This year, 10x10 will provide opportunities for groups of us to see plays and engage in talk-back sessions afterward, to help build our community of 10x10 and also the larger community of Thunder Bay. Our first talk-back will follow an NTLive satellite broadcast of Treasure Island (on either January 22 or the encore on February 21).
All the arts help us to build and refine community in different ways; the art of theatre is core to how we treat each other, how we choose to make peace or war.
Let us think now on the nature of silence
On the act of regarding another
That is not the other
But rather another
fellow being on this earth.
[from On the Act of Regarding Another: Some thoughts on live performance, silence and fragility by Caridad Svich, 2014]
