Bow Valley Parkway, 1982. Jill sits alone in a car, in a forest, with nothing but an empty bottle of beer that isn’t hers. A retrospective of her 25 years of life, Jill recites her own anecdotes, as well as other upsettingly real tales of loss of autonomy in the final hours before her own abduction and murder.

On the Margin is supported by Common Ground Arts Society‘s Fresh AiR Program.

Trilogy is an exploration of mem- ory and trauma. Told through a kinaesthetic and verbal narrative the story revolves around a young woman trying to come to terms with her past events. As she mentally tries to put the pieces together her physical self attempts to fill in the gaps for her. “There are gaps. Big gaping holes. Like I have a puzzle missing all the blue pieces, which is fine because you can still make out the picture. It’s just not complete.”

Adopted is a one-hour, one- man storytelling show about the realities of being ad- opted. What makes a family? Is blood really thicker than water? And, most importantly, who are my parents anyway? Both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Adopted explores serious themes about childhood and family through both drama and comedy.

You write a message that you’ll never send. You connect to a stranger in the crowd. You finally get that off your chest. Tracks is an immersive guided tour through the things we said, wish we’d said, and wonder if we’ll ever get a chance to say. You choose every step of how you take in this story of one question: is tearing oneself down from the inside the way to build back up?
