Slowly rose: my shadow on the ground
Dreamily began a dreamy roam,
And I upward smiled silent welcome.
LUNATION is a program of theatrical gatherings inspired by days of significance in various months. In association with community partners, Threshold began offering LUNATION events for selected months in our St. Clair West and Oakwood Village neighbourhoods prior to the pandemic.
The first LUNATION was in response to February's theme of Family-- a performance of Mark Cassidy’s Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian. ABD took place at the Amp Studio Café 154 Oakwood Ave.
April was National Poetry Month and we celebrated with Recite Night at Ellington's Music & Café 805 St. Clair Ave. West. People from diverse backgrounds came out to share and discuss their favourite poems. Thank you to Ellington's for hosting!
National Mining Week took place in May acknowledging the importance of mining in Canada. Thanks to those who joined us on Thursday May 31 at 8:30 pm in Roseneath Park for a brief workshop and information gathering session for Your Mine & Ours a piece we are developing on the effects of Canadian mining industry both at home and abroad.
Our October event focussed on mental health, in response to World Mental Health Day on October 10. Threshold presented The Girl in the Picture Tries to Hang up the Phone written and performed by Hume Baugh, Saturday October 27, 2018 at St. Matthew's United Church (in the parlour) 729 St. Clair Ave. West.
We look forward to getting back on track with our Lunation series and sharing further events with the community In the coming months! All events are free or pay what you can.
