By February 26, 2020 Uncategorized

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process as storyteller, playwright and award-winning author Shauntay Grant workshops scenes from a new theatrical work-in-progress, and talks about her poetic approach to playwriting. She will be joined by Zimbabwean musician Hope Masike for this very special event.

Shauntay’s play The Bridge was produced at Neptune Theatre in 2019 in collaboration with 2b theatre company and Obsidian Theatre. She has received many awards and honors for written and performance works, and she served as Halifax’s third poet laureate. Shauntay’s love of language stretches back to her storytelling roots in Nova Scotia’s historic Black communities. She teaches creative writing at Dalhousie University.

Admission is free.

This event is part of TD presents: African Heritage Month at Halifax Public Libraries.
