|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from November 24 to December 2, 2017
Monument National, 1182 St-Laurent Boulevard
Montreal, QC H2X 2S5 Canada

An audacious pair of stories about the lives of young Canadian women, Boys With Cars is set in a Canadian high school where cultures collide, women struggle for status, and dancing raises the temperature of every moment. Featuring classical Indian, Bollywood and hip-hop music and choreography, the piece tells the story of Naznin, a classically trained dancer who dreams of leaving her small town for the bright lights of the city. Here, we are invited into her life and witness her struggle to balance her traditional heritage, her tumultuous relationships with the boys in her high school, and realizing her potential. It is a coming-of-age piece with tremendous comic flourish and potent dances, that is at once bold and innovative while being wildly funny and engaging.

Presented by Geordie Productions at Monument-National.

Since the Big Bang, sinister figures have taken advantage of London’s newly deregulated market, prioritizing profit, greed and personal interests. Amidst the looming threat of investigation, boardroom drug deals, and billionaire backstabbing, Scilla must decide how much she’ll risk to find her brother’s killer and his missing millions.
