The God That Comes is still a work-in-progress, but after a recent workshop at the Banff Playwrights’ Colony, and three work-in-progress performances at the Uno Festival in Victoria, BC, the Victoria Times-Colonist called it “pretty close to perfection,” saying that performer Hawksley Workman, “oozes mischievous charisma, fuses the raw and unpredictable feel of live rock music with the thematic daring of dramatic theatre.” This new piece is a collaboration between Christian Barry and Juno Award-winning musician Hawksley Workman. The show fuses the chaotic revelry of a rock concert with the captivating intimacy of theatrical storytelling. It will have a special Halifax run in the Spring of 2013. We are also excited to announce that we are bringing the show to SummerWorks in Toronto for a one-night only special presentation. Follow us on facebook, twitter, and here on our website for more updates to make sure you don’t miss this “raw, playful, epic” experience. (other “3-word audience reviews” in Victoria included: “ejaculated sonic perfection” and “ambisexual audiotronic myth-making”).
Here is a CBC interview about The God that Comes with Hawksley and Christian.
