How thrilling to see a group of 12 teenagers turning their frustrations into art. Whether questioning existence alone in a spotlight, or singing and dancing together in syncopated rhythm, their commitment to performance is riveting.

Using music, dance, video projection and spoken-word poetry, these teens weave together a tapestry of satire, inquiry and longing. They challenge any preconceptions the audience might have about teens. They tap into what must be fairly universal dissatisfaction about modern, urban life, such as being turned into a zombie by consumerism.

“What is the point of being here at all?” several of the performers ask. Each time the answer is different but always poignant and hopeful. Please note: I have no idea why there is a mature audience label in the program. Kids as young as 10 would enjoy this show.

— Ben Wiebe

From the Fringe program:

The Indian Residential School history is not an "Indian problem" but rather, it is a Canadian wound, one that we must all heal from. Through this spoken-word-based piece, we witness our shared point in history and move to create a new future, one that speaks to the creation of a country that embraces us in all our perfect diversities.
