Swimming Solo

Autodidacts Concordia Theatre (A.C.T.)

Company website

Un groupe de jeunes adultes se réunissent pour une fête. Un poisson est trouvé mort. Ceci sont les conditions parfaites pour une nuit que le groupe ne va jamais oublier, lorsqu'une enquête pour retrouver le 'meutrier' de l'animal se déroule hors de contrôle et les tensions entrent les amis se révèlent parmi des drames de télé et des hallucinations de drogues. Alors qu'ils se confrontent avec leurs émotions d'amour, de désespoir et de séparation, les liens entre les amis seront testés. Une pièce à propos de l'âge et tout abandonner, "Swimming Solo" va vous vendre heureux, triste, et peut-être confus.

***
A group of young adults are gathered in an apartment for their friend's going away party. A pet fish is found dead. So begins a night the group will never forget, as a man-hunt for the fish-killer spirals out of control and the real tensions between the friends swim to surface amid tele-novella drama and drug-addled hallucinations. As they confront each other with their feelings of love, despair and separation, the bonds they share will be tested. A play about growing up and moving on, "Swimming Solo" is sure to get you laughing, crying, and maybe confused.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!

Sexuality is always wrapped up in structures and systems of power. This new verbatim theatre play by Dane Stewart offers an intimate and radically honest examination of sex and power from a queer perspective. Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives. The characters expose the complexities of sexuality as it collides with BDSM, pup play, disability, gender, race, and sex work.
