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

Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival presented in partnership with MainLine Theatre is a 4-day event that aims to present new feminist works. With these works, we create an artistic space that is primed to educate, provoke and inspire change both on the stage and in our daily lives.

A new workshop from MainLine! Sell yourself without selling out. Learn how to craft your brand in order to propel your career forward. Take this straight-forward workshop with MainLine's Executive & Artistic Director Amy Blackmore. The workshop will include important topics including the creation of your own branding, online presence, in-person networking tips, resume/cover letter writing for the arts, interview skills and more!

La scène s'ouvre sur les décombres d'un supermarché sur lequel un immeuble de dix étages vient de s'effondrer. Prisonniers de ce chaos souterrain, séparés par une cloison de béton et sans pouvoir se voir, deux hommes ont survécu. Ensemble, ils vont se soutenir, se découvrir, se confronter et se livrer pour finir par nous offrir au terme de leur aventure une vue sur le paradis.
