Stand Festival - Made in Canada
Approximate running time: 2 hours
333 Chesterfield Avenue
North Vancouver BC V7M 3G9
Originally slated as a live theatre show titled Made in Canada: an agricultural operetta, the work has evolved into an album featuring 10 songs composed by Mishelle Cuttler.
Blending mariachi influences with lyrics sourced from the words of seasonal temporary foreign workers, news articles, and legal text surrounding the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, Made in Canada, an agricultural song cycle braids a musical journey that amplifies the narratives of the people who harvest our food and nourish us throughout the pandemic.
