Corps Bara Professional Company

As part of Alberta Culture Days, Corps Bara invites you to the Leighton Art Centre to see a sneak preview of Daily Bread created for this seasons performance of Thin Places. "To me thin places represented those profound moments, often unexpected, when the veil between the spiritual and everyday world seems to lift briefly and one gets and intangible sense of the other side... I began to reflect upon thin places in my own home life and recollections of feeding my family, my marriage, the births of my children, and deaths of my sister and parents came to mind. In the confluence of these ideas,   Daily Bread took shape." This is a free event also including a Paint-Out, a stunning mountain landscape, art galleries and the Holy Crepe food truck.
