Every good project begins with a plan. Our plan for this ethnodrama is to stage what we are referring to as “a taste of” short preview performance of the ethnodrama “Who Cares?” (working title). This preview evening will be comprised of introductory and contextual talks about the research process, challenges and issues concerning caregiving, our goals and what we set out to achieve….and a 40 – 45 min. preview of the play which will be made up of narratives and short monologues performed by actors. (Read about the team) A panel discussion will follow with opportunities for audience and actor reflection and feedback. Reception to follow. The goal is for this preview version of the ethnodrama to lead to creative development and production of a full length ethnodrama which will be staged in late 2016 and later to produce a film based on the ethnodrama.
