DeAnne Smith: Post Joke Era

Just For Laughs

Company website

The comedy you need when the world is a joke. Its hard to stay positive in a world filled with misogyny, racism, and rising nationalism but gosh darn it if we ain't gonna try! Melbourne's The Music calls Post Joke Era, "a virtuoso display of smart, slick, silly brilliance - a metaphorical (and literal) mic-drop of a show," giving it five stars, while UK's Chortle calls Smith, "always relevant, but never reverent." This Canadian/American gentleman elf isn't fucking around. You should see this.

Histoire de se mettre dans le bain et d’être prêt à affronter le traditionnel marathon de partys du temps des Fêtes, racontez-nous vos classiques familiaux! Qui sont les personnages légendaires de votre famille? Quels sont les récits connus et répétés d’un bout à l’autre de votre parenté? Présentez-nous votre grand-père, votre mère ou votre cousine, nous sommes impatients de les connaître. En décembre, on plonge au cœur de cette source inépuisable d’inspiration : la famille!

Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development. Throughout this workshop the rules of clown emerge giving participants a fundamental understanding of clown, and a deeper awareness of their own performance and creation skills.

After the death of their mother, siblings Max and Kate have not seen each other since. Now, Kate is about to get married and so Max decides to take a trip back down to hell, AKA his father's farm. To Max's surprise, Kate's fiancé, Michael has taken over the place and is tending to the cows with his brother Joshua. As a result, tensions will rise as the city boy faces his estranged family in ways that may divide them before the wedding. Fake smiles can't last long as the characters uncover each other's secrets.
