Intermission is hosting creative and critical responses to select shows from Soulpepper’s Around the World in 80 Plays as a part of the Taking on the World mentorship program for emerging IBPOC artists and arts writers. Taking on the World is a partnership between Intermission, Soulpepper Theatre Company, Brock University, the University of Toronto, and the University of Windsor, with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
What can we learn from Soulpepper’s audio drama The Parliament of the Birds?
For me, it seemed fitting to explore my learnings and journey through its original format – sound. You will hear excerpts from the playwright Guillermo Verdecchia and the director Soheil Parsa taken from our interview with the playwright, director and sound designer, along with my own voice overs and compositions.
A special thanks to Intermission, Soulpepper Theatre Company, SSHRC-CRSH and the organizers of Taking on the World for creating this opportunity.
Around the World in 80 Plays runs until June 30 on Soulpepper’s website. For tickets and more information, click here.
