St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival and Ground Cover Theatre present the premiere of


Mary escapes the Great Irish Famine in 1847, Sofia flees war-torn Germany in 1947 and Dara bolts from Afghani Taliban rule in 2007. Canada is their new home, but relocation carries with it the struggles and pains of adapting to unfamiliar customs.

Ground Cover Theatre from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan premieres its latest work Displaced created by Natasha Martina and Sue Mythen at the Montreal Fringe Festival June 12-20 at Studio Jean-Valcourt du Conservatoire.


(Top to Bottom) – Emma Laishram, Anna Mazurik & Katie Moore

DISPLACED uses sensuous movement, storytelling and original music (by Gemini Nominee Jason Cullimore), to interweave three immigrant women’s stories through the commonality of place; and although each woman’s journey originates in a different era, their stories connect through their port of entry, their workplace and their adoptive country. Movement, text and music serve as catalysts in unraveling the delicate issues of the human experience arising out of the combination of these three women’s memories and shared spaces.

Directed by Natasha Martina and performances by Emma Laishram, Katie Moore and Anna Mazurik, with costumes by Amberlin Hsu.
