Three short plays by Nova Scotian playwrights inspired by original Nova Scotian art! Art Attackk! is a “vibrant and fascinating mix of art and theatre”. This funny and endearing show includes a hip hop musical, the story of an unexpected friendship and a eulogy for a cat! Art Attackk! hits kids where they live and demonstrates that art and creativity can help us understand, accept, and express our emotions and connect with others. “[This} wonderful mix of art and plays helped to inform students of the importance of understanding their feelings and positive connections with others. I would recommend to any school looking for an engaging presentation for their students.” (Vice-Principal,Cunard Jr. High).
