Leaving home, and going home

Work explores geographic, emotional isolation

By: Alison Mayes

We’ve all heard of stuffed shirts.

Stuffed parkas, not so much.

But bulky winter jackets – some stuffed and some hollow – worn in quirky ways and “animated” by actor/dancers play a part in The Island.

The partly humorous performance, which presents abstract images rather than a conventional storyline, explores the struggle to connect with other human beings.

núna(now) will present the production of “Sargent & Victor” by Deb Patterson, in both Brandon and Winnipeg. This solo play is created from a series of interviews Patterson conducted with past and present residents of this iconic Winnipeg intersection. Sargent and Victor was the early urban settlement of immigrant Icelanders but has lately become an area known for gang violence and crime.
