Theatre Passe Muraille
Written and performed by Donna-Michelle St.Bernard
Direction/Dramaturgy by Andy McKim and Jivesh Parasram
This solo piece by two-time Governor General’s Award Nominee Donna-Michelle St.Bernard (aka Belladonna the Blest) speaks truth to power using spoken word, storytelling and hip-hop. Inspired by Tunisian emcee Weld-El 15 – who was jailed for his song Boulicia Kleb (The Police Are Dogs) – the show highlights St.Bernard’s quick wit and quicker rhymes in a performance that reflects on identity, oppression and what happens when authority is questioned.
Talkback following September 20th performance, facilitated by Tamika Krush in partnership with QPOC Winnipeg
