Vital Sign: Arts & Culture
Total Grant: $31,120
Theatre SKAM will create and preview a new play that highlights the life of the late Joan Mans (1925-2010), a former Victoria resident who attended hundreds of Victoria arts events and volunteered for many Victoria organizations. Using video and audio that Joan co-created before she died, My Memory's Not So Good Features recordings of Joan, three live professional actors, 24 young children, and 24 youth dancers, who all work to tell of Joan's world-wide travels, to share her witticisms and philosophies, and to (re)introduce live audiences to one of Victoria's most memorable personalities.
