Post No Bills
- Then Speak
- Created by the company
In the 1950s a Toronto neighbourhood of immigrant communities was wiped off the map order to make way for a new City Hall. We weren’t alive then. We grew up hearing nothing about The Ward. We found out about it by accident.
Post No Bills tells the incomplete story of a vanished part of our city through a cut loose exploration of memory, record-keeping and time. Music, rectangles, citizenship papers, bbq pork buns, Bharatanatyam, archaeology, sensual dancing and way too many boxes collide in an impossible attempt to compress memories of The Ward into 55 minutes of theatre.
