Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers Makambe K Simamba (Calgary)
February 26, 2012, Florida. A 17-year-old black boy wearing a hoodie leaves a 7/11 carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea. He never makes it home. Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers invites us to enter the world of an infamous teen, relive his last moments, and face the intricacy of his dance into the afterlife.
Jezebel, at the Still Point , Bumble Bear Productions/Ainsley Hillyard (Edmonton)
Obsessed with traveling to the past, an astronaut and her French Bulldog, Jezebel, explore the universe trying to unravel the mysteries behind time travel. From distant galaxies full of non- verbal life forms, all the way to Portland, Oregon, the astronaut is desperately searching to crack the code. A tale of adventure, heroism, mortality and love, it is a modern-day Turner and Hooch… meets Space Jam… meets Einstein’s theory of relativity. An interweaving of text, movement and a literally untrained French Bulldog - each show is a new adventure.
This show is presented by Intrepid Theatre as part of solo performance festival UNO Fest (May 9 -19). A post-show discussion will follow this performance.
