Silver Kite Community Arts is proud to present its original intergenerational theatre production of Umbrella.
Based on the life stories of the Intergenerational Theatre Company (ITC) members (ages 17 - 80), the performance explores the commonalities and differences among generations by the telling of the cast's life experiences through music, dance, dramatic and comedic scenes, and monologues.
By using the common object of an umbrella, the cast used a unique process of dramatic play, reminiscence, and storytelling to create the performance. Some of the themes explored in the piece include: opening / closing, family, shelter, hiding, protection, and home.
The 5 men and women in Silver Kite's ITC each represent a different decade of life, bringing unique experiences and insights onto the stage.
