momondays® Winnipeg

September 19, 2016

Put story-telling into a blender, adding a dash of personal growth, and drop in a load of laughs…

Then mix in real, live music, and great conversation with some of the nicest people in the city (maybe on the planet!) then push the ‘high’ setting… and out comes momondays!

Momondays is a like a variety show bouncing off the walls of personal story-telling!

Get ready for laughs and to be inspired and entertained!

Talent for the show includes:

Helene Massicotte

Hélène holds an MBA from the U of Manitoba and a BA in Kinesiology from the U of Winnipeg. This unique combination has enabled her to coach and write about all areas of lifestyle including both physical and fiscal fitness to enable others to live life on their terms. Hélène is an avid reader, enjoys travel, and appreciates every opportunity to try something new.

Joanna Hawkins

A U of Manitoba Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate, Joanna feels a strong connection to the arts. She is a skilled artist (drawing and painting), graphic designer, and photographer but her real dream has been with acting. Joanna was denied access to performing arts education being told that the Deaf were unable to become actors which is entirely untrue as she is now in mime.

Suzanne is an adventurer who has traveled the world, exploring all the joy and beauty life has to offer. She worked in the Deaf Community for three decades, is a Spiritual Director, and a blogger.

Christine Spink-Mitchell

Christine is a Deaf Storyteller and has been telling her stories in American Sign Language to audiences for over 20 years.

A Hundred Decibels

100 Decibels is a high-energy Physical Comedy troupe that is comprised of a diverse group of Deaf artists.

Their aim is not only to entertain audiences with their incredibly crisp and clean physical illusions but to reach-out with the beauty of Deaf Culture and build bridges between the hearing and Deaf worlds
