1784: (Un)Settling Antigonish

A participatory theatrical and musical pilgrimage that will transport you back to 1784 and the first permanent European settlement of Antigonish — the landing of Colonel Timothy Hierlihy and his company of United Empire Loyalists at Antigonish Harbour, homeland of the Mi’kmaq.

Pilgrims all, we’ll resound to Mi’kmaq and Irish songs and rituals, featuring the harp music of the Hierlihy family’s native Ireland. In the way of pilgrims, we will settle—or unsettle—for ourselves the past and the present of the place we call Antigonish.

A healthy community knows its history

The Road Home – March Performances Cancelled

NOTE – The March performances are cancelled.
We expect to perform again in the fall of 2015. Stay tuned for details.

Through the Eldertree Project, writers gathered stories from elders at the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home and Highland-Crest Home. This gathering of tales, songs, and dances culminated in “The Road Home,” a performance that will be shown again this March at the Bauer Theatre (St. Francis Xavier University).

From tales about what it was like to fiddle with some of the best in Cape Breton to the life of one of the greats in Canadian country music, “The Road Home” covers storied ground. It pictures life in rural Nova Scotia, revealing what it was like to grow up, raise families, work, and relax with music and square dancing in a place that was vital to so many.

Eldertree Community Performances

Mark December 2nd and 9th on your calendars! Those involved with the Eldertree Project through Arts Health Antigonish have gathered stories and songs of elders at Highland-Crest Home and the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home. Now they are working hard to put on several community performances. Anne Simpson and Stacy Doiron, point out that “the culmination of the project is coming soon” and that “everyone in Antigonish will want to see it”.

Mary Beth Carty, Stacy Doiron, Donald MacLennan, Noella Murphy and Rebecca Wild are set to give several rousing, humorous, poignant, and truly memorable performances in early December.

The first Eldertree Project performance for the community will be at 7 pm on Tuesday, December 2nd at the Clare Marie Auditorium at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital and the second performance will be at 7 pm on Tuesday, December 9th at the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home.
