FemFest 2019

FemFest 2019 posters (dragged)  FemFest 2019: All the World’s a Stage’s presentation of Raising Stanley/Life with Tulia by Kim Kilpatrick, Karen Bailey, and Bronwyn Steinberg. The play is performed by storyteller Kim Kilpatrick with her guide dog Tulia joining her on stage. Kilpatrick asks – is a guide dog just a dog that works, or are they more than that? She tells stories of the four guide dogs she has handled, accompanied by Karen Bailey’s paintings of the puppy she raised for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind — guiding you on the journey from energetic puppy to working dog for the blind. Whether your experience is through sound, sight, or the combination of both, you are fully included in the stories, the paintings, and the stories behind the paintings in this theatrical collaboration. Open audio description is also built into every performance. Plus, you can never go wrong with a dog on stage. The show will be presented at the Asper Centre for Theatre and Film (at The University of Winnipeg, 400 Colony Street) on September 15 at 2:00 pm, September 16 at 8:30 pm, and September 17 at 6:30 pm. 

ASL Interpretation will be provided for the September 15th show at 2pm by Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba.
