Yet again, Undercurrents 2016 serves up a wonderful selection of performances. From the comedic, to the interactive, to the incredibly thought provoking, this year’s festival has provided a little something for everyone, and with enough variety to actually sit through and have an entire evening of it.
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 the second week, Circle Circle’s A Man Walks Into A Bar and La Fille Du Laitier’s Macbeth Muet deserve a special mention.
