BROKEN SUGAR BOWL
CREATED BY JUANTIA DAWN, TAMARA UNROE AND NAN BALKWILL
PRODUCED BY LONG GRASS STUDIO & WORKSHOP
MOTEL THEATRE AT ARTS COMMONS
MARCH 18 – 19 2017
The Long Grass Studio and Workshop pulled together a dream team of puppet artists and performers to bring you this delightful, multimedia adult puppet play. Three poems are woven together to create a story of “Old Woman” through the symbolic and iconic lens of puppetry.
The inspiration for this forty-minute play comes from award-winning Canadian poet, Mildred Tremblay. Tremblay was an exceptional woman whose writing is both timeless and timely. She lived through years of dramatic social change for women, recording it with wit and spice, addressing women’s issues and experiences that are still urgently relevant today. Her poems have big, bold feminist themes, softened with curves of humour.
Plan to stay after the show for a post-show chat with the artists.
A very special thank you to the Tremblay Family for permission to use Mildred Tremblay’s Poems. Their support of this play has been overwhelming.
