The Makings of a Voice
written and performed by Dana Wylie
February 11 at 8:45pm
in the Backstage Theatre
A public reading of a new musical performance in development by Edmonton musician and theatre artist Dana Wylie about discovering our individual identity within generational narratives. A personal and intimate journey that sits in a fluid place somewhere between the past and the present, between motherhood and daughterhood, between music and monologue.
Dana Wylie is a musician and theatre artist whose original work is rootsy, spacious, thought-provoking and relentlessly honest. Her fifth and latest album, The Earth That You’re Made Of, garnered her a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Contemporary Singer of the Year, and her work in theatre – as an actor, singer, writer, and musical director – has earned her four Sterling Award nominations. She is also the immeasurably proud and generally overwhelmed mother of seven-year-old Anna and 16-month-old Grayson.
