The Listening Stage: Assassinating Thomson

Hosted by Common Boots Theatre / BALANCE for Blind Adults

7:30 pm (EST)

The Listening Stage: Assassinating Thomson
Written and performed by Bruce Horak

The Listening Stage is a digital initiative of performances, workshops and readings developed in partnership with BALANCE for Blind Adults.

With Assassinating Thomson, blind artist Bruce Horak tells the story of The Way I See It, through the tale of Canadian painter Tom Thomson’s unsolved murder, and the subsequent rise of The Group of Seven. The mystery takes you from the tiny community of Canoe Lake, to the hallowed halls of our nation’s capital, and eventually on to the World stage.

Following the performance, Alex Bulmer and Bruce Horak will talk art, performance, and blindness with the audience.

This event is free to all, but donations to either Common Boots Theatre and/or BALANCE for Blind Adults are welcome.
