Otesha Project Bike Tour Community Performance: Choices

August 24, 2008 - 1:30am

Theatre troupe changing the world from the seat of their bicycles

The Otesha Project

A group of young cyclists from across Canada will ride into Calgary later this month carrying with them an inspiring message of hope and sustainability. Members of the Otesha Project will perform their award-winning play, Choices, at the Arusha Centre in the Old Y (223 12 Ave SW) on Saturday, August 23 at 7:30 p.m.

The traveling theatre troupe is pedaling 2,000 kilometers across southern British Columbia and Alberta, delivering theatre performances to dozens of communities along the way. On the road, the actors live as a mobile and sustainable community for two months, cycling from performance to performance, braving the elements, connecting with communities along the route, and exploring all the ups and downs of directly addressing environmental and social justice issues through their own every day actions.

The Otesha Project is a youth-run charitable organization that uses theatre to mobilize young people to create local and global change through their daily consumer choices. Otesha troupes have performed to more than 72,000 people across Canada and won international awards for our innovative and effective youth-engagement programs. Six cycling and performing tours are criss-crossing Canada in 2008. Don't miss your opportunity to see one of them!
