In the fall of 2016, in partnership with the South Granville Seniors Centre, the Seniors Create project held workshops at local seniors’ centres collecting stories from seniors on what life is like in today’s fast-paced, youth-centric society. This first phase ended with a presentation of the film and stories collected.
In the second phase of the Seniors Create project, in the fall of 2017 and early winter 2018, those stories were developed into a script, now called View From a Window, and performed at six venues including seniors’ centres and theatres, (Community Centres). The production gave a voice and creative space to senior-aged theatre professionals who then performed the presentation aimed at senior audiences.
Through major feedback from audiences, the project team was repeatedly told to bring the performance to a wider audience, “younger people should be seeing this performance, not only seniors!”
We hope to bring View From a Window to your community in the fall of 2019.
