Talking to Strangers is a show that explores, through use of oral history, physical theatre, and projected images the similarities and connections between the people of Newfoundland and Quebec, With text taken verbatim from conversations, this show plays with senses of humour and place and looks at how language - each uniquely distinctive - reveals the identity of both. Growing up a Newfoundlander of Cockney parentage and later moving to Quebec, Louise Moyes developed a fascination for accents, stories, and personal as well as contrasting world views. Louise has presented her work across Canada and in Europe.
