|ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS WELCOME BLACK THEATRE WORKSHOP|
MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 5, 2016 – In recognition of Black History Month, three Alternative schools: Options, Elizabeth and Venture welcomed the Black Theatre Workshop’s presentation of Binti’s Journey.
The one-hour play follows Binti, an AIDS orphan, on a life changing journey to discover what is precious about life, and what is special about herself. Students ran the gamut of emotions, laughing and reflecting during the inspiring performance.
For over 20 years, the Black Theatre Workshop has celebrated Black History Month by touring its plays in schools, libraries and community centers in and around Montreal. Their goal is to create a greater cross-cultural understanding and to bring far-reaching and powerful theatre experiences to young audiences.
The activity was organized by the English Montreal School Board’s newest Spiritual and Community Animator, Pierre-Luc Lajoie.
