Scenes from Carried Away on the Crest of a Wave – Livestreamed by UofW Theatre, 25-27 March 2021

UNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE PROGRAM PRESENTS

scenes from carried away on the crest of a wave

Written by David Yee

Directed by Andy Houston

Associate Director: Mira J. Henderson

 

carried away on the crest of a wave is a series of stories that follow the impacts of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami as they resonate, intersect globally, and move us with the power of water and the beauty of human resilience. The deadliest tsunami in recorded history, the waves killed over 250,000 people from forty-six countries as they struck the coasts of fourteen nations spanning two continents. In the aftermath, we find a wide range of humanity: a conflicted priest, sisters of legend, an orphaned boy, a radio shock jock, an awed scientist, and a man who makes miraculous discoveries in the aftermath of the disaster.

Written by David Yee, the audience bears witness to the experiences of people from around the world who have been changed in their minds and souls by this event. These stories represent glimpses of the human spirit, facing enormous adversity yet driven by a will to come together for reflection and sharing — a desire that our own pandemic-impacted world knows all too well. The staging of scenes from carried away on the crest of a wave will reveal the effects of a global natural disaster through a surreal lens. In the ebb and flow of trauma, the unconscious and perceptual space of dreams will exist alongside and within our experience and understanding of reality.

Director Andy Houston collaborates with Denyse Karn (set and props), Howard J. Davis (projections), Deanna Choi (sound), and Paul de Jong (vocal coach), as well as resident designers Nadine Grant (costume) and Nicole Reid (lighting). Together, they weave together a dream-like world of found objects, images and people amidst an environment as fluid as floodwaters from a tsunami.

As the program’s first ever livestreamed production, carried away on the crest of a wave aims to connect our communities in times of uncertainty through the medium of live theatrical performance. There will be a digital dramaturgy Hub and Engagement Space hosted on the website for the performance, which can be found at uwcarriedaway.com. This space aims to provide context to our audience’s experience of the play and production, from research sources and themes of the work to the creative vision of the artistic team. Don’t miss this important aspect of scenes from carried away on the crest of a wave.

12th Annual Cherry Festival

The Cherry Park Neighborhood Association is currently organizing their 12th Annual Cherry Festival, which will be held on July 6th, in Cherry Park in Kitchener.

The Festival will include live music, children’s entertainment – including Erick Traplin, food, numerous vendors and of course lots of cherries.  The Cherry Train will return this year, as well as the Cherry Café and the vintage car show.  The Kids will have a jumping room, the Carousel Swing, Mini-Putt golf and the climbing wall.

This region-wide event was launched twelve years ago to enhance community spirit and raise funds for the many activities our group undertakes including neighbourhood clean-ups, adult education programs, community gardens, corn socials and various other special events.

#FridaysforFuture School Strike for Climate

On February 1, 2019, young people will sit out of classes across Waterloo Region and again take to the streets to demand that our leaders face responsibility for our warming planet. The Fridays for Future School Strike for Climate will take place at Waterloo City Hall from 12:30pm to 1:30pm on Friday, 1 February 2019, and on the first Friday of every month. Supporters of all ages welcome.

 

Organizing behind Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, climate strikers will ask cities and councils across Waterloo Region, as well as the federal and provincial governments, to declare a climate emergency.

 

Thunberg blasts our collective inaction on climate change: “Some people say that we are not doing enough to fight climate change. But that is not true. Because to ‘not do enough’ you have to do something. And the truth is we are basically not doing anything.”

 

Greta’s not alone. Another youth activist, Jamie Margolin of Zero Hour, has begun her own campaign to rouse global leaders into concrete measures to stabilize our shared climate. Recently, Margolin compared climate change to “a time bomb about to go off and everyone [is] ignoring it.”

 

We know that our futures will be disrupted by climate, and feel that we have no voice. So we are making ourselves visible across the world. Thirty-five thousand students in Brussels went on strike from school this past week alone, joining school strikers across Europe and heatwave-stricken Australia.

 

Like our peers across the world, students in Waterloo Region are frightened of an uncertain future dramatically altered by climate impacts and planetary instability. We don’t see the point in attending school for an education for a future that has been neglected by Canada’s government and by decision-makers world-wide.

 

We strike because we are ignored. We strike because our elders are sacrificing us for short-term profits. We see, as Greta does, that our leaders “need to put their economic goals aside to safeguard the living conditions of humankind in the future.”

 

Given that the world has until 2030 to cut emissions in half in order to secure a safe climate future, cities across the UK have declared climate emergencies, intending to fully decarbonize their economies. Canada’s precedent for declaring a climate emergency has just recently been set by Vancouver, and Christine Boyle, Vancouver city councillor, told journalists: “I was really inspired to see the students…that they are acting similarly to students around the globe to get older elected leaders in office to listen to them.”

