  • Editorial
    • Abstract: This special issue on theatre and sports tackles a variety of actualities from the world of athletic competition in an effort to uncover new levels of meaning emerging from a blending of theatrical appearances and facts within professional sports. Sporting events are governed by leagues and rules; however, the individual experience of attending and involving oneself in sports drastically alters the affective, personal, and communal knowledge gained and passed on from these highly theatrical experiences. Competitive sports, while supposedly based only on physical conditioning and athletic skill, always involve players and fans alike in a wide variety of different levels of theatrical meaning and engagement. ...

  • Being John McEnroe
    • Abstract: First, a confession: I’ve had a lifelong obsession with the tennis star John McEnroe. I was a young girl when the petulant and unpredictable teenage upstart was taking Centre Court by storm. When McEnroe was in play, I could be found on the floor a couple of feet from our faux-wood monstrosity of a television set, with the volume elevated to levels that unnerved my parents, in the hopes of catching one of his oddly lyrical outbursts: “You are the pits of the world!” I would study McEnroe’s every move: the odd contortions of his body as he moved into his serve, the impulsive flicks of his racket when he would rush the net to volley, the tortured self-scrutinizing as he walked back to the service line after ...

  • Off-Script: A Formulaic “Freedom” in Rhythmic
           Gymnastics’ Code of Points
    • Abstract: Style makes a difficult action into a graceful gesture.… Style is to be courageous without disorder, to give necessity the appearance of freedom. Rhythmic gymnastics is an aesthetic sport predicated on the interrelationship of technical virtuosity and artistic prowess. Fusing together sport and art, the sport borrows techniques from artistic gymnastics, dance, circus, and classical ballet and as such has a complex judging system that divides the evaluative process into “difficulty” and “execution,” which includes “artistic faults.” One of two all-female Olympic disciplines, gymnasts perform four 90-second routines that incorporate the rope, hoop, ball, clubs, and ribbon, respectively, with musical ...

  • Screen and Roll: Transmissions of Embodied Knowledge through Canadian
           Women’s Basketball History
    • Abstract: I stand at the front of a gymnasium. Basketballs bounce: on the hardwood floor, against the Plexiglas backboard, off the metal rim. I blow my coach’s whistle. Immediately, the players—an elite team of 14-year-old girls—gather around me. They look at me with eager eyes: I’ve got bodily knowledge, and they want it. “We’re going to learn how to set screens,” I announce. “Screen: A play in which an offensive player runs over and stands in a stationary position next to a teammate’s defender to free up the teammate to dribble or to receive a pass. Also called a pick” (International Basketball Federation). In Performance Theory, Richard Schechner argues that human performance practices—such ... Read More

  • A Pedagogical Trip to the Field of Dreams
    • Abstract: “Why, in a course on theatre, did we do that?” This was the first question I asked, for several years running, in the second class of the University of Guelph’s Introduction to Theatre course, the first class having been taken up with the usual course outlines, protocols, and procedures. In between, we went to a ball game. “Why, in a course on theatre, did we do that? The answers to the question varied but usually, eventually, got to the heart of the issue. The required intro course over the years involved field trips, sometimes as many as nine or ten over the course of a semester, to shows in Guelph, Toronto, Stratford, Kitchener, and Niagara-on-the-Lake. You can’t study theatre without ... Read More

  • The Rules of (Dis)Engagement: Exploiting the Formal Characteristics and
           Reception Etiquette of Team Sports in Binge Culture’s Break Up [We Need
           to Talk]
    • Abstract: Early Sunday morning, Binge Culture is approaching the climax of a very public breakup at the Matchbox Gallery on Cuba Street, Wellington’s bohemian pedestrian mall. For six hours, five performers wearing banana suits have been performing the improvised dissolution of a fictional relationship. The audience has grown considerably since the opening curtain; the doors remain open throughout the show, and so, as the other Fringe Festival venues close up for the night, theatregoers with a little gas left in the tank are drawn to the action, some by the Twitter feed (#bingebreakup). Overflow spectators end up sitting on the floor in front of the seats and standing two rows deep behind them. Others watch (and ... Read More

  • Fake It ’Til You Make It: A Conversation with the Performers of
           Smash Wrestling
    • Abstract: A combination of sport, theatre, and rock show, professional wrestling remains a performance art often overlooked in favour of its more socially accepted cousins. Its very passionate audience, however, finds within it a perfect combination of storytelling, athleticism, and glamour unrivalled by any other art form. Fuelled by online communities and social media, the most dedicated of wrestling fans experience it beyond the limits of television, congregating regularly at local events put on by independent grassroots promotions such as Toronto’s Smash Wrestling (smash-wrestling.com/). Backstage at the Franklin Horner Community Centre in Etobicoke, Ontario, three performers sit down to discuss their ... Read More

  • Scott Moir’s “Funny Face”: Make Belief, Camp, and
           Masculine Performance
    • Abstract: Figure skating is one of the most controversial and one of the most popular spectator sports in the Winter Olympics. In recent years, despite the judging scandals and criticisms that plague the sport, its TV ratings and corporate sponsorship in Canada have been second only to those of hockey (McGarry). Some sports columnists even insist that figure skating is not a sport because it emphasizes theatrics and costumes over athletic prowess and is not judged on the basis of speed or technical skill alone (Foss; Wetzel; Kestnbaum 16). The combination of athleticism and artistry prompts Richard Schechner to see figure skating as both sport and art, with skaters showing personal creativity while following ... Read More

