Works in Development
Most Imaginary Worlds
By Meg Braem
This spring Governor General Award nominated playwright Meg Braem will work with the students of Quest School to envision their Most Imaginary Worlds.
Most Imaginary Worlds dramatizes the Social Model of Disability, which says that “disability” is caused by the way society is organized rather than by a person’s impairment of difference, and how to remove these barriers. By imagining with these young collaborators worlds free of these barriers we can create on stage worlds and stories built for their happiness and designed for their success.
Most Imaginary Worlds will be developed in 2017 and is supported by the Canada 150 Community Fund.
Make Love, Not Art
By Elaine Lee and Col Cseke
A renowned visual artist is known for daring nude portraits that display her unique and tiny body for all to see. But, when she asks her gallery curator and self-professed biggest fan out on a date we find out how he really views her body when it’s in front of him in the flesh. If he describes her portraits as erotic does that mean he can find her attractive?
The characters get personal and political as they confront voyeurism, self-exploitation, and the struggle to be seen in this intimate and incisive new play
Make Love, Not Art will premiere in our 2017/18 season.
