<em>Every Brilliant Thing</em>

This new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love was commissioned by Paines Plough, one of the UK’s leading theater companies devoted to new writing. The show, which had a 16-week run Off-Broadway in 2014, “may be the funniest show about depression you’ve ever seen…about finding reasons to live rather than reasons to die. And those reasons can be as minute as wearing a cape and as big as falling in love.” (New York Post) "You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid.’ She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for.
1. Ice Cream
2. Kung Fu Movies
3. Burning Things
4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose
5. Construction cranes
6. Me
You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own."

<em>L'État de siege (State of Siege)</em> Théâtre de la Ville

After exciting stage productions of Ionesco’s Rhinocéros in 2012 and Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author in 2014, Théâtre de la Ville returns with L’État de siege (State of Siege), a dizzying allegory created by Albert Camus. In this nightmarish future, a city is reduced to the silence and submission of authority under the leadership of a character called “Le Peste” (The Plague). The Plague brings order, administration, lists, records, statistics, and persecution — until a young man, Diego, organizes a revolt. Written in 1948, State of Siege takes place in Cádiz, Spain and reflects the creation of a corrupt, totalitarian regime and the necessity of resistance. Performed in French with English supertitles.

<em>Cold Blood</em>

After the resounding success of Kiss & Cry (2014-15 season), the magnificent creative team of Charleroi Danses in Belgium brings Cold Blood, a poetic journey that is filmed before your very eyes. The performance explores the miniscule, surveying the worlds where life is viewed through a kaleidoscope, with fingers cavorting in a delightful miniature setting. In a hypnotic story laced with offbeat humor, Cold Blood explores the uncertain, yet inevitable, last moments we experience before we die. Cold Blood is neither a sequel nor an epilogue to Kiss & Cry but utilizes the same storytelling techniques, combining film, dancing fingers, music, and theater in brilliant and surprising ways. “If the team came back to Quebec ten times, we would rush to see them ten times. And would encourage you to do the same. Because their work is absolutely masterful.” (Le Devoir, Montreal)
