Elisa's Skin

A woman sits in a Brussels café, telling delicate tales of love. She insists on the minute and most intimate details: the beating heart, the sweaty palms, the skin that shivers to the touch. Little by little, through her portraits, she reveals what it is that drives her to tell stories and lets us in on the strange secret, shared with her one day by a young man in a coffee shop.

Carole Fréchette's Elisa's Skin was performed in Vancouver and taken on tour including at the National Arts Centre as part of The Magnetic North Theatre Festival in 2005.

Mump and Smoot in Flux

THESE CLOWNS OF HORROR REVEL IN A SHADOWY, ANARCHIC WORLD

Mump & Smoot are in flux as they return to the Ummonian wilderness they love so much, in search of spiritual renewal. Here, they hope to achieve a sense of balance in their hectic yet always adventurous existence so they can successfully deal with their ever-crumbling world. Throughout this journey their abilities to survive emotionally, spiritually, and physically are put to the test.

Disco Pigs

Playwright Enda Walsh's high energy joy-ride Disco Pigs was originally staged in Cork, Ireland by Corcadorca Theatre. Two Irish kids, Pig and Runt are born at almost the same time in the same Dublin hospital - spiritual twins of different mothers - and grow up next door to each other. Insulated by their devotion to each other, the pair forge an almost telepathic bond while their intense relationship is expressed in a language that becomes aggressive, angular and deformed.

Director: Del Surjik.

Featuring: Kevin MacDonald and Jennifer Mawhinney
