COMING SOON | The Room Nobody Knows

"A ONE-MAN PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIP INTO THE UNDERBELLY OF OUR DESIRES."

The Room Nobody Knows

Niwa Gekidan Penino

Enter a surreal fever dream in this psycho-erotic tale from modern Japan. Overworked and undersexed, a fatigued student’s brain conjures the bizarre tale of two brothers and their un-nameable erotic fantasies. Their comically claustrophobic world plays out on a candy-colored, meticulously constructed miniature set replete with pig faces, giant phalluses and secret compartments. 

Usually Beauty Fails

Frédérick Gravel / Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup

Following in the grand Montreal dance tradition of La La La Human Steps and Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Frédérick Gravel and his hot-blooded team of dancers/musicians mix genres in a performance where philosophy meets the dancefloor.  Unstoppable physicality, live music and a pop-culture aesthetic work to create a profound rumination on sex and love.

There There

Kristen Kosmas

Christopher Walken falls off a ladder in Russia and is unable to perform his Chekhov-inspired solo show. Karen, who apparently proofread the script once, is asked to go on in Walken’s place. A precarious bilingual performance duet ensues between Karen and her Russian interpreter, Leo. There There is a wildly unpredictable theatrical roller coaster about being the completely wrong person in the totally wrong place at the exact wrong time saying and doing all the most wrong things.
