Living Below The Line
Watercourse Theatre
March 9 and 16 1-3:30PM/EST
Mennonite Central Committee, Kitchener, ON

The goal of Living Below The Line is to provide an opportunity for individuals living in poverty in Waterloo Region to give voice to their stories and experiences, and to have these stories listened to and honoured. LBTL is about understanding people’s realities and learning from them. To do this, LBTL wants to grow a creative community that will use theatre as a form of advocacy for change in Waterloo Region. LBTL is a 4-month project running March – June 2022 for 17 individuals living in poverty to collaborate on a new theatre play, with music, with professional theatre makers who are experienced in co-creating work with communities. Our new show will then be presented to 5 different audiences around Waterloo Region. More info at: WatercourseTheatre.com

The project is led by Pat the Dog Theatre Creation 202 Women’s Room Femme Catherine Frid.
