Zocalo Toronto presents the world premiere of a dynamic new multi-disciplinary stage production that fuses traditional drama with contemporary and Latin-style partnered dancing. Written by Zocalo Toronto’s Artistic Director Vladimir Jon Cubrt, and co-directed by Cubrt and Taylor Graham, The Weeping Salsa is a lyrical tragedy in two acts that tells a story about eros – love that is passionate, physical and urgent; about power – subjugating one’s self for the sake of the partnership; and about finding the strength to stand alone. The Weeping Salsa previews from November 13, opens November 15 and runs to November 29 at The Theatre Centre. More »

The two plays in Co.ED explore the meaning of gender through very different performance styles. The first play, Tabletalk, directed by Ross Manson, sets up a comfortable narrative framework – like building a fort – and the second, A Play about the Other Play, directed by Claire Calnan, tears it down – one wooden plank at a time.
