Welcome to Sage Theatre's 2014/2015 season! We continue to bring you powerful human stories from some of the best playwrights. Our first show is from Canadian legend Danial MacIvor, A Beautiful View, followed by a co-production with Shadow Theatre, Circle Mirror Transformation, which won the 2010 Obie award for Best New American Play. We'll end the season with our annual Ignite! Festival, which has grown to fit its new home in downtown Calgary.
Sage Theatre's 2014-'15 Line-up:
A Beautiful View - by Daniel MacIvor
November 7 - 15, 2014 @ The Studio in Vertigo Theatre
“Your love is like a tidal wave, spinning over my head...”
A quirky and comic theatrical journey written by Canadian Theatre stalwart Daniel MacIvor that explores the relationship between two women, M & L. Awkward introductions and random meetings turn in to a tentative romance. They make mistakes that they agonize and worry over, they make brave attempts at connection and love, and ultimately they work through each moment of their relationship to understand it better. They're checking the details to know what they stand to lose...
Circle Mirror Transformation - by Annie Baker. A co-production with Edmonton’s Shadow Theatre
February 6 - 14, 2015 @ The Studio in Vertigo Theatre
Four lost new Englanders enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-centre drama class. But within the harmless theatre games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. It's a beautifully crafted diorama, in which we see with hilarious detail and clarity the antic sadness of a motley quintet. Circle Mirror Transformation captures the subtle changes in each of our lives that lead to a complete metamorphosis.
"... an absolute feast." N.Y.T.
The Ignite! Festival
June 25 - 27, 2015 @ The Calgary Tower Centre
Once again, Sage Theatre will bring you the most innovative and compelling new voices from the emerging theatre community. In the past we've had talking Tesla coils and First Nations mythological monsters come to life. What will we have next? Our multidisciplinary focus means we're attracting artists who will create work that mixes the mediums in ways that you've never seen.
Sage Theatre would like to congratulate Mathieu Bourassa on his win at the Betty Mitchell Awards, for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. His winning performance was featured in our production of Michel & Ti-Jean last season. He was praised in the Calgary Herald: "Bourassa is surprisingly agile and sweetly liable as [Michel] Tremblay." Mathieu credited the entire teams of Michel & Ti-Jean for his success, but truthfully, he earned it with his passion, humility and commitment to the role.
We would also like to send out a big shout out to Alice Nelson and her team for Ms. Sugarcoat, who were voted by festival attendees as the Ignite! Fan Favourite. Congrats team, and may Ms. Sugarcoat live a long life!
And finally, thank-you to everyone who came out to the 10th annual Ignite! Festival. Thank-you for making this year's festival a wild success in our new home underneath the Calgary Tower! Thank you to all the talented artists who gave us their creative energy and talent!
