Street Spirits explore self-image

Street Spirits Theatre Company will be presenting an audience-interactive theatre event about what we believe about our bodies and about ourselves.

Titled Breaking Bodies, the presentation runs Wednesday, Feb. 6 starting at 7:30 p.m. at Artspace above Books and Company.

What makes you matter? What makes you interesting? What makes you exciting? This play follows the experiences of a group of young people as they deal with mixed messages abut who they are and about what makes a person attractive.

Where does a person’s self-image and world-view come from?

Come and join in and see what challenges our young people face. Share your perspective in an evening of exciting and entertaining interactive theatre. Street Spirits members have crafted a performance to explore how these issues arise and how people and our society as a whole deal with them.

The performance will be presented in “Forum Theatre” allowing audience members to get involved in suggesting ways to deal with the issues in real life.

Street Spirits is an internationally recognized social action theatre company from right here in Prince George. Street Spirits has won many awards for its work including the Otto Rene Castillo Memorial Award for Innovation in Theatre presented in New York City.

“We were the first Canadian Theatre Company to win this award,” says Street Spirits’ artistic director Andrew Burton.
