Here's a link of a map to the venue:: goo.gl/maps/4Wevxz2Ubh32 “Split my body in two. Bury my left half in flowers. 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. Featuring: Singers Scott Belluz, Susha Rangarajan and Alex Samaras Dancers Jelani Ade-Lam and Sze-Yang Ade-Lam A chamber orchestra led by Larry Beckwith Choreographed by Hari Krishnan Directed by Marie-Nathalie Lacoursière Lighting Design by Gabriel Cropley Costume & Set Design by Rex 10 & 11 March 2017, 8:00 p.m pre-show event at 7:15 p.m. each evening Matinee at 2:00 p.m., 11 March 2017 pre-show event at 1:15 p.m. Crow’s Theatre, 345 Carlaw Avenue at Dundas Street East

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!

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

...Today with Jumblies in Shubenacadie we worked together exceptionally well as allies. For 10 years now, i have wanted to help get a plaque or monument to commemorate all those who attended the Indian Residential School in Shubie. SO, here we were in Shubie with Four Lands, digging up history and exploring relationships and making art. At the least, I said to Ruth Howard (Jumblies Director), we need to make some art about the Ind Res School that was here. Ruth is amazing at going with the flow and she intuitively knows what is important, and she immediately agreed. Then in came Dorene Bernard, and she was right on board too. In fact, she structured the day's work on this, as she explained that the TRC had granted $500,000 in funds for this, and she told us about the design that was developed by local artist Teresa Marshall. So, it seems a out-of-province company was retained to create this monument, and money was paid to the company, and that was several years ago, and there is still no movement on the monument. This is how the story seems to fit together....!!!! Well, we all collaborated. We were family on this. Many of us helped to make our own miniature version of the monument, following the artist's design with the materials on hand, and then all of us went together to the site of the old school where there is now simply a plastics factory. We put down our miniature monument, and had a brief and moving ceremony to respect the ancestors and the survivors. ...While we were there, on a nearby property we saw the one make-shift plaque that someone created on a tree (see below). ... After most people left, while we were cleaning up, I wrote a message on brown paper in front of our miniature monument. We will be getting some movement on this soon IF YOU HELP by sharing these photos. Wela'liek. No'kmaq,
