VISION Celebration Gala

This year we honour the 'Festival Queen' Fabienne Colas, with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award!
It's not too late to join us for the VISION Celebration Gala on February 2nd!

This year we are celebrating Fabienne Colas with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award, and Nancy Oliver-Mackenzie with the Dr. Clarence Bayne Community Service Award. We will also be recognizing two talented emerging artists: the META nominated Dayane Ntibarikure with the Gloria Mitchell-Aleong Award and vocalist and McGill student Jared Warden-Joseph with the Victor Philips Award.


Hosted this year by Global Television anchor Elysia Bryan-Baynes and Charles Biddle Award recipient AngeLo Cadet, the evening promises to be an elegant night of celebration, including a champagne cocktail hour, a four-course dinner with wine, live entertainment, the awards presentations and DJ Don Smooth keeping the mood right with music and dancing!
We are pleased to have MAPOU GINEN providing entertainment for the VISION Gala. This vibrant dance troupe, accompanied by a live drummer, brings together the dance, song, rhythm and literature of African, Haitian and West-Indian background. The group has performed in Quebec, United States and Europe.

Don't miss your chance to see the new play from the creator of CBC drama Da Kink in my Hair, Trey Anthony!

“No one talks about the scars that children bare when parents leave” says Trey Anthony. This play is a story of separation and reconciliation infused with a bold original score blending Gospel, Reggae and R&B with Classical music. 
 
This play brings to life the story of Daphne, a Jamaican immigrant woman and her three daughters. You will witness the poignant and present-day impact of immigration on family and the consequences of this unthinkable sacrifice in the name of love, and the challenge of navigating homophobia in the relationship between a mother and her queer daughter.

Scotian Journey:
School Tour + Public Presentation

Black Theatre Workshop presents our Annual School Tour, bringing high quality theatre and Black stories to schools. 

Scotian Journey by Anne-Marie Woods is the story of Sierra Carvery, a young Black woman from Halifax, Nova Scotia. As she completes a university history paper, gets distracted by thoughts about down home and heading back for the Africville Reunion. She recounts these experiences through storytelling, song and spoken word. Scotian Journey reveals the history and stories about Nova Scotia that are still relevant today, but not yet in the history books.

Don't miss your chance to see this unique and beautiful play at our public presentation!
