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

Coming Soon

Franc-Jeu, la seule troupe de théâtre francophone de l’Université McGill, est fière de vous présenter « Trois Versions de la Vie ». Ce texte de Yasmina Reza raconte une soirée mondaine, où les Finidori arrivent un jour trop tôt. S’en suit trois cinglantes soirées, où les relations entre les personnages s’affinent, se peaufinent, et où chaque facette de l’histoire dépeindra une dynamique différente.

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.

The call for submissions is officially open for the fourth annual Short Works Feminist Theatre Festival.
