In a small, smokey room, the curtain rises on a stage that might actually be a boxing ring, and a group of actors present a play about the moon, a banana tree and an elephant calf – but just who is performing for whom?

Bertolt Brecht’s classic short play about identity and performance took on a bold, technicolor new life in this dynamic interpretation by Calgary’s experimental theatre company. A surreal comic-drama that stands at the intersection of physical theatre and performance art.

Presented November 29 – December 10, 2016 at the Motel Theatre @ the Arts Commons (Calgary, Alberta)
