Canadian Stage presents the North American premiere of composer Njo Kong Kie’s first production of his Berkeley Street residency at Canadian Stage, Picnic in the Cemetery . This production includes Macau-based Folga Gaang Project in their Toronto debut. A hybrid musical performance, Picnic in the Cemetery juxtaposes the macabre with the whimsical. This concert-theatre piece features original compositions for violin, cello and piano, inviting audiences to muse about dying, but more importantly, to reflect on living.
April 26 – May 6 at the Berkeley Street Upstairs Theatre. www.canadianstage.com/picnic
