Silenced is presented in partnership with the rEvolver Theatre Festival. 

Silenced is an interdisciplinary work by the Urban Ink Collective that examines lives and stories silenced within our communities. It explores the choices we make as friends, neighbours, and witnesses that make us either complicit in silencing or engaged in demanding and building social equality. Silenced is a collaborative creation by the Collective, a group of emerging artists with a passion for storytelling and shared commitment to advance the diversity of voices on the Canadian stage.
