1. OFF FOCUS by Lina Rodriguez and Rita Kamacho: 23:17

Wednesday May 2nd, 2007
7:00 to 10:00 PM
The Gladstone Hotel – Second floor 1214 Queen Street West
PWYC - Money collected will go to the Philippine Women Centre of Ontario

Who is taking care of our children and elders? World economic trends have produced a trans-national labour force concentrating international temporary workers in Canada in an exploitative work environment, in most of the cases.

Off Focus seeks to give visibility to Filipino foreign domestic workers and question the labor conditions under the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) in Canada. What does it mean for them to be in a country where they just have the right to work in a specific job, with a specific employee and under his/her roof? How are their families affected by their long separation period?

Through sound, video and performance, this piece invites the audience to be aware of the challenges that foreign domestic laborers encounter as international temporary workers and low-income earners.

Co-sponsors: Philippine Women Centre of Ontario, Filipino Students' Association of Toronto, Filipino Canadian Youth Alliance,

Off Focus is part of the Mayworks Festival, April 28 – May 6.
