Well, just because I'm a jazz goddess doesn't mean I'm not well rounded... I saw a moving and profound play in my neighbourhood today at Alchemy Theatre on Tecumseh. The play is called '"The Taxi Project" and to quote the program is "a new play about exploring freedom of expression, exile and home. It's a collaborative effort by four writers of different cultures, Ethiopian, Mexican, Bosnian and Chinese - Martha Kuwee Kumsa, Emma Beltran, Goran Simic and Sheng Xue respectively. It's a great ensemble piece and it's PWYC. It's presented by PEN Canada who sponsors the Writers in Exile program, of course because it addresses human rights... I loved it...it made me think...which is what the best theatre is supposed to do.
