.Found is an artistic representation of the poetry of Souvankham Thammavongsa, a Laotian woman born in a refugee camp in northeastern Thailand who immigrated to Toronto. Her dramatic birth and uncertain early life—without a land to call home and without a passport—led to a revelation that is deeply felt by many artists when they discover their medium: “When I learned to read…I knew this, this would be my way in.”Show Times:Saturday, 6:15 p.m., Sheridan Opera HouseSunday, 6:45 p.m., Nugget[vimeo=]
