WOW! A big thanks to everyone who filled our house last night despite the rain and cold. Our performers were overjoyed to see so many people excited to hear their stories! On that note, we would highly recommend buying tickets online. We will definitely have some tickets available at the door (CASH ONLY) but our reservations are filling up! springmoon.brownpapertickets.com One more housekeeping item: unfortunately due to our stage set-up, we cannot accommodate latecomer seating. We apologize for the inconvenience. Looking forward to seeing you at our next four shows! Photo by Dahlia Katz

The Citadel - The Ross Centre for Dance

HOUSEKEEPING UPDATES: Due to our stage set-up, unfortunately there is no latecomer seating. Running time is approximately 50 minutes. The venue is accessible, however, we recommend coming early so we can ensure you a good seat! Tickets will be sold at-the-door one hour prior to start of show. CASH ONLY. Mixed Company Theatre is proud to present the second installment of our InterGEN Project: SPRING MOON / 春明 Based on the real-life experiences of the Toronto Chinese community, Spring Moon tells the story of a resilient immigrant peoples through the eyes of three Chinese grandmothers who survived hardship and crossed oceans to give their granddaughters a better life. Although separated by differences of language, culture, and distance, the unconditional love that exists between grandmothers and their granddaughters is a connection that cannot be broken. Spring Moon reveals to us that to find out who we are, we will have to understand where we come from. Spring Moon is an exploration of Chinese intergenerational relationships in Toronto and features community performers and emerging artists from across the GTA. The show was created with the input of Chinese youth and seniors from Eastview Community Centre, Scadding Court Community Centre, Broadview Manor, The Phoenix Arts Academy, the Markham youth, and Toronto Community Housing. The show is presented in Cantonese, Mandarin, English, and French with Chinese and English surtitles. Location: The Citadel, 304 Parliament Street Showtimes: Thursday April 20th – 7:30pm Friday April 21st – 7:30pm Saturday April 22nd – 2:00 pm Saturday April 22nd – 7:30pm Sunday April 23rd – 2:00 pm Tickets: $10 springmoon.brownpapertickets.com/ Cast: The Song Family Grandma Song – Betty Chou Jewels – Juvally Chan Andrea – Ashley Chan The Lee Family Grandma Lee – Susan Chou Anne – Angela Sun The Chan Family Grandma Chan – Shasha Huo Jacqueline – Mikaela Cordero Creative Team: Playwright – Diana Tso Director – Karthy Chin Stage Manager/ Production Manager – Becky Wong Assistant Director/ Production Assistant – Calvin Wong Choreographer/ Movement Coach - Julia Hune-Brown Set/Props Designer – Echo Zhou Lighting Designer – Alan Trumble Music Composer/ Pianist – Alice Ho Costumer Designer – Laura Delchiaro Poster Designer - Wenting Li Workshop Project Manager - Kristen Bartlett Surtitle Translations by Calvin Wong Mixed Company Theatre: Artistic Director – Simon Malbogat General Manager – Swetha Ranganathan Communications Director – Angela Sun Special thanks to Kevin Matthew Wong, Lucas Andersen, and Julissa Desbiens!

Our good friend and frequent collaborator Sharada Eswar will be presenting her new play The Draupadi Project, as part of Why Not Theatre's Riser Project at The Theatre Centre April April 17th to the 26th! The play takes a look at The Mahabharat's Draupadi's story from the lens of a 19-year old awaiting trial. We will see you there!

The Draupadi Project

April 17, 2017, 7:00pm

The Theatre Centre

The Draupadi Project is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council and the Government of Canada, and RISER senior partners for 2017 Necessary Angel, Nightwood Theatre, fu-GEN Theatre, Modern Times and The Theatre Centre. The Draupadi Project by Sharada Eswar is a reimagining of the world-famous Indian epic, the Mahabharat – told from the point of view of an amazing woman. Relevant to today’s war-torn world, The Draupadi Project takes us back in time that is half history, half myth and wholly magical. The piece is based in an exploration of the character of Draupadi from a contemporary perspective as her spirit is channeled through the character of a 19-year old girl who is on trial. Confined in a cell, the young woman wrestles with a multitude of voices, the futility of war and the role and status of a woman in today’s society. Directed by: Karin Randoja Featuring: Sharada Eswar Projection &Set Design: Melissa Joakim Lighting Design: Kaileigh Krysztofiak Stage Management: Sasha Tate-Howarth A huge shout out to Nova Bhattacharya Soraya Papaya & Danny Wild for all the initial work, their creativity and support and encouragement.

Blood and bone in earth will birth a woman.” Sexuality & Self, Desire & Transformation The Man Who Married Himself By Juliet Palmer and Anna Chatterton An allegory told by 2 dancers, 3 singers & 6 instrumentalists At Toronto's newest venue, Crow's Theatre Unwilling to marry a woman, a man fashions a lover from his own left side. He's enraptured by her perfect beauty – a mirror of his own – until he discovers that this new woman longs for freedom and wildly desires another. South Asian and Baroque music and performance traditions meet in a stunning new masque based on a traditional Indian folk tale. A powerful & timely allegory of the female and male warring within, told through music, words and movement.

The Big Smooch - A Fundraiser for Clay and Paper Theatre

February 18, 2017, 7:30pm

Clay & Paper Theatre

You are all cordially invited to THE BIG SMOOCH, A Valentine’s Variety Show Fundraiser for Clay and Paper Theatre on Saturday, February 18th. Join us for an eclectic mix of puppetry, live music and a visit down memory lane with some of Clay and Paper’s more political and satirical songs and theatrics. Throw in a naughty puppet kissing booth and a dance band at the end of the night and we’ve got a charming evening of absurdities and dubious refinements. THE BIG SMOOCH LINEUP With your host: Christopher Sawchyn Captain Cowboy and the Money Maker Maryem Hassan Tollar Moyo Rainos Mutamba From Shak Shak, Chris Wilson and Roger Gibbs Rutherford (Andrew Gaboury) Maria Wodzinska Oriane Tala Edwards Andrea Kuzmich, Mario Morello, Shalva Makharashvili The Thirsty Strings with Jesse Corrigan & Tony Allen AND MORE! We can’t wait to see you at our fundraiser, THE BIG SMOOCH. But if you can’t make it, you can always donate online to Clay and Paper Theatre through Canada Helps: www.canadahelps.org/dn/5667 Our charitable tax number is 899324263RP0001. Clay and Paper Theatre was founded in 1994 by David Anderson, longtime theatre activist, producer of new Canadian work, and defender of public space. Now in its 23rd season, Clay & Paper Theatre’s mandate is to create, develop and perform multi-disciplinary, community-driven theatrical works using narrative theatre and large-scale puppetry in public spaces for large and diverse audiences. Clay & Paper Theatre produces plays, pageants and parades with the community, grounded in the idea that performance in public space is an act of cultural transformation. Our practice of building, rehearsing, and performing in full public view is an attempt on our part to “bring back the commons,” reunite art with the daily life of the community, and to make art accessible to all. LOCATION FOR THE BIG SMOOCH: The Clay & Paper Theatre Studio 300 Campbell Ave, Suite 212 (South West corner of 1485 Dupont St and Campbell Ave, west of Lansdowne) Doors open 7:30pm; Variety show: 8pm Dancing: 10pm TICKETS ARE AT THE DOOR ONLY: $20 Entry Donation Bar and merchandise available For any enquiries: 416-708-3332 clayandpaper@gmail.com www.clayandpapertheatre.org
