"The Darkness of 100 Days" went to Ottawa. We met many Rwandan survivors including their ambassador and really cool people like Willy, Joe and my favourite Oscar. I'm not even going to go into detail about meeting them or how they felt when they saw the play, especially because none of you bothered to see it, but I am going to say that I am proud that I was involved in the play and that we are their voices. I think I may attached pictures later, or if anyone is interested check out the schools very small, superficial blurb (http://www.tcs.on.ca/news/darkness.htm.
Below is an add from an Ottawa paper:
Remembering Rwanda: Bank and Wellington Streets; Parliament Hill; and Saint Paul University, 223 Main St. (613-748-5265; www.humra.ca) 11:45 a.m. 9:30p.m. A series of events take place today to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. A solidarity walk in memory of the victims starts at 11:45 a.m. the intersection of Bank St. at Wellington St., followed by a ceremony at Parliament Hill at noon. Later, the play "The Darkness of One Hundred Days" will be performed at Saint Paul University.
And finally a press release:
Well, Walker might be planning a trip to Rwanda, its all very hush-hush still, but even if we got a small group together and went and helped out or something, I think it would be amazing.
Right, Happy Easter and cheers!
