Boca del Lupo's Micro Performance Series presents
Created and Performed by Karen Hines
February 8 - 18, 2017 at 8:00pm, no shows on February 12 and 13.
The Fishbowl Venue on Granville Island
CRAWLSPACE a highly visceral and wildly theatrical experience is a darkly comedic, cautionary tale about the brutal battleground of real estate, decorative twig orbs and the state of the human soul. It filters real estate through the lens of Antonin Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty to come up with this hybrid: Theatre of Realty.
This piece is inspired by creator and performer Karen Hines’ true story of buying a fully detached ‘condo alternative’ in a hip downtown Toronto neighbourhood in the heated market of 2006 . . . and then having it all go horribly, nightmarishly wrong. Join the Host (Hines) in a dreamy re-incarnation of the hellish little house as she entertains her guests Scheherazade-style – except instead of language steeped in poetry, history and philosophy, this play will offer floor plans, cut-lines from MLS real estate one-sheets, and erotic incantations inspired by Pottery Barn catalogues.
Karen Hines is a Dora Award-winning writer, director, actor, and cult comedienne best known for her dark clown pieces presented by Keep Frozen: Pochsy Productions. She is also known for her direction of the famous Canadian clown duo Mump and Smoot.
