Want to add a bit of heat and excitement to your week ?
Whether you prefer Wild and Wacky or Bold and Brazen, the 23rd Annual Wildside Festival, running January 7th to the 18th of January, 2020 at Montreal’s Centaur Theatre, is possibly “the hottest two weeks in winter” in the city with its eclectic lineup of cutting edge indie theatre.
This year’s line-up of stimulating shows for mature audiences include:
Don’t Read the Comments by Sermo Scomber Theatre :
Following its success at the Montreal Fringe, this hilarious clown / Buffon show is set at a TV talk show and delves into the “grey areas” of sexual encounters and consent.
Her Songs, My Story by Michelle Sweeney & Company
This heartfelt production features Montreal’s soul icon Michelle Sweeney as she embarks on a deeply personal journey of found love , personal loss and redemption lived through the music of Aretha Franklin.
Hollow Mountain by Rock Bottom Movement
A darkly absurd dance theatre work that follows five friends as they navigate the inner rocky territory of their psyches through demonic possession, self-mutilation and radical dance.
Multiple Organism by Mind of a Snail Puppet Co.
A surrealist “Alice in Wonderland -like” comedy for adults (18+) that closely examines the concept of having a body and how our body is perceived by others. Gender-bending. Nudity. Projections. Puppetry. Original music and Sentient toothbrushes ! *** Warning: Nudity, Sexual Content, Cartoonish Death/Suicide
Wah Wah Wah by wah wah wah collective
Watch a young queer woman grapple with the messiness of being violated through extreme body movements, crawling, monologues, cries from the heart and encounters with pigs of the human and animal variety…
