Recently Falen was seen in The River with Nakai Theatre as well as Tout Comme Elle a co-production between Necessary Angel and Luminato. Falen has just completed a performance of Where the Blood Mixes with Saskatchewan Native Theatre.
Falen examines the stories of the past on these performance-based art walks, giving the history gravitas when you are standing in the physical place of where the narratives took place.
In the summer of 2010 Falen presented Invisible Toronto, a walking tour of part of Toronto, sharing several stories all relating to the urban landscape and the people that inhabit it. Falen will present a similar treatment to several spots within the Brantford downtown core, made all the more poignant because these are the places of her youth.
