens of three female immigrants moving to a new country—Canada. The topic of immigration is in the public eye, where issues such as humanitarian consciousness, fear of exploitation, and discrimination are being heatedly debated. By focusing on the issue of immigration, and especially through physical movement, Displaced hopes to provide a varied landscape, in which various cultures can come together and participate as members of the audience."

If you would like to see the show before our international premiere, we are performing just TWO shows in Saskatoon on January 20. Tickets for the matinee have sold out, and there are only 80 seats for the evening show. Details on how to purchase tickets can be found here.
