With the Order of the Provincial Health Officer announcement asking event organizers to cancel any gathering larger than 50 people, including indoor and outdoor events, conferences, meetings, gatherings or other similar events, it became clear the production of White Noise at the Firehall Arts Centre could not proceed as scheduled. The show will be postponed until the Fall 2020. We will continue to update our community and thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support.
In health & solidarity,
A new play by Taran Kootenhayoo, White Noise is a comedy about two Canadian families who have dinner together for the first time during the Truth and Reconciliation week, White Noise explores what it means to live in Canada from two different paradigms. How do we deal with internalized racism? Do we keep pushing it away and pretend to live safely in our day-to-day?
White noise is the sound you hear until something real happens.
