A crisis isn’t a crisis when it is Elsewhere…
Elsewhere, written by a young Venezuelan-Canadian woman, is the story of six people’s lives — their hope, resilience, resistance and survival — amidst the chaos and absurdity of the Venezuelan crisis.
A Grandmother reflects on her past, a Beauty Queen wonders how to feed her children, a Cop questions the violence around him, a Homeless Man begs God for food, a Teenager risks his life to join the fight for freedom, and a Venezuelan-Canadian woman looks on from afar, struggling with what is happening in a country she calls home.
All seek a way to move forward, grasping at remnants of a life they once knew; a life irrevocably changed by scarcity, greed and corruption. The play points at the fragility of systems we put our trust in, while asking us to consider why a crisis is never a crisis when it is Elsewhere.
Our Elsewhere creative team is back in the rehearsal room!
We are in the process of updating the script and redesigning the set in order to tour Elsewhere to theatres, festivals and community centres during the 2019 / 2020 season.
