  • Post-Truth'
    • Abstract: I think the truth always matters, truth is tremendously important. I don't live in a subjective universe where everything is up for grabs. I really do believe that stories should be subordinate to the truth.Looking back, perhaps it was a tremor foreshadowing the coming earthquake. In March 2012, American monologist Mike Daisey was publicly exposed for having exaggerated or outright fabricated some of the details behind his one-man theatrical exposé of Apple Inc., The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs. The show was enjoying a successful run in New York when a truncated version was broadcast on the popular radio show This American Life. Perhaps because of the radio show's wider audience or its reputation for rigorous ... Read More

  • Good Fences's Scripted Truths: Cultivating Dialogue in Post-Real Times
    • Abstract: "Everything is true. Some things are scripted, and some things are not," says Artistic Director Ellen Close in response to an audience member's question asking how much of the show Good Fences is real. This type of question, and those similar to it, inquiring about what was true, how much was real, or how the actors really felt was invariably a part of each talkback of the performances I attended on the show's 2015 community tour across Southern Alberta. Produced by the Downstage Theatre company, Good Fences follows the story of Devon, an executive at an oil and gas company whose family has recently purchased land in a ranching community outside of Calgary. Another oil and gas company decides to build a sour gas ... Read More

  • "Nature Exposed to Our Line of Questioning": Tomorrow's Child as Quantum
           Theatre
    • Abstract: "Imagine a warm sea breeze passing over you," Dr. Wolcott tells Polly in Ghost River Theatre's Tomorrow's Child. "We'll have that baby in your arms in a jiff."1 Every day, we imagine objects that are not available to our immediate senses. Each act of imagination requires interpretation: Polly, you, and I imagine different beaches, breezes, and bodily sensations. The play, based on Ray Bradbury's short story, asks us to imagine an incomprehensible accident: Polly's baby is delivered into a fourth spatial dimension. Human sense organs, tethered to three-dimensional space, struggle to capture the baby. Our minds integrate him into our perceptions by interpreting his presence as a three-dimensional object. Strangely ... Read More

  • Apocalypse Masque: Post-Electric Theatricality in Mr. Burns
    • Abstract: What remains of the truth if we gauge a fact by our ability to reproduce, archive, and communicate it technologically' How does narrative reproduce itself after the death of the technology that was its body' What is the ghostly afterlife of its form, the social haunting of its structures' And why do narrative truths haunt' Why do stories outlive their forms, their bodies, passed between people who can barely remember their originals, like Hamlet striving to put his family, his father, together again' Re-member. Me.These questions of the role of narrative haunting, of revivification, of zombie narrative, are at the heart of American playwright Anne Washburn's Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play.

  • Is This Still That' Comedy in the Age of Post-Truth
    • Abstract: Matt Jones sat down with Peter Oldring from CBC's satirical news show This Is That to talk about comedy in the age of post-truth.Can you tell me about the origins of the show'Peter Oldring in This Is That Live. Photo by Ken KellyWe had been working on an Internet show that was kind of a satire of breakfast television. We thought breakfast television is this funny world where usually the information you're getting isn't imperative, so it becomes this white noise in the background, like "helpful tips on how to effectively fold socks." So it was this playground of satirizing that form of media. We like to work on projects that are very close to the truth or that are a satire of something that we kind of recognize. ... Read More

  • Petri Dish Deceptions: The Search for 100% Veracity in Rimini Protokolls
           Statistical Portrait of Montreal
    • Abstract: In the wake of 2016—the year of 'post-truth'1 and 'fake facts'—Rimini Protokoll's 100% Montréal employs elements of documentary, participatory, and intermedial theatre to reveal what the city's actual census statistics have failed to record. The production achieves this primarily through a creative juxtaposition of the collected evidential truths of the city's census data and the collected personal truths produced by a popular diagnostic tool—the referendum. This article tries to better understand what this juxtaposition either reveals or confirms about the precarious nature of statistical accuracy and the underlying forces that currently seem to be complicating the interpretation and pursuit of various truths ...

  • Violence, Speech, and Reality: The Case of Cinq Visages pour Camille
           Brunelle
    • Abstract: Since the 1970s, theatre scholarship has seen a widespread opposition between performance (or performativity) and theatre (or theatricality), and that has been accompanied by a devaluation of speech (saying) in favour of action (doing) in many new plays. This shift implies that the body is somehow 'real,' incapable of showing anything but the truth, while speech is understood to be an art of artifice, allowing, as it does, lying and treachery. Violence, in this world-view, comes to be seen as authentic and real, especially when it is aimed toward the body, be it the artist's or someone else's. Of course, violence or physical damage can be faked in many ways—as theatre, cinema, and professional wrestling have been ... Read More

  • Mobilizing a Slow Theatre Movement through an Atypique Artist Perspective
    • Abstract: There is a crisis right now in our Canadian theatre landscape. Our theatres seem to value only one kind of neurotypical perception. There is a need to represent and include more neurodiverse realities, a need for more ways of being in our creative spaces. Our professional stages and universities have worked systematically within turbo-capitalistic frameworks in which artists and learners who need more time are passed over or are accommodated in ways that make them feel they are the problem. Although it is not my intention to condemn fastness, I want to focus on what or who we miss or leave out when we culturally value one kind of temporality over all others. This approach to temporal evaluation has led to an ... Read More

