Cut And Paste Project: Macbeth
A Fundraiser for TTOK supported by Public Energy Performing Arts
Thursday July 29- Friday July 30: 5:00pm & 8:00 pm
Saturday July 31: 2:00pm & 8:00pm
The Theatre on King (171 King St, Peterborough)
It’s the launch of Cut and Paste Macbeth!
Thank you for patiently awaiting the announcement of this screening. This experiment has been an incredible learning experience and immensely rewarding undertaking that has both haunted, and seen me through, the pandemic.
Over a year ago, 35 brave performers agreed to film themselves at home, in secret, with no direction and no co-stars, creating the footage that would be stitched together to create this experimental performance of Macbeth. It is finally finished, the cast can be revealed and we can share all our hard work with a real live audience! A truly absurd endeavour, this show highlights the fantastical and difficult circumstances surrounding the pandemic and celebrates the resilience of our community. For an experience that juxtaposes the oddly humorous with the grimness of Macbeth and isolation, join us for the screening, support TTOK and the many artists surviving these strange times and making strange work.

This convergence of forms propels our artists to create wholly unique choreography to counter the never before seen apparatus, creating an environment of synergetic inspiration and innovation. Flying Solo fosters a collaborative working culture where Intergenerational skill sharing has become a mainstay of our creative process. The trailblazers in our communities impart knowledge of their ample experience while new skills and forms are welcomed to ensure the continual growth and development of our art.

Produced by Fleshy Thud
in partnership with Public Energy
Precarious3 will be Fleshy Thud’s fourth multi-arts festival since 2016. The festivals have arguably become the region’s most vital forums for artist-driven investigations of precarity. Previous Precarious Festivals revealed hunger for deepening investigation around financial and artistic precarity, decolonization, and economic justice. Fleshy Thud has engaged a wide range of artists and non-arts participants, youth, newcomers, BIPOC artists, and others making vital work that often flies under the radar.
