April 12, 2013 Leave a comment

A promo video for Mothership Stories Society  to go to Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa with a Indiegogo campaign was filmed recently by AHA MEDIA with ACCESS TV under Direction of Waterline Productions

Mothership Stories Society is a non-profit society that asks people to write the story of their mother’ lives. From these stories we have created theatre, books and an online Archive.( We want to share and celebrate the extraordinary lives of ordinary women with the world.

My Mother’s Story, the theatrical version of our project was created by Marilyn Norry (actor, dramaturg and Mothership Artistic Director) and Jenn Griffin (award winning playwright and actor). Under commission from a professional theatre we custom make a script from lifestories written by women in a community about their mothers.  Help us share the extraordinary lives of ordinary women by getting us to the Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa!

Please donate to Mothership Stories Society: My Mother’s Story Indiegogo campaign to go to Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa!!
