Against the Grain Theatre | Identity : A Song Cycle (film)

October 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

An artistic exploration of Self

In early June 2020, Torontonian and baritone Elliot Madore opened up on social media about his struggles with “unabashedly expressing [his] identity” as a biracial person.

AtG Artistic Director Joel Ivany and Elliot Madore came together to find a way to present to the Canadian arts community the universal themes behind Madore’s moving Instagram post. In collaboration with genre-bending composer Dinuk Wijeratne and acclaimed poet Shauntay Grant, AtG and Madore will present a song cycle that sets new and original Canadian poetry to music that fuses classical music with an array of influences.

The film will present the song cycle in its current state of development: showcasing five newly composed songs woven together with stories from Elliot’s life.
