Circle Game – A night of music and memories
Sunday October 6th at 7:00 pm
Can we relive memories through music?
Featuring: Maya Jenkins and friends
The show asks the question “what is a memory and what are the various ways we can relive them?” All of the music in this show is tied to a memory that we have of our grandparents or is one of their favourite songs. We use the music to further understand our relationship with our grandparents and their lives. We knew them as children, but now that we are adults we start to look at our memories differently and everything that you thought you knew about this person suddenly becomes a paradox. Our rationale is that music brings people together; people from different countries, different generations, and different socioeconomic backgrounds. The purpose of the evening is to try and strengthen the relationship with someone who maybe isn’t here anymore, yet is still with you everyday.
