Flooded: A Show And Sail Around The Toronto Islands – Toronto Fringe 2018 Press Release

From Press Release:

TORONTO, ON  – For eleven evenings in July, as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival’s site-specific category, we’ll embark on an hour-long performance/sail around the Toronto Islands.  It’s contemporary performance. It’s an intimate summer boat cruise. And, it’s all for only $12. Where else can you have a summer sail for only $12??? This is sure to be the most unique ticket at the Fringe.  The boat only seats 35 passengers so the tickets will sell out fast!

Featuring some of the best emerging talent in TO’s contemporary theatre scene, Flooded is a new work from celebrated artist Ara Glenn-Johanson (USA) that dives into theatrical territory rarely seen in the city. In this non-narrative and highly physical show, performers grow into humping dinosaurs, fight the patriarchy with luscious locks, climb bodies in search of the right embrace, and stare at the sea.  There is a mystery in every pelvis and we just might awaken yours.
