Oraltorio: a Theatrical Mixtape


  • The Theatre Centre 1115 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M6J 1J1 Canada (map)
Oraltorio had me wanting to dance from the second I sat in my seat, and left me wanting to come back and tune in to Motion and DJ L’Oqenz over and over again.
— Alexandra Caprara

Oraltorio: a Theatrical Mixtape is a coming of age story that traces the personal and collective journey of Northside-born girls as they grapple with identity, migrate through their histories, and manifest their lineages through ancient, contemporary, and Afro-futuristic soundscapes; finding the multi-layered voices of the B Girl and the DJ, as the traditional storyteller and drummer are reborn in their beats and rhymes. 

Oraltorio: a Theatrical Mixtape is presented as part of The RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Government of Canada.
