Quantum Calamity

Aerial Antics

Not again! Dr Clara Brown and her assistants–a madcap trio of time-travelling steampunks–have run into trouble with the Ministry of Temporal Affairs. What could it be this time? The registration was filed properly, and the licences were in hand 6 months before departure. . .

Hop on board as Aerial Antics weaves together their signature blend of comedy, visual effects and high-flying aerial acrobatics in this original production featuring circus, theatre, and a touch of spacetime bureaucracy.

Biography:

Aerial Antics, founded in 2015, is Ottawa’s “vertical theatre” company. Created to facilitate and motivate participation in aerial circus arts, the name “Aerial Antics” reflects this troupe’s playful approach to choreography and theatrics.

Aerial Antics has performed as part of popular Ottawa events such as Glowfair Festival, Nature Nocturne, Lumière Festival, Comiccon, and Kidsfest. They continue to explore new ways to merge art, theater and acrobatic skill into original and engaging performances.

Scaredy Cat

Carlyn Rhamey

Award-winning storyteller Carlyn Rhamey (The ADHD Project, SAOR) returns with tons of new comedic tales of being afraid…of everything. From the things that go bump in the night to scary movies, haunted houses, the ocean, everything in the ocean, everything in the water, her job, wrinkles, death, FOMO, sleepovers, dinosaurs, glitter, cheese graters, first graders, ghosts, the cover of Goosebumps novels and…her mother. Scaredy Cat explores a not-so-typical but totally relatable mother/daughter relationship as childhood fears transition into real life big girl fears, and what it could all possibly mean.

Stick or Wizard?

Oli Weatherly

“A hilarious waste of time!”

Gaulier-trained clown and ramblin’ rebel, Oli Weatherly, invites you to take a trip with him into the unknown. To meet two unusual guys; one, a man who dreams of the ultimate freedom – to be a Stick; the other, a Wizard.

On the surface, Stick or Wizard? is a surreal comedy; underneath the story of a man finding magic in every moment.

Part autobiography. Part story telling. All pure idiocy.

The Key to Time Travel

Allison Elizabeth Burns

What is the key to time travel? It’s easier than you think. We’re doing it right now. I’m writing this, thinking about you – and now you’re reading it, thinking about me. Present tense, days apart.

The Key to Time Travel is a theatrical contemporary dance duet inspired by the groove, strength, and shapes of Breakdance. It treads the brilliant borderland between reality and magic. The dancers travel through time by dropping memory markers/keys in specific moments in the past, present, and future. They want to know: can we somehow reach people who are here in a different “now”?

Each show will feature an open act choreographed by a different local contemporary dance artist; Geoffrey Dollar (June 13), Alya Graham (June 15), Cathy Kyle (June 16), Sarah Hopkin (June 18), Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson (June 21), and Mizuki Hoshino (June 23).

Critics’ reactions to Allisoneb’s 2017 Ottawa Fringe production:
“It’s unusual to walk into a room and experience beauty, but Do You Want To Live Forever? is an exercise in the sublime […] I was captivated.” – David Currie, Apt613

“Delightful and mesmerizing. Allison Burns is a gorgeous dancer, exemplifying poetry in motion” – Allan Mackey, On Stage

Show credits: Allison Elizabeth Burns – Project Instigator & Choreographer | Amanda Bon, Chelsea Passmore, and Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson – Collaborating Performers | Tristan Henry – Composer and Creator of Original Score | Travis Martin – Writer and Story Consultant | Keir Knight – Choreographic Consultant | Yvonne Coutts – Mentor
