MainLine Theatre presents
CAPTAIN AURORA: IN CONCERT
Created by Trevor Barrette

Following sold-out performances at the 2015 and 2016 Festival St-Ambroise Fringe de Montréal and the 2016 Wildside Theatre Festival, Captain Aurora is back in a special one-night-only event!

♥♥♥ You are cordially invited to MONTREAL'S MIXED SLOWDANCE! - Autumn Edition! ♥♥♥

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Montreal Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)

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.
