Born and raised in Argentina, Marta Singh was forged into storytelling in Ottawa. Her solo work lends language, body and voice to what comes forth when fairylore meets personal narrative. The Geography Teacher’s Orders was developed thanks to two grants awarded to her by the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council.
