Coming Soon

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.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!

Sexuality is always wrapped up in structures and systems of power. This new verbatim theatre play by Dane Stewart offers an intimate and radically honest examination of sex and power from a queer perspective. Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives. The characters expose the complexities of sexuality as it collides with BDSM, pup play, disability, gender, race, and sex work.
