Everything There is to Know produced by Musicals Canada is the newest musical by playwright Aaron Jensen, playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival. It’s a coming of age, adventure story about Sophie, a 10 year old girl, and the imaginative stories that we tell.
Mind of a Snail Puppet Co.’s newest show, Multiple Organism, had it’s world premiere at the Toronto Fringe Festival this week, and it was a magical display of shadow puppetry. The performance was a feast for the eyes and ears, and was impeccably crafted by co-creators Chloé Ziner and Jessica Gabriel.
Universal Horrors is a contemporary dance performance inspired by classic horror films and their famous monsters, playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Produced by Broken Rhythms Victoria Society, the performance is an intense, spooky delight (or should I say fright!).
Martin Dockery’s one-man show, Delirium, is playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival. It showcases his masterful storytelling, volcanic energy and inspiring spirit. It’s a powerful reflection on love, loss and our place in the universe, and an absolute joy (JOY!) to watch.
Talking Treaties is active and immersive theatre performed at the historical Fort York in Toronto
Talking Treaties calls itself a spectacle and really, it is. Jumblies Theatre is performing the show at Fort York National Historic Site as part of Toronto’s 2017 Indigenous Arts Festival. The show explores Toronto’s Indigenous history and unfolds the origin stories and after effects of three significant treaties.
To endeavour to tell such a vast history onstage could have been overly ambitious, but Talking Treaties delivers. With spirited ensemble performances, the show gives an illuminating presence and voice to the Indigenous peoples that came before us. They drum, they dance, they shout, they sing. And as my fellow show-goer reflected, they inspire.
