Performance Information


If A Place Could Be Made

Kitty and Daniel Daly of Riverhead St. Mary’s Bay, Newfoundland had twelve children, six of whom were very tall, and mythologized as giants, and six of whom were persons of short stature, formerly known as dwarfism or little people. Most of them had disabilities.

They were also resilient and funny people, and from a time where, we are told, "if a place could be made" for people in Newfoundland with physical challenges, more often it was.

Our collective, the Dalys’ great-granddaughter (and great-niece), singer-songwriter Diana Daly, dancer-actor Louise Moyes, and director-choreographer Anne Troake, have been asked to tell their stories. 

Louise Moyes & Diana Daly

In a journey of friendship and song, Diana and Louise bring the Daly family’s memories to life through powerful images, tales, songs, dance,  laughter, and a bit of Carlton Showband! If a Place Could Be Made is a story about family, strong personalities, great faith, inclusion, expansion, and making the best out of what we have been given.
