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.

Best English Production - Nomination - Fringe 2017

“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

Love sketch comedy? Love the feeling you get when you don’t know what to expect and raw talent reaches out and punches you in the chest? Then this is the show for you!

Ari Shaffir is a Just for Laughs Festival favourite, with regular appearances on The Nasty Show, live recordings of his comedy podcast The Skeptic Tank, as well as past hosting duties for his long-form storytelling show This is Not Happening on Comedy Central. Now he is bringing you even more raucous laughs with another year of his storyteller series, renamed and reclaimed! Ari selflessly shares what can only be his embarrassingly true real life tales.
