Local Musical Response to COVID-19
March 30, 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm - A mobile event, no social gathering
A message from Jamii:
As you know, COVID-19 has shaken Jamii to its core values by greatly limiting social connection. But it is of greater importance that we stay home and practice physical distancing to protect lives. At Jamii, we believe it is our social responsibility to care for our community during extraordinary times: as such, we are offering a free live performance to your doorstep to brighten our streets with musical magic.
Jamii’s itinerant theatre, the Kisanii Hub, will be traveling the residential streets of The Esplanade neighbourhood tonight, Monday, March 30, between 5:30pm and 6:30pm, while delivering a musical performance by exquisite singer Domanique Grant.
No outside gathering will take place during this performance, as you are encouraged to watch from your home windows, balconies, doorsteps or front yard. However, you can make some noise as we pass by. That’s encouraged.
We hope to uplift the spirits and contribute to better mental health for us all as we face the challenges of social isolation. A live mobile performance like this can trigger a wide range of heartening emotions, encouraging a sense of community while generally letting people know that we are here for each other.
We can not cover every single streets of our community, but we will try our best to cover as many as possible.
