“Identity: a Song Cycle” libretto by Shauntay Grant

October 23, 2022 @ 12:00 am - April 23, 2023 @ 12:00 am EDT

An artistic exploration of Self
In early June 2020, Torontonian and baritone Elliot Madore opened up on social media about his struggles with “unabashedly expressing [his] identity” as a biracial person.

AtG Artistic Director Joel Ivany and Elliot Madore came together to find a way to present to the Canadian arts community the universal themes behind Madore’s moving Instagram post. In collaboration with genre-bending composer Dinuk Wijeratne and acclaimed poet Shauntay Grant, AtG and Madore will present a song cycle that sets new and original Canadian poetry to music that fuses classical music with an array of influences.

The film will present the song cycle in its current state of development: showcasing five newly composed songs woven together with stories from Elliot’s life.

Streaming: October 23rd – April 23rd
