Storytelling is in our hearts

Curabitur luctus, tortor sed feugiat ornare, lacus tortor pharetra purus, nec rutrum risus purus vitae lacus. Aliquam sagittis convallis dictum.

Hazel Venzon  Artistic Director / co-Founder

 

A first-generation Canadian with Filipino ancestry who has spent the last seven years focusing her theatre arts practice towards the investigation of Canadian identity and migration. Her practice and process for developing work involve listening to personal stories and igniting a conversation with new Canadians.

 

The personal stories and conversations are used as inspiration for her solo work and projects with communities. This research process parallels her personal journey to recognize her heritage.

 

Venzon has come across stories from mothers and children who have endured family-separation and the complex aftermath of reunification. It is through these stories that inspire Venzon and how they alter and impact Canadian culture and identity.

David Oro Creative Director / co-Founder

‚Äč

Winnipeg based artist, born and raised in Metro Manila Philippines, who migrated to Winnipeg at the age of seventeen. Migration has, undoubtedly, played a massive role in Oro’s work, which has impacted both his life and his art. When approached by theatre artist, Hazel Venzon, with this project (The Places We Go), Oro immediately knew he wanted to use this opportunity to retell parts of his life, which reflect his childhood; when he lived apart from his father (Saudi Arabia) for over ten years.

 

He will use this performance as an opportunity to tell his story and to share memories of his neighborhood and surroundings growing up in Metro Manila. Oro’s talent and long history of digital design, a graphic artist, painter, illustrator, and animator - make him the best fit to support this theatrical feat.

 

Immigration has played a significant role in both collaborators’ lives. They are thrilled to use The Places We Go as an opportunity to retell parts of their lives, reflecting how many Canadians, too, have lived apart from their parents and loved-ones spanning the majority of their formative years.
