Details about the Productions:


Program A


glitter glue (i am filled with uncontrollable rage)
Step into the whimsical, sickly sweet world of glitter glue (i am filled with uncontrollable rage). Here youll find a mermaid playing dress-up, a princess and a frat guy busting a move in the club, an omnipotent babydoll wreaking havoc, and more. Join Gen (shes not like other girls) as she navigates her inner turmoil through this surreal world, guided by Princess (theyre closelike really close). The question on her and everyones mind: What is the most just way for a woman to behave?
in MB 7.425

if only
A fascination with "if only just-" has led our ensemble into an investigation of a world of regret, hope, time and desire. *If only* (in italics) regards unchanging in a delicate world constructed to avoid growth through repetition and perfection. We are discovering the trappings of an inner world riddled with its own laws, layers and gravity, and noticing the characters that live within it.

Program B


Just a Rube Goldberg Machine
A girl. A hospital. A cornucopia of clowns. And an unlit birthday candle. Drawing inspiration from childrens television, trinkets, and needless complication, Just a Rube Goldberg Machine is a joyful, colourful, chaotic exploration of taking a simple task to its extremes and finding fun along the way.

DE-PATTERN
A Play, A Place Down The Road, A Locked Door, A Cow What is morally right? When does the justification for science and advancement move in an unethical direction? DE-PATTERN is an absurdist creation piece that explores themes of medical ethics, disability exploitation, and human testing in relation to the Montreal Experiments that took place at McGill University and the unjust actions of its head professor, Dr. Donald Ewan Cameron. During the 50s and 60s, Cameron was funded by the CIA to conduct mind control and brainwashing experiments at the university. Unethical experimentation like LSD forced comas and physical and mental assault all for the purposes of wiping their minds and curing their mental disorders. The piece itself is a retelling of these unjust events, combining choral storytelling and movement work with political satire and text-based drama. Let's explore a dark side of Montreal academia that has been lost to time, and see if there are any patterns. Dont forget to count them. "These are the days and ours are the occasions".
