Yesterday Sequoia Erickson brought me the most amazing Robot Comedienne costume,

Women From The Future – bold, contemporary theatre from four Canadian female innovators. This show takes audiences on a cross-country, inter-galactic journey of identity questing, experimentation and sexual exploration.
Featuring Catherine Falkner, Tina Pearson, Wendi Smallwood and Liz Solo, Women From The Future is a new, four-part performance work that merges stand-up comedy with storytelling, ancestral investigation, soundscape, projected visuals, and space! It’s experimental. It’s funny. It’s contemporary theatre that takes risks – an experience for the stage that you don’t want to miss!
Roles 4 Women commissioned Canadian creatrixes Catherine Falkner (Vancouver), Tina Pearson (Victoria), Wendi Smallwood (St. John’s) and Liz Solo (Toronto) to make brand new theatre. The result is an edgy 4-part multi-media stage-work featuring daring, women-made performance:
- In The Crack of Space – by Catherine Falkner – a cross-country adventure of identity questing and sexual exploration…
- Blood in My Wires, Dust in my Breath – by Tina Pearson – an investigation into communication with the biosphere…
- Resurrecting Mary – by Wendi Smallwood – a retrospective on the life and times of a stand up comedienne …
- She, Robot – by Liz Solo – a hybrid-reality robot space adventure.
The artists of Women From The Future come from diverse backgrounds and presentation styles: Tina Pearson works in sonic phenomenon, composition and networked performance. Catherine Falkner merges physical comedy, story-telling and lo-fi tech. Liz Solo creates theatre/digital media sci-fi mash-ups. Wendi Smallwood builds character driven, no holds barred, powerhouse stage performances. Roles 4 Women brings 4 unique artists together from across the country to Toronto – a city where they all have history.
