Set inside the Campbell House Museum, a Historical Georgian style building in downtown Toronto, this unique theatre project will feature performances incorporating sound, movement and text inside different rooms.
Audience members will enter the nightmare dream experience of the title character, Simon Dube, an African immigrant haunted by his disconnection to his traditional culture on the eve of returning to the country of his birth to perform the burial rites of his father's funeral. Simon's journey is an evolution of the African self that ebbs into high dreams and terrifying nightmares.
As lines between "race" and "culture" blur, and cultural communities in Canada are merging, people of African descent are forced to find new ways to define themselves. Where else in the world better to host this theatre project than Toronto one of the most multicultural cities of the world?
Playing as part of the 'TD Then and Now Festival' in Celebration of Black History Month.
