La Maleta (The Suitcase)

New Program Residency Performance English

La Maleta is the story of Roca, a ten-year-old refugee who escapes her native Colombia clutching her suitcase — inside of which she believes her grandmother is hiding. Struggling to adapt to a new city, a new school, and a new way of life, Roca befriends Paz, a boy with a secret, who, like her, is being bullied by his classmates. Opening the suitcase leads them to an adventure where Roca will find the courage, hope, and strength to adapt to her new home. Incorporating both Spanish and English, this production will engage students’ imagination and provide insight into what a new student who doesn’t speak their language might be feeling and thinking.

Meet Cute

New Program Residency Performance English

Meet Cute is a story about Jane and John who meet at a bus stop — could there be romance? The show explores their conversation in three different ways using the same text. One scene. Two actors. Three possibilities. Because the text is repeated in each scenario, the focus shifts from behaviour to context and finally to intention. Meet Cute speaks to the notion of consent and explores not only what you say, but HOW you say it.
