One World
A celebration of diversity through music, stories and dance 

This year's spring performance will take place on March 4 & 5, 2016 at the McPherson Playhouse (new venue)


Relive the magic, or see this past year's event for the first time with special videos of the event (click the images to your right), thanks to the Pearson College One World student film crew — Aziz, Ali, Amina, Sunny and Hanne. 

Together, we are One World

Each spring, the students of Pearson College UWC share the music, dance and stories of their homelands and their experiences at One World — an inspiring cumulation of dance, song and international collaboration. This rare showcase brings the theatrical art of 80 different countries right to Victoria’s doorstep. All students work together to create each aspect of this production — from choreography and writing, to costumes, lighting, sound and tech.

Audiences can look forward to this annual event’s perennial favourites, including Gumboot, Ukrainian dance and the Pearson College Choir, in addition to new performances. One World allows the students to join together and share in a challenging — yet ultimately rewarding — creative experience, and is one more way that Pearson College UWC students learn to live and work together. Join us for this international artistic experience that has come to symbolize the power of creative expression.
