At Canadian Stage, we believe that artists give us essential tools to help us navigate our lives. We are thrilled to bring some of the most imaginative local, national and international artists together to arouse us to the present moment, to provoke the pursuit of the extraordinary, and to awaken us to the sublime. With this year’s program, we offer an authentic reflection of our city. What you will find in these pages is a series of works that reflect the driven, compassionate and innovative spirit that defines us as people. Whether it is a joyous story of self-actualization by one of Canada’s biggest literary stars, a brave and defiant piece by a wunderkind of contemporary dance, a laugh-out-loud slapstick dance battle by two physical comedy geniuses, or a debut by Canada’s most promising young musical creator, this season sees artists tackle some of the most pressing issues facing our world with creativity, heart and hope.

OCTOBER 3 - 11, 2019

In an empty locker room, two men move effortlessly from wrestling to dance, acrobatics to physical comedy in this irresistible distortion of the expectations of manhood. Channelling the physical comedic genius of Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello, this epic slapstick masterpiece is part dance battle, part seduction and a whole lot of fun!

Yang Zhen gives a voice to the social condition of a new generation of ethnic minorities in China. Using dancers and performers from the Tibetan region, Inner Mongolia, the Uyghur Autonomous Region Xinjiang and Macao, as well as a Korean-Chinese dancer and an opera singer from Hunan Province, Minorities examines the constant conflict between social prejudice and artists need to express themselves and relate their identities to the world they live in. Dance, theatre, documentary material from Zhen’s extensive travel experiences, and the performers’ memories, form the basis of this interdisciplinary and immersive work of theatre.

“MACIVOR AND BROOKS ARE TWO OF THE MOST ORIGINAL MINDS NOW WORKING IN CANADIAN THEATRE.” – THE GLOBE AND MAIL

O C T O B E R 3 1 - N O V E M B E R 1 7, 2 0 1 9

The dynamic duo of MacIvor and Brooks have created such seminal works as Here Lies Henry, Monster, Cul-de-sac, and Who Killed Spalding Gray. For their seventh collaboration, they chronicle the life of Peter. Finding his estranged mother’s memoir after her death, the eccentric Peter reads aloud the story of his life as told sometimes incorrectly by his mother. Let’s Run Away is a touching story of love and abandonment, and MacIvor is glorious in this captivating solo performance.

“A MUST-SEE! SCORCHING. SUPERB. VITAL.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

JANUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 2 , 2020

For twenty years, a group of friends working at a steel mill decompress at the local bar. When rumors surface that the company is considering layoffs and flyers are hung to recruit non-union workers for less money, the war between community and capitalism begins and tensions start destroying not only jobs, but also relationships. Filled with heart and humour, Sweat is a searing examination of industrial decline, race, politics and friendship by one of the U.S.’s most decorated playwrights.
