Inspired by actual events,The Tale of a T-Shirt uses live music and zany puppetry juxtaposed with archival images to take us on a trip around the worldas we follow a t-shirt from seed to cotton to cloth. Created for young audiences (ages 9-15), this docu-comedy will entertain audiences of all ages as we uncover the true origins of our clothing and question the true cost of our clothing and how it all ends up on us.
Directed by Lisa Marie DiLiberto and featuring four hot up-and-coming clown-trained performers, this theatrical adventure is sure to dazzle audiences, while daring us to look beyond the familiar storefront windows as we re-examine the roles we all play as consumers in this game that lasts a lifetime.

About FIXT POINT
Founded in 2006, and headed by Artistic Director Lisa Marie DiLiberto and Managing Director Charles Ketchabaw; FIXT POINT is a professional theatre and media company with a mandate to engage with the community through the combination of site-specific performance and audio art. The artistic goal is to tell tales, across multiple platforms, which serve to preserve local heritage and promote neighbourhood culture.
First created in 2007 by FIXT POINT, The Tale of a T-Shirt toured the Fringe Festival circuit in six cities across Canada, to great critical acclaim. The following year, it was presented to sold-out audiences in Graz and Vienna, Austria, and eventually performed at The Prague International Festival. In 2012 Theatre Direct and Carousel Players supported the work’s further development through the Ontario Arts Council’s Theatre Creators Reserve. Theatre Direct is pleased to support the production of this redevelopment by FIXT POINT for school and public performances in March 2014.