 

If our leaders truly listened to the science on climate change, as we young people do, they would not build further fossil fuel infrastructure, would end all fossil fuel and animal agriculture subsidies, and invest heavily in a zero-carbon energy future.

 

We need our elected officials and other citizens to speak out with us for our futures. Today. We need all levels of government to declare a state of climate emergency, and we need every decision they make to be made as if our future depends on it. Because it does.

Back To School: Bus Program & FREE Teacher Memberships

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Back To School: Bus Program & FREE Teacher Memberships

THEMUSEUM Announces New Partnership & Teacher Appreciation Day

 

Kitchener, Ontario –

 

As we prepare to head into a new school year, THEMUSEUM continues its commitment to lifelong learning with educational exhibitions, interactive technology installations and hands-on opportunities.

 

Through The School Bus Program, generously supported by the Gore Mutual Insurance Company, transportation is provided to students who would otherwise not be able to afford a field trip.

 

“We’ve repeatedly heard from a number of educators in Waterloo Region that the barrier for students to attend field trips is the cost of buses,” said Paige Phillips, the Director of Development & Membership at THEMUSEUM. “The support from Gore Mutual Insurance has eliminated that financial strain, making THEMUSEUM more accessible to students so they may enjoy a learning experience outside of the classroom.”

 

In addition, THEMUSEUM is now able to offer Teacher Memberships at no cost to educators. The Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan now sponsors Teacher Memberships, which provides teachers with free access to THEMUSEUM and ample opportunity to further develop or incorporate education programs and exhibitions into their lesson plans. 

 

In recognition of just how important educators are in this community, THEMUSEUM is holding one last “hurrah” before the school year begins. Teacher members with their OCT card will receive free admission and a free membership on Thursday, August 23 from 9:00am-4:00pm. They are welcome to bring up to three family members.

BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head at THEMUSEUM

BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head at THEMUSEUM

Traveling Exhibition Focuses on Function, Physiology and Future

 

Kitchener, Ontario –

 

Why do you (we, they) think what you (we, they) think? All your mindful musings – soon answered!

 

Using innovative special effects, video games, optical illusions and interactive displays, BRAIN shows how the brain functions – and sometimes – malfunctions. This hands‑on exhibition provides an up‑close look at the human body’s most essential and fascinating organ by exploring its development, geography and function. A shimmering tunnel of flashing fiber-optics illuminates networks of neurons firing and communicating, as visitors delve deeper into the brain to discover its basic workings. From infancy through old age, learn the evolution of scientists’ understanding of the brain’s physiology and study the re-created skull of Phineas Gage — a man who survived after his brain was pierced by a metal rod.

 

“We’re psyched to announce today, on the heels of World Brain Day, the opportunity to bring such an informative, engaging and interactive exhibition to Waterloo Region,” said David Marskell, CEO, THEMUSEUM. “Knowledge is power – and this 3,000-square-foot grey matter exploration will be sure to expand your mind!”

 

The exhibition makes brain-related disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, depression and addiction, easier to understand. Guests will explore the relationship between depression and creativity, how drugs work in the brain, and the nature of pain as well as the future of brain treatments, genome mapping and molecular medicine. It will run from September 29, 2018 – April 28, 2019 and is made possible by Pfizer Inc. and produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health. The exhibition is generously sponsored by The Ontario Brain Institute. A series of related events, including THEMUSEUM’s Dialogue Series, will be announced shortly. More information on BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head can be found here.

Service Dog Fundraiser

Service Dog Fundraiser Announcement

 

KITCHENER, Ontario – Announcing that on Sunday July 8th from 10am-4pm at the Kitchener Polish Legion, we will be hosting a Service Dog Fundraiser to bring Amanda’s Service Dog home! There are vendors who will be there to showcase their amazing products
and services along with an affordable clothing drive with clothing of all sizes with prices ranging from $1-$8 per item! The support from the local community has been huge, so there is also a silent auction for some amazing gifts that have been donated from
local businesses such as Belgium Nursery, Alpine Boston Pizza, Shakespeare Pies, and so many more! There are well over 40 silent auction items!

 

Although there are tons of financial supports for those that need a Service Dog if you have a well-known disability. Unfortunately for Amanda, who just turned 18 a couple months ago, she suffers from PTSD and non-epileptic seizures and so there is absolutely
no support that we can find to help cover the costs of this Service Dog that will literally help bring about the positive change she needs to live her life to the fullest. At $20,000, not to mention travelling to his location in Strathroy at least once per
week, Amanda’s family is unable to cover this cost fully by themselves.

 

That is where the support from this community has been essential and completely appreciated.

 

So, come out and support bringing this Service Dog who will be trained in exactly what she needs, home to Amanda so that she will be able to live life to the fullest. All proceeds from this event (excluding whatever is purchased directly from the vendors) will
go to covering these Service Dog costs.

 

Amanda and her family would like to thank you for your support from the bottoms of their hearts.

 

For more information please contact Sharlene Mohlman at
