A first excerpt of Origin was performed by Hannah Dorozio and Caroline Gauthier as a stand-alone piece in the Shortstanding Festival, in February 2016. It was warmly received by audiences and described by Angela Potvin of Montreal Rampage as “a song theatre piece about love and loss. It was beautiful in a way, and felt painfully intimate.” You can listen to an interview on CBC’s Homerun about the Shortstanding Festival and the workshop performance of Origin here:
The full-length version of Origin will be presented at the Freestanding Room during the Montreal Fringe Festival, June 2nd to 19th. After the Fringe festival, the piece will be workshopped further and will hopefully tour in different cities.
