Presented by A71 Entertainment
Thursday October 2nd, 2014
8:00 PM

80 Minutes

Starring: Michael D. Cohen, Emma Fleury, Aaron Abrams

Special Presentation Q&A hosted by writer/director Emmanuel Shirinian!

IT WAS YOU CHARLIE is a dark comedy-drama that tells the story of a lonely graveyard shift doorman named ABNER, a once-accomplished sculptor and former college art teacher, but now sadly, a mere shadow of his former self. He is heartbroken because of an unresolved conflict with his brother over a woman he once loved, and is at the same time consumed with guilt and suicidal thoughts as he remains profoundly haunted a year after a terrible car accident that took the life of the young woman in the other vehicle. After meeting ZOE, a young, free-spirited taxi driver, something magical happens to Abner as he begins a quest to seek redemption, and reconcile his conflicted past.

In elsewhere, everyone is simultaneously together and alone; the reeling bodies are guided by a collection of experiences, leaving behind a sensory imprint of all that is changing, vital and fleeting. Strauss and her collaborators, filmmakers Laura Taler and Jeremy Mimnagh, have created a series of films to accompany the work, including the short film elsewhere, to be premiered at Public Energy’s season launch.WORKSHOP WITH HEIDI STRAUSS AND JEREMY MIMNAGH: FROM LENS TO SCREEN A one day filmmaking intensive for artists, performers and filmmakers interested in collaborative filmmaking.

eidolon by Bill Jameseidolon2014

Presented by Public Energy
Friday, October 24, 2014 8:00pm

PRE-SHOW CHAT with Ruth Madoc-Jones, director, 7pm in the lobby.
POST-SHOW RECEPTION meet the artists in the lobby following the show.

eidolon noun 1. an idealized person or thing. 2. a specter or phantom.

Bill James’ newest work is inspired by important relationships he has had throughout his life with those who have passed away. While it is his first full-lengthsolo work, it can also be seen as a series of duets with conjured spirits and a duet with composer David Grenon, who creates both live music and architecturalsoundscapes. Also collaborating on the project is director Ruth Madoc-Jones,whose insightful work across disciplines has made her one of the most in-demanddirectors in the country. After establishing an international reputation in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto asa dance artist and producer of multidisciplinary events, Bill moved to a farm justoutside Peterborough about ten years ago. Since then he has continued to pursuehis artistic vision, lately by putting himself in his own work. In 2013 Toronto’sSoulpepper Theatre awarded Bill the Soulpepper Dance Award in the Senior Dance Artist category. That award has supported the creation of eidolon.

Ntu & Skwatta by Vincent S.K. Mantsoe

Presented by Public Energy
Tuesday, February 3, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artist following the show.

Vincent Sekwati Koko Mantsoe was born and raised in Soweto, South Africa. Born in the middle of Apartheid, he was more interested in cultural growth than in politics. As a child he and his siblings woke everyday to the sound of drums, when his grandmother, mother and aunt were greeting the Ancestors. A descendant of a long line of Sangomas (traditional healers), Mantsoe participated in traditional ritualsinvolving the use of song, dance and drumming. Mantsoe does not believe that he is a Sangoma, although he possesses their spiritual energy. Currently his creative activities revolve around the existential challenge of bridging between the past, the present and the future. Creating a universe through dance, he invites the audience in to join him on his sometimes humorous, more often painful, and always extremely physical journey.

Marathon by Aharona Israel

Presented by Public Energy
Thursday, February 12, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artists following the show

Marathon has been a hit at festivals around the world since its debut in 2012 and comes to Peterborough between the new Progress Festival in Toronto and the Undercurrents Festival in Ottawa. Marathon uses endless running as a metaphor for the daily experience of young Israelis, in a highly physical theatre work that pushes its three performers to the limit. Which of them will survive? As time goes by, their journey becomes more difficult and gradually the wounds of Israeli society open up and its default options become apparent. Through the performers’ own stories the work reflects on subconscious elements in Israeli culture and mentality, such as a constant sense of emergency and a desperate holding onto ideas and ideals. Aharona Israel is a an interdisciplinary artist whose varied training – she is trained in dance and holds a B.A. in architecture – informs a body of work that combines intimate research into body and movement with a strong sensibility to social and political themes. Her works have been seen in festivals and theatres in Israel and across Europe since 2002.
