What others are saying about “The Northwest Passage”
David Newland‘s show “The Northwest Passage in Story and Song” has been getting rave reviews as it tours around the province.
Here’s what other people are saying:
- Collingwood Enterprise-Banner: “[The North] is always placed at the top of our maps, say Newland, but it is virtually equidistant from some of the key points on the planet. Life is constantly changing there because of the advances of technology and communication, shipping and the interest in resources bringing about keen interest in politics and sovereign issues. ‘(It’s) a really happening place,’ said Newland. Newland’s show is part lecture, part slideshow with stunning images from some of Canada’s foremost landscape photographers.
- Orangeville Banner: “Newland says the appointment was a huge honour. “I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than to tell Canadian stories and to try to come to a greater appreciation of this land.” That’s exactly what David Newland is doing these days, with a travelling road show that brings the thrill and romance of the Canadian Arctic to audiences across the country. Accompanied by a superb group of musicians, Newland combines stunning photos, video, spoken word and songs based on his three journeys through the Northwest Passage.”
