Louise Moyes – At Home Here in Newfoundland & Labrador

Occupation: Performer of One-woman shows

Place of Birth: St. John’s, NL

Currently Resides: St. John’s, NL

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

My kitchen – Auntie Crae’s coffee – or Jumping Bean.

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?

The Ship Pub (formerly Ship Inn). My first pint there was milk. I was 18 and a little too honest.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

Johnny Ruth on Water St (that Kim knows how to choose clothes!) and Joe at Dominion – two ends of the spectrum….. Plus Value Village.

Where in Newfoundland would we stand to see your favourite view?

The harbour, from Long’s Hill.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Swim at Beachy Cove, Conception Bay (yes, in the ocean)

2. Swim at Cape Broyle Bridge (you can tell we’ve been having a hot summer!)

3. Visit the Port-au-Port peninsula on the West coast, whose stunning views and Franco-acadienne culture are not well known.

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

We not only have the physical beauty that we are becoming famous for, but because of our connections to other countries through our seaports and history, we are worldly in surprising ways - yet our strong community keeps us very much grounded, and connected to others here.

You can see it reflected back when people visit Newfoundland and Labrador. They are moved and blown away by the direct, frank and warm gaze and conversations they receive.

  1. I can't wait to see Louise reprise My Secret Pig and St. John's Women September 19-22. And her new docudance premiers on October 11 at Neighbourhood Dance Works' Festival of New Dance (October 9-14) in St. John's. Treats all fall from a beautiful dancer.
