Unfold ALC Festival Fall 2021
Unfold, the title and theme of this year’s Arts, Literature and Communication (ALC) Festival, presents creative works by students in the ALC program made in the first semester of in-person learning since March 2020. To unfold is to smooth surfaces, to disclose what is or has been hidden from view, to reveal secrets and potentials. Unfold celebrates the opening up and continuation of our lives as the pandemic starts to wane.
Some of the works in the festival reflect upon the changes undertaken in the last 18 months and speculate on changes still to come. Others address how COVID has altered our customs of interaction with each other and the effects these transformations have had on our family life and friendships. All the works on view remind us that new ways of knowing and being are always unfolding.

Heavy Weather by Lizzie Nunnery is about a young woman who faces the environmental crisis head-on as she embarks on a hero's journey in search of her mother, certainty and hope.
With an ensemble of protestors, onlookers, media, family and allies, Heavy Weather explores the complexity of protest, bias, agenda and manipulation, how to grapple with fear of the future, and self-discovery in how to own one’s power to change and inspire others.
With songs, brilliant humour, heart and truth, Heavy Weather is a timely play resonating with revolution and how, moment to moment, we can reinvent the future.
Playing next Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 6 -9, at 8 p.m.
Tickets must be booked in advance: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Box Office at 514 931-5000.
