In our own backyards is a dance-theatre piece that dives into the memories of a second generation Muslim Canadian woman living in Quebec. Her story is told through movement, English text, music, and American Sign Language and assembles fragments of her past experiences, all while exposing the multiple levels of oppression in our society that all too often go unnoticed.

Choreographed by Alida Esmail and Sophia Wright
Written by Alida Esmail
Performed by Alida Esmail and Nathalie Kirpaul
Interpreted by Brooke Nancekivell (English to ASL) and Jennifer Roberts (ASL to English)
Original Music composed by Shawn Mativetsky and David Ogborn
*This piece is accessible to Deaf audiences.
