Part storytelling, part concert, this is a tale of love heard best through a tin-can telephone.
The story of Gwendolyn Magnificent and Bartholomew Spectacular starts with demanding dragon fruits and ends with heartache whispered into the ears of birds and constellations. With spoons, water glasses, whirly- winds and a mandolin, the performers create the sounds and images of a landscape forever altered by regret.
Since 2009, Mi Casa has performed the multi-award- winning Countries Shaped Like Stars across Canada and New Mexico. Their site-adaptive work sells out to audiences of all ages in theatres, cafes, bars, church basements, living rooms and festivals.
Ottawa’s Mi Casa makes performance that straddles genres – part theatre, part music, part community hang outs, always live. Their six shows have toured to over 40 venues in 17 cities across Canada. Their work has been nominated for 20 Prix Rideau awards and honoured with seven.
“Gently unhinges language and logic, so that we can play in the spaces between words and bathe in the emotions that underlie reason. Another way of saying this is that Countries Shaped Like Stars makes you feel as openhearted and happy as a kid.” – Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight
