The Fringe Fest Returns to FSR!

posted 2 Jun 2016, 08:17 by fsr admin

Like clockwork, June means the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival is back and we're happy to be an OFF venue for the festival once again! We're hosting three shows between June 2nd and June 19th:

- Origin: A Story Through Song - June 2-19
Origin tells the story of fall from grace and coming of age through song and movement. The songs will be performed in a raw A Cappella fashion with strong Blues undercurrents, alternating between solos and harmonies and using the environment and body to create a compelling and immersive experience. Produced by and starring FSR member Caroline Gauthier (eagle-eyed readers may remember that she put up a shorter version of this piece at the ShortStanding Festival back in February).

- The Passage - June 2 to June 18
At the height of the Klondike Gold Rush, Nellie Garner becomes the first woman to attempt the Edmonton trail to the Yukon. As she confronts the great risks involved in seeking great fortune, the journey becomes a test of her bravery and ambition - and her will to survive. Produced and starring FSR member Jen Viens, this piece is another that graduated from our ShortStanding Festival (the 2015 edition, in this case).

- Atomic City - June 3 to June 18
Jeff Gandell invades the room to bring us this mad, historical piece. In a secret city developing a new weapon to end World War II, a scientist and his assistant plunge into a forbidden love affair. They soon discover that there are some endeavors more volatile than splitting the atom. And just as explosive.
