Yes-We-Can Theatre Group (YWCTG) is committed to performing arts as a vehicle to promote social integration, valorization and the self discovery of people with disabilities. YWCTG is a new community theatre group working in partnership with Scadding Court Community Centre (SCCC). YWCTG is looking for people with disabilities who are interested in sharing their own stories / life experiences and thoughts.
YWCTG is a drama initiative specifically designed to encourage open dialogue within communities. They aim to actively challenge and dispel the myths and stereotypes surrounding disabilities. They also wish to bring forth new narratives of how the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality affect this identity. YWCTG hopes that, through their work, people will begin to reconsider the notion of disability and what this term actually means.
In the next few months YWCTG is running a series of workshops to compile research information that will be used in an educational theatrical play. In addition the sessions will be focused in voicing the many different stories and concerns of people through group experimentations of visual arts and theatre techniques.
The workshops will take place at Scadding Court Community Centre. Below is our official work schedule:
February 9 – WORKSHOP #1 March 2 – WORKSHOP #4
February 16 – WORKSHOP #2 March 9 – WORKSHOP #5
February 26 – WORKSHOP #3
