Beyond the Stage
MY NAME IS… Cross-Cultural Reflections on Identity
During the run of My Name is Asher Lev, the Greenwin Theatre lobby will be animated by the deeply personal and evocative work of Martingrove Collegiate Institute’s Grade 11 and 12 visual art students. This multidisciplinary exhibit features painting, drawing, installation and sculpture, reflecting the play’s universal theme of identity. Studio 180 Theatre and Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company are proud to showcase the incredible talents of Martingrove students, in an exhibit that celebrates the rich diversity of Toronto.
The exhibit is curated by teacher Christina Yarmol and supported by Studio 180 IN CLASS.
