Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to the final presentation or “showcase” of Art Starts’s performance program “The Element.” The Element was the focus of the video I made about Art Starts for the Neighbourhood Arts Network Summer Video Series.
The night included monologues, dramatic scenes, dance pieces and music. Everyone performed beautifully and it was great to see how original the content of the pieces were, many of them dealing with social issues and talking about change.
It was great to see the performance, especially having seen it at different stages of its development. Enjoy these pictures of the showcase and check out the video on Art Starts, featuring The Element program, on NAN’s Vimeo page.
