Sunny, the official SummerWorks mascot, interviewed Artaud co-creator and performer Adam Paolozza about the upcoming show…there was, however, a slight communication problem…
Our co-production with DLT Teatro from Florence ofMidway Along The Journey Of Our Life is selling-out at SummerWorks!
Here’s what the reviews are saying:
-“lost in a dream like world…fragmented…exciting”
-“Midway Along the Journey of Our Life requires a lot of trust and confidence from both its artists and participants. If you feel comfortable joining in the action, you’re in for a treat: Walking along Queen West, behind a white rabbit on stilts, while wearing a pilot’s uniform and carrying a locked briefcase, was pretty magical.”
-“…there’s nothing I’ve ever seen that I could compare that to. What I ignorantly signed myself up for was something 100 times more exciting than I expected…Another highlight of the Summerworks theatre festival….”
There are only 5 DAYS LEFT to see it…Wednesay-Saturday this week.
TheatreRUN is proud to co-produce Midway Along The Journey Of Our Life, a new piece by Italian theatre artist Daniele Bartolini.
Daniele Bartolini is a founding member of D.L.T. Teatro in Florence, Italy, a company known for work that is political, sensually immersive and challenging to traditional audience/performer relationships. Daniele was last seen in Toronto in TheatreRUN’s Shostakovich, Or Three Days In Red,
Joining Daniele is an international production team made of Danya Buonastella (Toronto), and two other founding members of D.L.T. Teatro: Chiara Fontanella (Florence) and Matteo Ciardi (Florence).
About the Show:
Designed for one spectator at a time, the piece proposes to transform the audience into performer: you are asked to put on a costume and to embark on a journey as the protagonist of a mysterious story. You are led through the alleyways of Toronto which transform into an urban labyrinth, populated by ambiguous characters. You are guided by a voice, which helps (and playfully confuses) you, as you search for the solution to this enigmatic game.
As this piece is for one audience member at a time we are urging people to book early. Below are showtimes and a link to tickets.
