The History of Sexuality

Talking Dog Productions

Company website

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.

Alissa and Madeleine have their relationship tested under the weight of anxiety and depression. Talia and Darr live the positives and negatives of sex work as their experiences build self-confidence and breed violence. The polyamorous Dom/sub partnership between Craig and Martin exposes the challenges of BDSM power-relationships. And, tying everything together is Professor Marie Dupont, whose omnipotent lectures on truth and power begin to rupture the lives of her students.

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.

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.

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.
