Play written by CSP's Mark Rosenwinkel
The Concordia University Department of Theatre and Dance presents Stone Hearts by Mark Rosenwinkel, Nov. 8-10 and Nov. 15-17, 2013 at the Graebner Memorial Chapel. The play is a Forgiveness 360 production in collaboration with Spirit in the House. The play will feature Concordia students working side by side with theatre professionals.
Stone Hearts is a coming of age story of Muslim adolescent, set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War in the early 1990’s. Camila is a Bosnian teenager from a small village, living across a variety of cultures, East and West. The sudden onset of a horrific ethnic conflict, however, plunges her entire family into chaos as they are forced to become refugees in their own land. Her tale is narrated by a chorus of Bosnian women, who add details of their own stories as they go. Drawn from research conducted by Dr. Cheryl Robertson in her study Patterns of Survival, the material represents a living testimony of the effects of war on women and families. The genocidal conflict at the core of the story also furnishes the centerpiece of the second annual Forgiveness 360 event, which will include not only the production of Stone Hearts, but a series of speakers, story-telling, and other performances exploring aspects of forgiveness on a societal level.
Forgiveness 360 is a collaboration between The Concordia University Department of Theatre and Dance and Spirit in the House, a non-profit organization producing theater, dance, music, visual and film series events that reflect and encourage understanding of Spiritual Diversity.
