Event has already taken place. A symphonic multimedia experience based on four Canadian women’s engaging life stories, with music, song, dance, spoken word, photography and graphics.
Through music, song, dance, spoken word, photography and graphics, we get to know Alice Munro, Amanda Todd, Roberta Bondar and Rita Joe in a symphonic multimedia experience.
Their stories inspired the director and creative producer Donna Feore, and the orchestra’s artistic director, Alexander Shelley, to create Life Reflected: ’The stories of these four women are some of the most captivating, personal and yet universal stories I have heard.’
Is based on Nobel Prize-winner Alice Munro’s semi-autobiographical short story – a reflection on memory, childhood and the formative stages of life.
Tells the story of a vibrant 15-year-old who, after suffering for years from cyber abuse, spoke out against harassment and bullying on YouTube. Amanda Todd tragically took her life on October 10, 2012.
Dr. Roberta Bondar dreamed of being an astronaut. This dream was realized in January 1992, aboard NASA’s space shuttle Discovery, when she became the first neurologist in space and Canada’s first female astronaut.
Is based on the poem by Mi’kmaw elder and poet Rita Joe expressing the pain she experienced at Residential School, but also her conviction that her words could guide and inspire to strength and healing.
Meet the people behind powerful Life Reflected at 16.45 in Stenhammarsalen. Participants: Amanda Todd’s mother Carol Todd, composer Jocelyn Morlock, choreographer/dancer Santee Smith and and the artistic director Alexander Shelley (conductor), together with Gothenburg Symphony’s CEO Sten Cranner.
