Home is a multidisciplinary, site-specific reimagining of Port Credit’s nautical past. The production follows a captain and crew as they experience adventure, recount tales and explore the shores of the Great Lakes through music, dance and theatre.


Home was in part, a response to Canada’s 150th anniversary. Our collaborators visited Heritage Mississauga, met citizens, read local literature and engaged Heritage Mississauga Historian Matthew Wilkinson to develop a story based in local folklore, historical figures and key historic events. We drew inspiration from these sources to design our set based on the schooners of Port Credit’s stone-hooking trade, and our story, which drew on characters such as “Mad Cap” from Port Credit’s past. Home incorporated traditional as well as contemporary song and dance forms. We created a production seeking to embody a past, and contextualize the present...


Where have we been?  Where are we going?
