Jon Kaplan interviewed Adam Paolozza about our new piece at Rhubarb : Shostakovich, 3 Days In Red.
” Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich spent a nerve-racking weekend in 1961 waiting to be arrested by the Soviet police, his bags packed and waiting at the front door.
That situation inspired Adam Paolozza’s Shostakovich, Or Three Days In Red, a wordless music-and-movement piece underscored by the composer’s 8th String Quartet.
“I appreciate the concentration and size of chamber music,” offers Paolozza, creator of The Double and currently performing in Spent. “Given the small number of instruments, you can see the contour of the music. Somehow, its size suggests dance and movement to me.” …

SPENT opened on Tuesday at the Young Centre to a fantastically warm house.
HERE’S 2 NEW RAVE REVIEWS:
“ Even if you are not interested in the financial crisis, the pure theatricality of Spent, the wonders that just two men can accomplish on a bare stage, is so great that the show should be required viewing for anyone who loves the theatre. For a small investment of time, you’ll get a great return.”
“I could’ve watched Jain and Paolozza all night. In fact, this is probably my only complaint: Spent is too short!”

SPENT returns to the Young Centre this week!!!
After winning a Dora award and playing to sold out houses in Edinburgh, Mumbai and NYC SPENT opens this Tuesday February 12 at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts for a limited run of 6 performances.
“A wonderful combination of incisive satire and sharp physical comedy… Paolozza and Jain are impeccable!”
“After SPENT everything else might just seem a little boring… A rare phenomenon in English speaking Canada… I kid you not, what this company has achieved is important.”
Theatre Smith-Gilmour, Why Not Theatre and TheatreRUN in Association with the Young Centre for the Performing Arts present
SPENT is a fast paced, satirical commentary on the greed that caused the financial crisis. Conjuring the madness of the 2008 economic downturn, the comedic duo Jain and Paolozza spare no one, impersonating suicidal traders, the BBC world news, those who lost everything and especially the CEO bastards that took your money! Inspired by the techniques of silent film where humour, slapstick and pathos come together in the most imaginative way, SPENT will make you think and make you laugh… all the way to the bank.
