Submitted by Ceitlynn Epners-The Maxwell Baha’i Youth Workshop, a performing arts group from Shawnigan Lake B.C., is touring Haida Gwaii this March Break. This group of 19 students from the Maxwell International Baha’i School hope to share the ideals of hope, equality and social harmony through their five on-island dramatic/dance performances. The performances combine youthful energy, enthusiasm, dance, drama and music to address issues such as racism, gender equality, drug abuse, poverty and violence. Their performance and follow-up discussion is designed to foster feelings of unity, peace and a respect for diversity. The group has toured through Canada, the United States, China, Korea and Brazil. Their performances offer insight and solutions to many social issues that challenge today’s youth and enhance understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity.
Audiences of all ages will enjoy these performances. Their performance/workshop schedule is listed below. Entrance is by donation at community performances and free at the Teen Centres.
The March 22 performance in Port Clements will be a special fundraiser for the Decock family, with some top-quality door prizes and a concession.
Here’s the performance schedule:
