H’art to Return to Isabel Bader Human Rights Arts Festival

Nov 15, 2019 | Featured Stories, H'art Studio

After 2018’s successful first appearance at the Isabel Bader Human Rights Festival with the 20th anniversary play A Gift From Martadella, H’art Centre is proud to announce it will return to the Festival in 2020 with a new production, Small Things. The production will mark another first for H’art Centre, a story told primarily through dance and documentary.

“This unique work marries documentary and dance as the stories of parents’ experiences of raising a child with disabilities is told through film intertwined with live dance featuring their adult children onstage,” said director Kathryn MacKay (Theatre Kingston, PeerLess Productions, 1000 Islands Playhouse).

The cast is working with acclaimed choreographers to tell the story of their lives via dance. From contemporary movement to classical ballet to the beat of the SUBPAC, the talented cast is mastering an impressive mix of dance styles and techniques.

Small Things will feature performances and contributions by 50+ remarkable artists from the H’art Studio program and guest artists. The professional show will feature music direction by acclaimed musician David Archibald, original music by composer David Dines and choreography by renowned inclusive dance educator Melissa Mahady Wilton and special dance works by Menka Nagrani, Founder and choreographer of Montreal’s integrated dance-theatre company Les Productions des Pieds des Mains.
