Measure Back
What does it mean to say we are at war? What is the mass media's role and function in response to war, and what is ours? Can we, as "non-combatants", change the course of war? Created by Christopher McElroen and T. Ryder Smith, the visceral and thought-provoking theatrical work Measure Back seeks a path between the citizen-as-spectator and the citizen-as-participant. Set in an immersive theatrical environment to examine scenes of conflict ranging from Homer's The Iliad to today’s headlines, Measure Back uses audience participation and black humor to probe how war is constructed and performed – from conception through consensus to action.

A young girl. An English doctor. A harsh, unforgiving city. Come one, come all and hear the tale of The Venus Hottentot, the beautiful African Dancing Princess. Star of the freak shows and medical wonder. Step right up, folks. Don't be shy. An opportunity like this comes around once in a life time. Cynthia Croot directs Suzan-Lori Parks' brilliant examination of race, history, and the colonization of imagination.

The God That Comes
Sex, wine and rock and roll. Staged by Nova Scotia's 2b theatre company, The God That Comes is Hawksley Workman's intoxicating one-man cabaret, pop and glam rock hybrid that recreates the story of Bacchus, the Greco-Roman god of wine, using Euripides' The Bacchae as a primary source. In a world ruled by a greedy and oppressive king, the lesser classes let loose in a hedonistic spiritual revolution fuelled by wine, ritual madness and ecstasy. The party, however, comes to a halt when the king orchestrates a violent confrontation against his protesters. Contains strong language.
