Theatre du Poulet Settle Elsewhere
Multiple Showtimes from Oct. 22nd to 27th
Settle Elsewhere is an innovative and timely new production by Theatre du Poulet. Combining character mask, site- specific performance and documentary theatre with original music, Settle Elsewhere explores the wide scope of stories and day-to-day struggles faced by immigrants to Canada. Beginning at the historic Pier 21 Museum of Immigration, this immersive piece will take the audience on a journey to locations around Halifax, giving a glimpse into the rarely shared daily lives, stories, and experiences of those who are coping with the heartache of leaving home and the challenges of settling elsewhere.
