NEXT STAGE | BODY SO FLUORESCENT BY MADONNANERA
January 11-14, 2018

What happened last night on the dance floor? Two friends attempt to retrace their steps to figure out just how it all ended in an explosive fight. In their effort to figure out the facts, both friends shift from self to alter-ego and are met with stunning revelations. BODY SO FLUORESCENT is inviting and outrageous -asking difficult questions about blackness, otherness and relational oppressions.

BODY SO FLUORESCENT returns to Calgary from its premiere at the IGNITE! Festival in June 2017, where it received an overwhelmingly positive response. After tour stops in Stratford and the United States, madonnanera is thrilled to finesse and finalize BODY SO FLUORESCENT at Theatre Junction GRAND.

Tickets: $20
