Wishes in the Wind

Presented by

with FIXT POINT Arts and Media

As we edge closer to a new normal, a powerful sense of hope is surging. To celebrate each step we take, the National Arts Centre English Theatre brought together some of the country’s most inventive artists to create and perform innovative new works with Grand Acts of Great Hope. These acts will inspire and embolden audiences for the brave new world facing us post-pandemic. Performed safely in front of local audiences and later shared online, these works will help prepare us for the safe return when audiences and artists can once again share space together.

Conceived by Artistic Director Lisa Marie DiLiberto, Wishes in the Wind is a soulful parade that captures the struggles and resilience of children. As they criss cross each other along a path carrying rocks with words of worry and flags with declarations of hope, we glimpse into the hearts of young people navigating through this challenging moment together.

Grand Acts of Great Hope was co-curated by NAC English Theatre Artistic Director Jillian Keiley and Boca del Lupo Artistic Director Sherry J Yoon.
