Becoming

Erum Khan

A woman confined in purgatory grapples with fractured memories of her life. Inspired by the work of avant-garde filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist Maya Deren, Becoming delves into a stream of consciousness exploration of our identities and their ongoing metamorphosis of continued motion through discontinued space. Developed at the Emerging Creators Unit at Buddies. Directed by Liz Peterson.

Blanket Fort

Leaping Mammal Collective

Blanket Fort explores the messy lives of three roommates. They share a small top floor apartment in a old building. They struggle to deal with themselves and, of course, their evil landlord. They like to drink. In a world where very real, very dark forces control the best hangout spots, our roommates fail to chill, and find themselves up to their necks in feathers and moustache hairs.

Blanket Fort is the first work created by Leaping Mammal Collective. Leaping Mammal is a budding theatre company in Ottawa and is very excited to be playing in the fringe this year! Leaping Mammal’s mandate is to create collectively and embrace the absurd.
An initial version of the show premiered as an opening act for the Fringe Encore production of Dead Unicorn Ink’s very popular Ten Little Sinners in October 2017. The initial version was about 20 min in length. The work received very well by our audiences. We were praised both for our relatable characters, and creative staging. We then decided to extend Blanket Fort to a full one act play! Both the initial and full length version of the show were created collectively by the cast.
