This nine-member production (three actors and six dancers) examines man’s search for identity and belonging and was inspired by the students of Nelson Mandela Public School in Toronto who are a high risk body of children having come from broken homes, living in a depressed economic community and dealing with constant exposure to man’s destructive behavior (crime, drug use, alcoholism, etc.). On October 28th OMO Dance Company will be presenting Diary of Exile at Masaryk Cowan at 7:30pm
