Since our inception, art has been a one of our greatest tools to engage communities in a dialogue about diversity….so, it is with great pleasure that JersVision.org presents SAPPHO…in 9 fragments.
MAUREEN LIPMAN said: “The best theatrical experience I’ve had since New York 2011 and the Book of Mormon”.
SAPPHO …in 9 fragments by Jane Montgomery Griffiths makes its Canadian premiere June 2013 in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Peterborough. Directed by Ottawa native Jessica Ruano and featuring Victoria Grove, this politically-charged and visually-compelling solo performance achieved critical and popular acclaim in London, England with a sold-out extended run.
Within a secluded cavern, Ancient Greece’s first love poet laments her erasure from history, while a chorus girl named Atthis is seduced into a modern-day Sapphic romance.
Here is what the LONDON THEATRE CRITICS ARE SAYING…
“Uncommonly exhilarating” EXEUNT MAGAZINE ★★★★
“Victoria Grove is fantastic, she is magnetic and mysterious, dominating” REMOTE GOAT ★★★★
“Stunningly athletic and entirely sensuous” THE LADY ★★★★
“Written, directed, and executed with passion” FEMALE ARTS ★★★★
