DV8 Physical Theatre
To Be Straight With You
"Unfailingly Brilliant" - LA Times

26 - 27 November

OTTAWA, CANADA

Harbourfront Centre
TORONTO, CANADA


Nominated for a 2009 Laurence Olivier Award as ‘Best New Dance Production’(UK)

Duration: 90 minutes

Artistic Director Lloyd Newson leads a multi-ethnic cast in a poetic but unflinching exploration of tolerance, intolerance, religion, and sexuality. Based on hundreds of hours of audio interviews, To Be Straight with You is hard-hitting and passionate, incorporating dance, text, documentary, animation, and film. Performances are intense, but anger and emotion are leavened with humanity, compassion, and humour. Staged with vivid imagination, daring, and technological skill, the eight exceptional performers dance with a beauty that is wildly at odds with the cruelty of which they speak.

Mature subject matter -- suitable for ages 16 +

The persecution of people because of their sexual orientation is every bit as unjust as that crime against humanity, apartheid. We must all be allowed to love with honour.’
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
