“If A Place Could Be Made” – The story of the Daly family and their 12 children (Gander)

“If A Place Could Be Made” brings the story of the Daly family and their 12 children to Gander, as part of week-long artist residency at the Joseph R. Smallwood Arts and Culture Centre.

The Daly Family Collective, the Dalys’ great-granddaughter (and great-niece), singer-songwriter Diana Daly, dancer-storyteller Louise Moyes, and choreographer-director Anne Troake, have been asked to tell their stories. Diana and Louise perform in the 75-minute show.

“If a Place Could Be Made” is a story about family, strong personalities, great faith, inclusion, expansion, and making the best out of what we have been given.

The Daly Family Collective will be in residence at the Joseph R. Smallwood Arts and Culture Centre in Gander from February 16–22, culminating in a public performance on February 22. While they are in Gander, they will be performing a student matinee of the show, which focuses on strong themes of inclusion, on February 21. This student matinee will be free of charge for students and teachers, as part of the new TD Student Access Program. They will also be leading hands-on workshops with community groups throughout the week, including Gander Dance Studio, Kim Wiseman Performing Arts Studio, and Beyond the Overpass Theatre.

The performance of “If A Place Could Be Made” will begin at 8:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Gander Arts and Culture Centre box office (709-256-1081) and online at artsandculturecentre.com.
