Highly anticipated show, 11:11 by Samson Bonkeabantu Brown explores the other side of fear through the eyes of a young, Black transman struggling to understand the ancestral messages saturating his dreams.
11:11 will have four digital performances – one of which will be a return of TPM’s Black Out night, where TPM reserves a performance exclusively for Black audiences to enjoy.
All performances in the run will be Relaxed Performances and Closed Captioning will be provided on February 13th. Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members and their families who could benefit from a more relaxed environment, including those on the autism spectrum.
This will be Theatre Passe Muraille’s first Digital Relaxed Run. Closed Captioning will be available at the bottom of the screen for audience members who are Deaf or hard of hearing providing the audio in text form on the February 13th performance.
the prelude – Ryan Knighton
Saturday February 20; 2pm
TPM’s second Prelude event will feature a conversation between TPM board member Darren Cooper and acclaimed author of Cockeyed: A Memoir, Ryan Knighton. This FREE event is inspired by our March production of Speculation by Leslie Ting.
Speculation by Leslie Ting
March 3-6, nightly at 7:30pm
This interdisciplinary project presents the true story of professional violinist and former optometrist Leslie Ting. With monologue and the music of Beethoven and John Cage, Speculation brings audiences through her mother’s gradual loss of vision and eventual passing. This unique treatise on loss, is co-created by acclaimed blind multidisciplinary artist Alex Bulmer and artist Tristan Whiston.
Speculation will have four digital performances, and all shows will be Relaxed Performances. ASL Interpretation will be available on March 5th & 6th by Deaf Interpreter Thurga Kanagasekarampillai.
There will be no subscriptions for the TPM & Chill series. Instead, TPM will be embracing the Pay-What-You-Can-Afford (PWYCA) model and offering single tickets at different price points. The ticket prices this season are: $5, $25, and $50CAD.
The idea being that those who can afford $50 tickets are helping to subsidize those who can afford $5 tickets. Thus, making theatre accessible to more audiences.
