CTV News Interviews CCASA tonight at 6PM

Tonight on CTV Calgary’s (Channel 3) 6:00 news, both CCASA and Ellipsis Tree Collective will be featured for their involvement in the exciting new play “Ruined” which deals with the atrocities of sexual violence and war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ruined is the 2009 Pulitzer Prize winning play by Lynn Nottage being performed at the Lunchbox Theater through Ellipsis Tree Collective (ETC), an Afrocentric theater company founded by local AfroCarribean Canadian female artists. The story, which highlights Mama Nadi, a women in the midst of the Congo civil war running a bar and brothel is described by the Chicago Tribune as ‘Sincere, passionate, and courageous, Ruined is a remarkable theatrical accomplishment.’

The issues in this play might sound worlds away from here but in reality they have a direct impact on thousands of people living here in Calgary who have experienced these horrible acts in their home countries. Not only do these issues affect immigrants and their families but they closely mirror what is going on in our own communities. The choices we make and the choices we are unable to make and the impact those decisions will make on the rest of our lives.

CCASA’s executive director Danielle Aubry was interviewed regarding CCASA’s involvement with ETC and their production of Ruined. Tune in to find out why this play is so important on both a global and local level.
