A Why Not Theatre production by Asha JAIN and Ravi JAIN (2004-2006)

This acclaimed (and very Canadian) laugh-out-loud true story returns after a sold-out extended run this past season. Real-life mother and son, Asha and Ravi Jain, tell the tale of how Ravi’s parents planned a surprise trip to India to intercept him on his vacation and arrange his marriage. Ravi resents the intrusion but, as far as his parents are concerned, it’s time for him to get a wife.

Sunday 25 November to Sunday 16 December 2012
Tuesday 24 January to Sunday 26 February 2012
At Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgman Avenue, Toronto, Canada

CLOUT presents a play created and performed by Mine CERCI (2009-2011), George RAMSAY (2009-2011), Sacha PLAIGE (2009-2011) and Jennifer SWINGLER (2009-2011).

After a five star run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Clout are now exploring the life and works of Russian absurdist writer Daniil Kharms with their second production How a Man Crumbled.
With physical prowess and devilish humour, a bouffon-esque gang caked in clay take us on a joyful and raucous journey through the backstreets of St Petersburg where babushkas fall from windows smashing like porcelain and a cucumber can kill a man.
Switching style and tone the piece goes through expressionist silent film, grotesque humour, slap-stick violence and choreography and all the while dancing on the grave of the ever irreverent genius of nonsense himself, Daniil Kharms.

Text by Jean GENET, directed by Christopher ADAMS (2011-2012) with Hannah GLIKSTEN, Zoë BULLOCK and Alice PORTER.

Claire and Solange fantasise about their Madame's murder in a play of sadomasochistic rituals. 'Yes, at your service once again, Madame! I’m going back to the kitchen. There I’ll find my gloves and the rot of my teeth. The silent stench of the kitchen sink. You’ve got your flowers, but I’ve got my sink. I am the maid...Hands down and show us your fragile neck. Come on, don’t shake, don’t shiver, I’ll work quickly and quietly."Two Maids, One Mistress.

Conception, choreography and perfomance Yana MAIZEL (1997-1999).

"Life is a train station..." wrote Marina Tsvetaeva, one of the greatest 20th century Russian poets. These words means a great deal to the actress,  Yana Maizel, creator and performer of "My name is not Carmen". Born in St Pertersburg, Russia, she immigrated to Toronto where she was raised before moving to Granada, Spain, to immerse herself in the world of the flamenco dance. How does an actress of Russian heritage become a flamenco dancer? Must one abandon one's own cuture to be able to fully embrace another one? "My name is not Carmen" is a one woman's journey between cultures and identities from Russia to Spain, from Canada to France.

Theatre Ad Infinitum presents the Canadian Premiere of the award-winning co-devised pieced directed by Nir PALDi (2005-2007), with music and performance ny Amy NOSTBAKKEN (2005-2007)

The poignant tale of a tormented woman whose search for identity becomes a descent into madness. One woman uses the rich nuances of her unique voice with a distilled style of physical performance to weave together this story of pain, beauty and unceasing internal conflict. Inspired by the lives and work of Virginia Woolf, Silvia Plath and Anne Sexton, Ad Infinitum brings to life this poetic waltz with death. A courageous, remorseless experience that walks you down the fine line between sanity and psychosis.
The Big Smoke is the winner of the ArgusAngel Award at the 2011 Brighton Festival Fringe. Amy Nostbakken is also nominated for a Manchester Theatre Award for Best Studio Performance and was nominated for Female Performer in the Latest Awards, Brighton. The production premiered to rave reviews at the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, leading to a national tour of Britain in spring/summer 2011 that included stops in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Oxford and Leeds.
