Heads up for the Week of Jan. 15-21, 2024

Jan. 15-28, 2024.


Theatre Passe Muraille

By Matei Visniec

Translated by Nick Awde

Directed by Siavash Shabanpour

In Matei Visniec’s dark comedy Migraaaants, we journey with asylum seekers from war and unrest to an over-crowded boat, to an uncertain welcome in an unknown land. 

The mosaic of stories in Migraaaants leads us through the many facets of a global crisis: not only the terrifying journeys of those in flight but the machinations of deadly chaos shaped by political forces. 



Jan 15- 21, 2024

By Heiner Muller

Directed by Harri Thomas

An Other Hearts production
in association with VideoCabaret

Who will you be, and who will you be with, after the end?

Quartet is a play written by Heiner Muller, inspired by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ Liasons Dangereuse. In a space that is equal parts “a drawing room before the French Revolution/ an air raid shelter after WWIII”, two people remain: the Marquise de Merteuil (M) and the Vicomte de Valmont (V).  

Jan. 18-28, 2024

The Shadow Whose Prey The Hunger Becomes.

Berkeley Street Theatre/Canadian Stage

A Back to Back Theatre production from Australia presented by Canadian Stage

When AI takes over from human intelligence, how will people be treated?

Weaving a narrative through human rights, sexual politics, and the rise of artificial intelligence, The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes is a sly theatrical revelation reminding us that none of us are self-sufficient and all of us are responsible for the future.

Written and performed by neuro-divergent actors, this is a funny and beautiful play unlike anything else that will be seen on stage.

All performances will be presented with surtitles. 

Jan. 18-21, 2024
