Dancing Sky Theatre is still moving forward, and we intend to keep creating and producing original events for our fabulous Saskatchewan audience.
This spring, we offer you...
An evening of storytelling and song
May 27 - June 6, 2020
Dancing Sky Theatre in Meacham is thrilled to be bringing you a second instalment of Fireside Stories. Last fall we found a way for us to gather together, and safely share stories again in this strange new COVID world. We built a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre that looks out across the prairie, allowing 30 people to safely get together to listen to stories of rural life and landscape. Last fall’s event was so popular that we are bringing you a second version this spring.
Four professional storytellers will share their reflections on rural life and history in Saskatchewan. Saskatoon institution Kent Allen will share a personal story of how his family came to settle in this beautiful province. We will be exploring the boundaries of storytelling through movement and dance by partnering with Jackie Latendresse and her wonderful Free Flow Dance Company, including dancers Mitchell Larsen and Taylor Zeller. We will also be sharing the amazing talent of Anna Bekolay who will be entrancing you with her magical vocal and musical skills.
Like last time, you will enjoy an evening of outdoor entertainment in our spectacular rural setting and experience the ancient power of gathering together to share our stories.
Due to current COVID restrictions we are unable to offer you food this time around, but we will bring that option back as soon as we are all vaccinated, and communities can assemble safely.
Performance will last about 75 minutes with no intermission.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Arts organizations have been asked to respond to social events and issues brought back into focus by the protests and activism in the USA sparked by BLM.
We are encouraged to see that this is evolving into a broader discussion about diversity and inclusion in Canada, and DST is committed to being part of this necessary process
We invite you to go to our D&I tab for more information about our D&I plan and process
DST is currently in the beginning of an expansion of our dining room and the addition of separate dressing rooms for our artists. This work will allow us to make social distancing more effective for our patrons, casts, crew and staff.
Phase 2 or our expansion will centre around around upgrading our bathrooms. Work on this phase is dependant on our reaching our fundraising goal of $50,000.
