Bye, Bye Bombay
Written & Performed by Cara Yeates
Bye Bye Bombay is the story of Gauri a young woman who, after her mother's tragic death, travels to India to 'find herself'. Instead Gauri loses herself in the exciting world of Bollywood.

Radio Star
Written & Performed by Tanya O'Debra
Watch (but mainly listen) as Tanya O'Debra lends her voice to ten different characters while simultaneously staging silly sound effects in this filthy, filthy, dirty 1940's radio detective spoof. Just like the golden age of radio, only dirtier. (60 minutes)

Presented by Theatre Reverb
In the Yoshiwara club of the red light district, four members of opposing insurgent factions battle for control of a revolution against a crumbling metropolis. This futuristic noir inspired by the classics Blade Runner and Metropolis uses live feed from multiple security cameras to create a beautiful nightmarish environment of danger and intrigue and surrounds spectators with live music, cabaret, projection and classical Indian dance-theatre in a unique total theatrical experience the press calls "a multi-sensory, funny, serious, erotic and fascinating piece of theater" and "a paranoid post-apocalypse [that] bridges ancient and modern mythology and calls on audiences to question the composition of human nature." (90 minutes)
Sat 1/12 @ 8pm & Tue 1/15 @ 9pm

The Momentum
Presented by CollaborationTown
CollaborationTown is going to change your life when we fulfill our vibrational destinies together with The Momentum, a self-help-sploitation that asks: Unhappy? Listless? Broke? Alone? Depressed? Shoeless? Let its Laws of Attraction massage your vibrations and pull you into the Gaping Hole of Momentum. There, you'll eventually learn it's not what you don't have that matters, but what you think you want to have but don't yet and aren't sure how to find and who even knows if what you want is what you need or if it's obtainable but if it is there's only one way to get it: THE MOMENTUM™®©. (60 minutes)
Sun 1/13 @ 7pm & Tue 1/15 @ 7:30pm

Little Lady
Created & Performed by Sandrine Lanfond
The transformation of Cirque du Soleil and Celine Dion dancer to performer generated theater artist is mirrored in this dark, comic and at times grotesque fable about our modern day obsession with self- image. The exquisite movement skills of Lafond juxtaposed with the world of distortion and manipulation accentuates Little Lady's tormented and blissful metamorphosis. (50 minutes)
Mon 1/14 @ 5:30pm
