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 look forward to this annual event’s perennial favourites, like Gumboot, Ukrainian dance and the Pearson College Choir, in addition to new performances every year. 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 students learn to live, learn and grow together. Join us for this international artistic experience that has come to symbolize the power of creative expression.
