A unique theatre experience is coming to Calgary and Brooks this summer, as real stories of the Temporary Foreign Worker program are told in a live documentary style. Actors will re-enact real people by bringing their lived experiences to the theatrical stage. Created by Col Cseke and directed by Mieko Ouchi, the production Parts & Labour runs from July 1 – 9 at West Village Theatre in Calgary, before moving to Brooks, Alberta for additional performances.
Parts & Labour includes story of a butcher in Mexico who checked the label of the beef he was selling and had to Google where Brooks, Alberta was, only to end up working there in the future.
