ITALIAN MIME SUICIDE//THREE RED DAYS


  • The Theatre Centre 1115 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M6J 1J1 Canada

Rome: an Italian mime jumps off a building claiming no one appreciates his art. 
Moscow: in his cramped apartment composer Shostakovich & his wife live through the
grotesque, carnivalesque  paranoia of Stalin’s Russia, awaiting imminent arrest. 

Italian Mime Suicide/ / Three Red Days is an exciting new double bill based on two true anecdotes from the lives of two very different artists, exploring the intersection
of art, politics & ideology; the relationship between melancholy and levity; and ultimately
asking how can art remain vital in times when culture itself is endangered.
