Live From the Living Room with Gum-Dip Theatre
Join ArtsNow for our next installment of Live From the Living Room with Gum-Dip Theatre! Gum-Dip will perform a solo excerpt from their work-in-progress production entitled, “Three Countries, One Mother”, a winner of the 2019 Knight Arts Challenge.
Three Countries, One Mother is a two-year theatrical project by Gum-Dip Theatre that will culminate in a multilingual play.

The play will celebrate the strength and resilience of this communityView more
