SPIN
Created and Performed by evalyn parry
Directed by Ruth Madoc-Jones

Innovative, award-winning Toronto artist evalyn parry takes her audience on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in SPIN, her tour-de-force performance celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change. Inspired in part by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894 – parry spins a web of stories which travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to 21st century consumer culture, peeling back layers of history to ultimately reveal a profoundly contemporary and personal heart to her performance.

parry’s “co-star” is a vintage bicycle: suspended in a mechanic’s stand on stage and connected to a variety of electronic effects pedals, the bike is played – from fenders to spokes to bells – by percussionist Brad Hart, conjuring an astonishing and unique sonic accompaniment to parry’s songs and monologues. Projections by award-winning designer Beth Kates add a captivating visual layer to SPIN, which sold out the run of its premiere in Toronto in 2011.

In Case We Disappear

I was thinking about the fact that someday, I will disappear, and how I wanted my little brother to remember me… remember us. I was inspired to create this show, made up of kooky, embarrassing stories about love, growing up, family, death, and what we're left with when people leave, told through a mix of spoken word, a capella music and comedic sketch. Think of it as a love letter to someone you love, who will, like all of us, someday vanish.

Whimsical and entertaining, multidisciplinary artist Vanessa Smythe’s solo show is “an emotional and spellbinding combination of storytelling, stand-up comedy, poetry and song – all at the same time” (NOW Magazine). In Case We Disappear blends stories of accidental booty calls and forced family hugs in what becomes a theatrical love letter to all the people who vanish. Reminiscent of Flight of the Conchords, Smythe is “able to quickly tack between the humour in everyday minutia, and grand, heartfelt observations about big life questions.” (Jordan Bimm, NOW Magazine)
