"30 Deaf and hearing people put on a unique show, and things get dramatic — even for theatre"
New digital series Seen & Heard, streaming now on CBC Arts, follows the process of casting and staging this mixed English and American Sign Language (ASL) production "The Little Mermaid" by Seeing Voices Montreal. To make things more complex, many of the cast and crew have little or no theatre experience, and most of the Montreal actors use Langue de Signes Québécoise (LSQ) and don't know any ASL or English.

SistersInMotion MTL isn’t just another show. It’s a gathering together of our multi-layered communities that both celebrates and, if we’re open, reshapes who we are. Across our many divisions, we come together as one to make space for the sisters whose narratives we rarely hear: those of Indigenous, Black and racialized women and/or femmes ➳. Join us September 8th for this fourth edition of SistersInMotion as we reconnect to ourselves, one another and the land that has always held us.

“How will we cross the alps? A hot air balloon perhaps?”
This iconic classic comes to hilarious contemporary light in an all-new production featuring incredible physical performances, lightening-speed set changes, razor-sharp dialogue, and…an elephant. Travel across the globe with the clever Phileas Fogg and his astute partner-in-crime Passepartout as they encounter a cast of over twenty characters (played by 3 people!) on this worldly epic adventure. Will they make it before time runs out?

Eighty-five-year-old Marjorie, grappling with fading memories, receives help from a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed back only the best stories of her life. But given the chance, what would we remember, what would we forget? In this wondrous, touching, and clever new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity, collective family memory, and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.

Geordie Productions is presenting "Boys With Cars" on November 25th, Saturday @ 2pm. Commissioned by Nightswimming Theatre, in conjunction with Young People’s Theatre, Toronto.
*Content advisory: explicit language (swearing and sex terminology)
An audacious pair of stories about the lives of young Canadian women, Boys With Cars is set in a Canadian high school where cultures collide, women struggle for status, and dancing raises the temperature of every moment. Featuring classical Indian, Bollywood and hip-hop music and choreography, the piece tells the story of Naznin, a classically trained dancer who dreams of leaving her small town for the bright lights of the city. Here, we are invited into her life and witness her struggle to balance her traditional heritage, her tumultuous relationships with the boys in her high school, and realizing her potential. It is a coming-of-age piece with tremendous comic flourish and potent dances, that is at once bold and innovative while being wildly funny and engaging.
Special Ticket Price: $15 each
