‘The Journey` is a unique, multimedia, live theatre experience framed in the dark history of slavery, but ending in the spirit of freedom. The performance provides a peek into the complex history of people of African descent, in an attempt to separate the fact from the fiction. The production is truly a collaborative effort, inspired by the spirit of cooperation exhibited by the unsung heroes of the Underground Railroad revolution.
The score is a mix of horns, strings, West-African drummers, vocalists, and poets. We combine the musical talents of the string section of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra with the eclectic horns of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble from Chicago. We also feature the talents of local Toronto artists such as Dwayne Morgan and Quisha Wint. Throughout the three-act production, we fully engage the audience with elements of modern dance, poetry, and live music combined with an unforgettable visual presentation.
Tickets available in May
