Vibrant

When Melissa comes forward with the story of her sexual assault in grade 12, instead of support, she finds instead a fight against the school she loved, an administration she trusted, and classmates she valued. A story of healing, recovery, and most importantly color, Vibrant is a true story of the Calgary education system. Told from the perspective of a college age Melissa, this piece plays with colored paint and movement to ask the question: when the people in charge won't protect you, who will? The show is approximately an hour and will be a ticketed event. Content note: talk of sexual assault, use of colored smoke.

Wastelands

In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the last human on earth is stranded in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating pile of refuse in the middle of the ocean. Amidst acid rain, suffocating smog, and the gradual disintegration of the trash beneath her feet, she tells her final tale, using improvised garbage puppets, and really, really bad poetry. Listen to her story in the back alley, next to a dumpster, and behold: the end of the world. Content note: strong language, very bad poetry

Theatre Series: Helen

Written by Megan Couch
Directed by Madeleine Taylor-Gregg

Helen retells the myth of Helen of Troy. It chronicles her struggle to come to terms with the abuse inflicted on her by various men in her life, and with her role as the catalyst of the Trojan War. As she attempts to find agency in the fate imposed on her by the gods, she finds unexpected comfort and solidarity in the support of the prophetess Cassandra and a chorus of five female slaves. Helen explores ideas of agency, guilt, and fear, while asking us why we prioritize men’s stories over women’s, and what we miss when we do so. Content Warning: Sexual Content, Violent Content.

The Opposite

Between November 4, 2015 and February 29, 2016, Canada resettled more than 25,000 Syrian refugees, following the outbreak of civil war growing out of the 2011 Arab Spring protests. But what if war arrived much closer to home? What if Calgary became a warzone, and we were all forced to flee our homes and become refugees? Aldib, a Syrian theatre artist who now lives in Calgary, provokes audiences to ask these hard questions, and see the world as a refugee. This piece aims to help Canadians feel what it means to be a refugee, what it means to leave your country in a hard situation, to leave everything behind and start anew.
