All ages are invited to Ebb & Flow: Tides of Settlement on PEI, a heritage recognition show that presents stories about PEI and the ebb and flow of its people, on Saturdays at Beaconsfield Carriage House in Charlottetown.
This is the second year of the multimedia stage show created and produced by Amanda Mark and Laurie Murphy.
Through photographs, video and text, the show presents stories about Indigenous Mi’kmaq and the Island’s settlers by musicians, singers, storytellers and writers Teresa Kuo, Tiffany Liu, Julie Pellissier-Lush, Amanda Mark, Laurie Murphy, Vince The Messenger and Haley Zavo. Dutch Thompson will be the guest artist for August 15.
Additional writing by Margie Carmichael, Yvette Doucette (a poem as recorded by Tamara Steele), Jason Kun and Emily Nasrallah. Performer Teresa Kuo is also a professional video artist and has created original artwork that animates and helps tell the stories about settlement on PEI. New to the team in 2020 is Dylan Smith, a stage lighting and sound professional.
Contributors to the production include Jim Hornby, Dr. Ed MacDonald, Dr. Jim Sentence, Sally Cole, Mitsuki Mori and Brian McInnis. The show will also be recorded for online audiences by Pat Martell.
