Directed by Jonathan Seinen

February 13 – 17, 2018

A raw, intimate, and timely exploration of queer male Blackness

Black Boys is created from the lives of three Black men seeking a deeper understanding of themselves, of each other, and of how they encounter the world. As they explore their unique identities on stage, they subvert the ways in which gender, sexuality, and race are performed. Theatrical and intimate, Black Boys weaves together the ensemble’s own personal stories in search of an integrated self and a radical imagination.

At the heart of Black Boys is Saga Collectif, an impressive ensemble of skilled young artists. The three performers – Stephen Jackman-Torkoff, Tawiah Ben M’Carthy, and Thomas Olajide – have been seen on the stages of the Shaw Festival, the National Arts Centre, Canadian Stage, and the Stratford Festival, where Thomas received the Peter Donaldson Award. Stephen recently appeared in the Dora Award-winning double bill Botticelli in the Fire & Sunday in Sodom(Canadian Stage) and Buddies audiences will remember Tawiah from his Dora Award-winning show Obaaberima. Director Jonathan Seinen has been the creative force behind such innovative indie productions as Unknown Soldier (lemonTree creations) and Like There’s No Tomorrow (Architect Theatre), while Dora Award-nominee Virgilia Griffith choreographs after establishing herself as a formidable performer in her own right, most recently in Obsidian Theatre’s production of Up the Garden Path.

Presented in English with French Surtitles
