This is a life changing story of mine. I am an immigrant actor from Bangladesh. I have decided to continue my acting career in my new hometown Toronto. I did not know how could I start. Professor Antje Budde, theatre and performance department, U of T gave me the valuable advice and I have started work with digital dramaturge lab founded by Antje. That was the first opportunity to engage with theatre in Toronto. I would love to express my gratitude to professor Antje . Antje is most important guardian and mentor. Without Anjte and her inspiration I would not be able to start theatre activities in Toronto, in my new hometown. Love and respect for my teacher professor Antje Budde.
Riaz, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story about your artistic journey here in Toronto, and your inspiring mentor Antje.
This is a story about my cats. When I was small, I had a cat named Blizzard. She was pure black. She was named that because she showed up in the ‘Blizzard of ’73’. In 1977 Blizzard had kittens on July 4th (living in the states, this was a big deal). Each of them was black with white spots here and there except for one. He was a Russian Blue. We kept him and gave away the rest. We named him J4. Blizzard and J4. Unfortunately, J4 got hit by a car a few years later. We still had Blizzard and added a new kitten, named Toby. Soon after we got Toby, we had to move and find new homes for them. Blizzard went to a farm and Toby went to friends of my father’s. We moved 3x and then were settled again. At that time, the owner of Toby was getting a divorce and we got Toby back! He was our family cat for 22 years.
Thank you for sharing your story, Lynette!
Hola dear all, do you have any activities in Southern Ontario, outdoors, that we as a family or individuals, can attend ? Thank you so much, and may God bless you all, and like they say at business… The Show must go on!
Thanks for your interest in Driftwood! The only outdoor activity we have programmed for this summer are our Outdoor Theatre Workshops, which will be taking place in Bowmanville and Pickering. But we are in the process of developing new safety guidelines that will allow us to resume performing safely in the future, and are hoping to be back onstage soon!
