Dancing with Demons: A Fractured Fairytale
Posted on September 8, 2014
COMING TO MILLIBO ART THEATRE, JANUARY 15 – 18, 2015
Don’t miss the show critics call “wickedly fun”, “delightfully demented”, “great, silly fun, but…smart”, with “acrobatic virtuosity”.
The Hero’s Journey has gone awry! A writer held hostage, a demon on the loose–when structure disappears, what’s a character to do? In this one woman, multi-character show, heroes and villains, innocents and vixens battle to tell their own story. With exquisite physical theater, original music, and witty humor, this contemporary fairytale will take you on a haunting, hilarious, dark and delicious adventure.
“…great, silly fun, but it’s also smart…[Its] delightfully demented… Cordon is a ridiculously agile actress…who is as dexterous with her voice as she is with her body. ” –Calgary Herald
“Wickedly fun…worth the price of admission just to watch [her] fluid body movements as she dances, crawls, leaps and sails across the stage.” –Fresno Bee
“Cordon takes us on a journey that is often laugh out loud funny. [She] could perform the phone book or a legal contract and have people chortling.” –Calgary Sun
“…precise physicality…inventive…[with] acrobatic virtuosity” –Edmonton Journal
“Ms. Cordon’s fractured fairytale takes a hard left into a grown-up fantasy gone awry…This is not your mother’s Mother Goose.” –King River Life Magazine
