Undercurrents 2016 has lined up an impressive collection of shows for the first half of the festival. From the comedic, to the interactive, to the incredibly thought provoking, this round has a little something for everyone, and enough variety to sit through and watch everything in one evening.
According to festival director Patrick Gauthier, one thing you can expect is a focus on “women’s voices and stories,” with more than 7 in 10 of this year’s writers and directors being women. And truly, they have created some of the most impressive performances in this festival so far. In this, Quote Unquote Collective’s Mouthpiece and Calalou’s Monstrous deserve a special mention.
