This year’s event will feature a theatrical production, We Are Not the Others. This play was created by Dr. Mirna Carranza from the McMaster School of Social Work, and Izad Etemadi, an award-winning Toronto-based actor and playwright. It is based on the findings of a two-year research project examining immigrant women’s experiences, and was first presented at the Hamilton Fringe Festival in July 2017.
This production humanizes the stories we read and hear about in the media, and brings us into the world of immigrant women. Using music, poetry and the real words of these women, We Are Not the Others brings you the struggles, pain, resiliency and hopes of immigrants everywhere.
Following the production, Mirna Carranza and Izad Etemadi, as well as the actresses, will be available to answer questions about the research on which the play was based, the development of the production, and the experience of producing it.
