Road Trip
Susie Burpee (Toronto) & Linnea Swan (Calgary)

 Road Trip seamlessly integrates dance, theatre and Bouffon to create a distinct and irreverent aesthetic. The audience is taken on an exhilarating ride where two women wrestle with the ephemeral, their mortality, and each other on a tragicomic odyssey to the unknown.

... ravaged by ambivalence and unresolved feminine rivalry. Bouffon and dramatic tension combine in an ambiance reminiscent of David Lynch and Monty Python. Deliciously extravagant.” - Festival TransAmerique

 

 I AM A GENIUS does anyone here know me?
Lois Brown (St.John's)

Microphones, paper, foil wrap, and an out-dated dictionary Lois inherited after her Dad died of dementia create a sonic choreography in I AM A GENIUS does anyone here know me?
Lois Brown and James O’Callaghan invite the audience into a playful investigation of memory, patience, boredom, democratization, things and relationality.

"Simultaneously delights and renders awestruck. You sit in your seat hugging yourself or a neighbour at the joy of its comedic philosophy and imagery. " — Louise Moyes, Dancer