  • In the Zone: Performing Fandom and Branding in Toronto’s Jurassic
           Park
    • Abstract: Throughout the 2016 NBA playoffs, TSN television broadcasts of Toronto Raptors games would cut during stoppages in play to the immense crowd gathered outside the Air Canada Centre (ACC)—the Raptors’ home arena—watching and cheering in Maple Leaf Square. Fans gathered to watch basketball games in “Jurassic Park,” or, as it was officially rebranded by Raptors’ owner Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment (MLSE) for their corporate sponsor, the Ford Motor Company, the Ford Fan Zone at Maple Leaf Square. It did not matter whether the game was in Toronto, Indianapolis, Miami, or Cleveland, thousands of fans would show up rain or shine to be a part of the action and festivities of the viewing party. During end-of-season ... Read More

  • Deking Out Reality: The Challenges of Staging Hockey
    • Abstract: Rinks are everywhere and they are an iconic Canadian image; they are around us all the time, it’s our national sport and Canadians love hockey. Hockey—the smell of the Zamboni, the scrape of shovels clearing ice, the prickle of cold air in the nostrils, the echo of the puck against the boards, the classic organ-played anthems, the ache of muscles, and the adrenaline that comes with extraordinary speed. Michael Buma argues that Canadians have been bombarded by popular cultural representations of hockey as “Canada’s Game,” unifying internal differences and differentiating Canadians from external others (like Americans), mobilizing the rhetoric of identity discourse and cultural nationalism (4). During my ... Read More

  • Editorial
    • Abstract: On 28 October 2015, “A Conversation on the State of Canadian Theatre: Redux” was held at the Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto. Organized by Martin Julien and the centre’s staff, the event was inspired by Julien’s chance finding of an archival video of a 1973 panel discussion—called “A Conversation on the State of Canadian Theatre”—in which playwright Carol Bolt, actor David Bolt, and artistic directors and theatremakers Bill Glassco and Paul Thompson discussed issues in Canadian theatre, moderated by academic and historian Richard Plant. The “Redux” panel featured a repeat appearance by Thompson, with Rosamund Small, Jennifer Brewin, and Beatriz Pizano playing ... Read More

  • Community, Viability: Theatre Past and Present
    • Abstract: In 2013, I was looking through the old card catalogue at the Media Commons in the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library to see if I could scare up something unusual and exceptional for a course I was about to teach at Humber College on Canadian theatre history. Soon, I had a librarian pulling an old VHS videotape out of a box in the backroom and literally blowing the dust off of it: A Conversation on the State of Canadian Theatre, a roughly hour-long panel discussion produced by the university’s Instructional Media Centre in Scarborough in 1973. Featuring artistic directors Bill Glassco (Tarragon Theatre) and Paul Thompson (Theatre Passe Muraille), along with playwright Carol Bolt and her husband, actor ... Read More

  • Writing for Listening
    • Abstract: An opening poem: A moment stuck with me in the days after the panel. And, of course, it happened just as the video documenting the event ran out. A flourishing of semi-coherent outrage from different generations of white theatre dudes. I was representing scattershot GenX frustration; Paul Thompson, the baby boomers, arguing that “energy would shine through”; and Thomas McKechnie, representing the energetic and, yet again, cut-off millennials. Such was the outrage that I forget exactly the next spark or the content—but my emotional memory is that Paul said something about the need for youngsters to stop ragging on the status quo and just make our own work. Our outrage, of course, is that we ... Read More

  • Ten Things about Being an Artist in the Near Future
    • Abstract: Lately, my mind is very much turned toward the future. I’m writing a large-scale show exploring the future of love and technology for Outside the March. For the young performers of Rosedale Heights, I’m writing about a dystopia in which all teenagers take a magical pill that wipes away their heightened emotions. (l-r): Katherine Cullen, Oyin Oladejo, Mayko Nguyen, Cyrus Lane in TomorrowLove™, a fifteen-play cycle by Rosamund Small. Production by Outside the March. Photo courtesy of Neil Silcox Nothing fills me with more anxiety than thinking about the fact that change is so inevitable, and this anxiety has spilled its way into my work and the way I think about art in general. ...

  • Staging Homonormativity: A Review of Small Axe
    • Abstract: Small Axe opened at the Theatre Centre in Toronto in January 2015. As a work of verbatim theatre, the play probes homophobia as experienced in the Jamaican-Canadian community. The play’s narrative initially looks to the similarities and differences between these experiences and those felt by the play’s creator, Andrew Kushnir, a Ukrainian-Canadian gay man. The play is notable in several regards. Foremost, its exploration of homophobia across the two cultures reveals how other kinds of social marginalisation (viz. racism and the legacy of slavery) confound and complicate more commonplace understandings (as experienced by Kushnir) of queer prejudice. Furthermore, as the play progresses, Alan Dilworth’s ... Read More
