Here – Toronto Fringe 2013 Press Release


From press release:

FULCRUM THEATRE announces Here, an original multi-media dance theatre piece.

Some of the girls say Emily threw herself in front of a bus. And some of them say she did it for attention. Either way, she’s never going to dance again. Here combines multimedia and dance elements to tell the story of a dancer who shreds a major ligament in her knee, forcing her to cope with a world where her dreams will never be realized. Surprisingly, it’s a comedy.Here is the third original piece by writer/director Aaron Jan produced by Hamilton youth company Fulcrum Theatre. Fulcrum was formed in May 2011 by five undergraduates who felt seperate from the theatre scene in Hamilton. Together, they pooled what little money they had, rented a venue and began rehearsing their very first show. This is Fulcrum’s third year of production and Here is their first production outside of Hamilton.

Here features performers Jacqueline Byers, Erica Charles, Jessie Cox, Farhang Ghajar and Greg Solomon, and is directed and written by Aaron Jan. Last year, Aaron participated in the Paprika Festival at Tarragon Theatrewith Drafts, a play that Fulcrum remounted at the Hamilton Fringe Festival, winning the Best of Fringe. Past productions by this company have had cast members as young as fifteen, and the creative
team as always been twenty-five and under. For more information, visit!

Here will be here soon. Don’t miss your chance to see some of Hamilton’s most ambitious young artists.
