About the Theatre Piece from Director, Donna Marie Baratta:
Named as an ode to the beginning of the 2nd wave of immigration to Canada which was mostly from 1950 but it was in response to the end of the war, so  ’45 is the way to go. Movement – because just like in a musical movement – they can be performed separately but a performance of the whole work requires all the movements to be performed in succession. To me – they only carry the right meaning in succession.  Also, a movement can have a variety of styles/tempos within a long classical piece – I feel like these women had a variety of movements in their lives and I want to honour that change and growth.
