2017-2018 Speaking Out Season

An eclectic selection of great professional storytelling to entertain and enlighten. We journeyed through French-Canadian culture, Argentina, the African Diaspora, the Yukon First Nation, Ireland, the lands of fairies, and of Norse Gods, all without leaving the capital city.

All 7 shows were presented at the National Art Centre, Alan and Roula Rossy Pavilion.
