Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 5, 8 pm Pre-show chat in the Cen­ten­nial The­atre lobby at 7:15 pm

for one dancer and three ac­tor-mu­si­cians, ex­am­ines the pos­si­bil­i­ties and modes of artis­tic ex­pres­sion and ques­tions the re­la­tion­ship be­tween empti­ness and over­flow­ing in a world that is brim­ming with sym­bols.

Ho­moBLABLA­tus: n. sin­gu­lar – Sub-species of Homo Sapi­ens (also called ho­moblab­la­tor) man­i­fest­ing hyper­ac­tiv­ity of the buc­co­labial or­gan and pre­sent­ing symp­toms of ad­dic­tion to all forms of ver­bal ex­pres­sion, along­side an ex­treme fear of si­lence. His ap­proach to the world is vol­un­tar­ily child­like and play­ful; he leads a tem­per­ate and in­ter­con­nected ex­is­tence and has devel­oped an ad­vanced model for sur­vival based on an in­vented lan­guage called blab­la­terie.

The dis­cov­ery of Ho­moBLABLA­tus, ul­ti­mate in­car­na­tion of the hu­man race, has forced us to ques­tion the weight of our words and our be­hav­iour. He also in­vites us to seek out pris­tine spa­ces or white pages where the spo­ken word can res­onate and the writ­ten word can per­me­ate.

Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion of El doce dur­ing the 2010-2011 sea­son, Sher­brooke au­di­ences have come to rec­og­nize the grandeur of fla­menco dancer Myriam Al­lard and fla­menco singer Hedi Graja. We are pleased to wel­come them back to the Cen­ten­nial The­atre stage fol­low­ing a three-week run at Mon­treal’s Place des Arts. Spec­ta­tors and crit­ics re­main “…stunned be­fore Myriam Al­lard, mag­nif­i­cent fla­menco per­former, en­er­getic, mag­netic - paying homage to the pu­rity of the form and freely re­vis­it­ing tra­di­tion…” La Presse, 2010
