City Brings The Fringe to The Quarters Downtown
August 14, 2012
The City of Edmonton has helped a local theatre group stage a Fringe production in The Quarters Downtown. TOKYO 1965 is a new play directed by Jake Hastey and written by Timothy J. Anderson, a Boyle Street community resident and award-winning playwright. The development and production of TOKYO 1965 is supported in part by the City of Edmonton Quarters Downtown project.
August 17-21 – 7:30pm
August 22-26 – 2pm
Location: The Artery (9535 Jasper Avenue)
Tickets: $12.50; $10 seniors/student at the Fringe box office or at the door
The play is an operatic fantasy set in Tokyo, and follows the journey of an Italian opera singer forced to choose between life without a voice… or death. The Bonze and Velvet Co-op chose The Artery (9535 Jasper Avenue) for their BYOV (Bring Your Own Venue) as one of the community’s renewal-through-art initiatives. These include the Dirt City: Dream City transitory art project, located near the venue, as well as projection art and other upcoming events at the new Boyle Street Community Centre.
