SPIN

written and performed by Evalyn Parry

a tour-de-force performance celebrating the Bicycle

One part documentary and another part musical activism, Spin is inspired in part by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1895. parry spins a fascinating web of stories that travel from 19th-century women’s emancipation to 21st-century consumer culture, peeling back layers of history to reveal a surprising and contemporary heart to her theme of liberation.

A vintage bicycle, hooked up to simple electronics and suspended in a mechanic’s stand, is played – from fenders to spokes to vinyl seat, from whirling pedals to bells – by percussionist Brad Hart, providing a captivating sonic accompaniment to parry’s songs and monologues. Staged by award-winning director Ruth Madoc-Jones, with stunning visual projections by acclaimed designer Beth Kates, this unique show has delighted audiences across the continent.

Black History Month

My Place is Right Here – Hugh Burnett & the Fight for a Better Canada

A original play written by Aaron Haddad, and performed by the Flex We Talent Players. The powerful story of one of Canada’s first civil rights activists. Hugh Burnett was a key figure in the fight for anti-discrimination legislation in Ontario. Through the 1940s and early 1950s, he organized tirelessly against racial discrimination in public service in his hometown of Dresden, Ontario, rising to prominence as a leader and organizer of the National Unity Association (NUA), a coalition of black community members who advocated for equal rights.

Suitcase

written and performed by Ahmad Meree

Home, belonging, and leaving.

Suitcase tells the story of a Syrian couple, Razan and Samer, who are leaving their country.

But how?

And where to?

We follow along as they journey to their new destination in anticipation of what will come next, carrying whatever they can in their suitcase. But can a suitcase fit everything migrants need to take?
