FRINGE ENCORE - tldr;smh

MainLine Theatre & Burcu Emeç

Travelling all the way from Rojava, Lady Jîyan brings you the finest sounds of Kurdistan, inviting you into her world of pop stardom, womxn fighters, and shadow theatre; the magical, the performative, and the hallucinatory. A one-woman interdisciplinary show curious about Middle-Eastern feminism, brownness, Kurdish-Canadian identity, and survival.

“modern, relevant, and a perfect example of how art can and should deal with important subjects to incite change. [...]
A truly unique creation, inspiring both in its artistry and its content, it is a must-see for all women of color, women in general, or people of any gender who care about the women in their lives. [...]”
– Montreal Theatre Hub

“Kurdish Lady Jiyan is a magnet on stage with her sinuous moves as she seems to delight in removing her headscarf. […]
This is strong, feminist, and hypnotizing.”
– Montreal Rampage

A worthy but impecunious young man has met the girl of his dreams. There's just one hitch - she's a courtesan, and she's about to be sold to a rich soldier from abroad. Can a wily, witty, fast-taking servant find a way to bring this farce to a happy ending? The 2,000-year-old Roman comedy gets a 1930s makeover in this new translation by Celia Taylor and Manuela Galindo. Recommended for ages 12+.
