    Created by Marisa Emma Smith, Amber Funk Barton, Malcolm Dow, Patrick Dodd, Siobhan Sloane-Seale, Yvonne Wallace, and Jessica Mary Keenan, with mentorship from Sahar Assaf, Tim Carlson and Mindy Parfitt.

    A very special thank you to the many interviewees who have chosen to share their stories and opinions for this multi-perspectival piece.

    #whatnow is a workshop production of a multi-perspectival documentary theatre and dance creation in response to the #metoo movement developed in partnership with Good Night Out Vancouver. After collecting hours of audio interviews from all over Vancouver, real life stories and feelings come to life through the mediums of headphone verbatim theatre and movement.

    After #metoo, what now?

    A question for everyone.

    Running approximately 60 minutes, each workshop presentation will be followed by a professionally facilitated post-performance engagement. Emotional support for audience and artists provided by Monica Nijjar and Angela Caruk. $2 from every ticket will be donated to our community partner Good Night Out Vancouver.