  • "I Wonder Where They Went": Post-Reality Multiplicities and
           Counter-Resurgent Narratives in Thirza Cuthand's Lessons in Baby Dyke
           Theory
    • Abstract: Resurgence is a political philosophy written about by Indigenous scholars such as Gerald Alfred that argues that Indigenous peoples must rise above colonialism by asserting our sovereignty and nationhood. Resurgence bears resemblance to the similar ideology of refusal: the assertion that Indigenous peoples can embody sovereign self- and peoplehood in order to refuse amalgamation under a larger settler colonial regime, including settler institutions and discourse. Resurgence rejects a colonial version of Indigenous life (and truth) that seeks representation and recognition from the settler colonial state. The limit of resurgence, however, is that it frames resistance to the state within a singular, problematic ... Read More

  • Forced Entertainment' Gamified Surveillance in Theatre Conspiracy's
           Foreign Radical
    • Abstract: On a recent trip to the United Kingdom, I went to see Les Enfants Terribles's production of Inside Pussy Riot, a show irresistibly billed as "an immersive theatrical punk production." I arrived early and set about filling out the show's waiver, which reminded participants that the show was "not for the faint hearted." I checked the box acknowledging that I would be prepared to move around, be placed in confined spaces, and experience scenes of intense content. I then chose one of several political slogans that I said I would be prepared to stand up for in public and listed my Instagram and Twitter handles.In the first of the many rooms we were guided through during the show, we donned bright balaclavas and were ...

  • Foreign Radical
    • Abstract: Capacity is held to thirty people, which allows for an intimate dynamic between participants to build over the course of the show and also for the benefit of The Host, who needs to manage the audience through sometimes a great deal of improvisation and still aim for a running time of about seventy-five minutes. Through both physical and verbal responses, the audience contributes a significant proportion of the material in each show. The game (or participatory) elements allow for degrees of both agency and randomness to set the outcome of the piece.In-process workshops and showings at Black Plastic (Vancouver), University of Toronto Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies, The Cultch (Vancouver), Your ...

  • Editorial: Positioning/Performance
    • Abstract: Part of the Canadian Theatre Review mandate states that the publication "is committed to … bridging the divide between artists and critics." Two ways that CTR "[bridges] the divide" are artist interviews and critical reviews of artistic work—both forms that appear in this Views and Reviews section. While these formats can be useful modes through which to enmesh theory, reflection, and practice, they also demand thoughtful positioning from authors, who often write about others' artistic processes and for audiences not already familiar with the work under discussion. Starting from the context of the classroom, Diana Taylor outlines some of the inherent challenges that come up when discussing and writing about ... Read More

  • Performance Curation and Communities of Colour: Open Reflection, Closed
           Report, and an Interview with Jane Gabriels
    • Abstract: I probably should not have agreed to do this report on Configurations in Motion: Performance Curation and Communities of Colour, held in Montreal this past June. Writing a report feels in conflict with the way I have carried the meeting with me. My job was to co-curate this public event—to provide openings for those working to make space, hold space, fill space for others. What could be learned from the people dedicated to positioning Indigenous, Black, and people of colour at the centre of curating performance' In many ways, this third iteration of Configurations—and the first in Canada—was for the people doing this work on a long-term trajectory. Reporting, I thought, is part of the work. I should do it. It will ... Read More

  • Double Exposure: A Jewish-Palestinian Anthology That Bridges Cultural
           Divides
    • Abstract: Double Exposure: Plays of the Jewish and Palestinian Diasporas is an anthology published by Playwrights Canada Press about the Israeli—Palestinian conflict. With works by diaspora playwrights, it is the first English-language anthology worldwide in any genre of drama, prose, or poetry by writers of Jewish and Palestinian descent. Featuring compelling interviews with each playwright and introductions by acclaimed dramatists Karen Hartman and Betty Shamieh, this volume of seven plays tackles a major thematic taboo for many theatres in the Western world. The anthology—which recently won the Patrick O'Neill Award from the Canadian Association of Theatre Research for the best edited collection—includes three plays by ... Read More

  • In Search of an Ignorant Critic
    • Abstract: At a panel on diversity and theatre criticism at the Modern Times Stage Company's Beyond Representation symposium in April 2017, three Toronto theatre critics apologetically read passages from reviews that they regretted writing. The general consensus was that they had mischaracterized or somehow misunderstood the works that they were discussing—or, as J. Kelly Nestruck observed, his particular review was "ignorant" (qtd. in Alvarez and Knowles 13). These responses were not planned in advance but were brought in by each critic individually to the surprise of those assembled. The fact that three different critics independently thought to reassess their old work in light of ongoing conversations about representation ... Read More

  • Feeling "Good Enough" with Other Jesus
    • Abstract: In the opening moments of Other Jesus—performed in Toronto's St. Matthew's United Church in 2017—the performers scatter throughout the space, holding instruments. With a soft curiosity, they intone together, creating a gentle cacophony that proposes, more than announces, a starting point. The narrative begins in a market in ancient Judea, where Jesus (Ishan Davé) is selling wooden boxes and offering spiritual knowledge with his two friends, Mary (Liz Peterson) and Simon (Evan Webber). At first, their work is tentative, almost timid. Jesus asks, "Practical disciple Mary, thoughtful disciple Simon, how can we share the great emotion, wisdom and things we have thought about suffering and desire and discussed at ... Read More
