Bird BrainsOstracized from Ancient Athens, Pista and Goodie seek refuge from the only place left to go: the island of the Birds. Using physical theater and grotesque Clown, the company will perform selected scenes from Birdbrains, a new comedy loosely inspired by Aristophanes’ Birds.
About Project MercuryUsing a physical, devised theater process and this source text, our ensemble seeks to create a modern allegory that flips Birds on its head. Last year, our team of seven actors and artists created a play about a climate-change apocalypse called Solarplexus, using almost only renewable energy sources. We set out to form an ensemble, in which everyone would contribute to every element of the project they found interesting. To this aim, we found that a slow and thoughtful process gave all artists the opportunity to collaborate, and for ideas to escape from any sense that they were owned by any one individual.

|Daby Toure, Solo
April 13th, 8:00pm
Suggested donation- $15
|Born in Mauritania, and raised in Senegal, Daby Touré lived for more than a quarter century in Paris before moving recently to Montreal. While his father and uncles formed the pioneering Afropop band Toure Kunda, Touré has always followed his own musical path, with influences ranging from African folk melodies and desert blues, to jazz, pop, reggae, funk and soul. Blessed with an open mind and an explorer’s spirit, Touré’s catchy songs are as likely to appeal to fans of African stars Habib Koité and Youssou N’Dour as they are to followers of Bob Marley, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.|
