Guardian Pick of the Fringe 2017
MOUTHPIECE is a heart-wrenching and humorous journey into the female psyche. The performance is a virtuosic display of physical ingenuity and vocal orchestration. In the wake of her mother’s death, MOUTHPIECE follows one woman, for one day, as she tries to find her voice. Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text, and physicality, two performers express the inner conflict that exists within one modern woman’s head.
Ranging from tender to merciless, with uncompromising precision, MOUTHPIECE magnifies a daughter’s contemplation of her mother, and becomes a rigorous investigation of womanhood itself.
MOUTHPIECE premiered as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model presented by Why Not Theatre with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council and Canadian Heritage.
The performance runs 60 minutes
