Pearle Harbour's Chautauqua


Do you feel lost? Are you troubled? Are you behind on your emails? Do you yearn for community that enhances, rather than annihilates, the feeling of being a true individual? The world is full of uncertainty and inharmony, but for one week only, salvation is passing through [your town/city/municipality]! Gather together with our new leader, all-American World-Wartime gal Pearle Harbour, under the milky canvas of our beautiful tent. We will sing together, learn together, breathe together, and live our Truths! In our Chautauqua tent, we come together because we’re falling apart.

Pearle Harbour’s Chautauqua is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council and the Government of Canada.
