"This is an amazing show! I was immediately seduced by the tightly choreographed physical comedy that director Tracey Guptill imposed on her troops, whipping them into some of the best ensemble shape I have seen at the festival. Most of the material is exceedingly clever (the founding story of the ecological movement ) which goes back to Adam and Eve’s real reason for leaving the garden of Eden: an ideological split of a special sort forced them to go their separate ways. The result, Eve travels the world to create a community of green conscious members who don’t always live up to her expectations, while Adam pops up at the most unexpected moments. Its wild and woolly, it explodes into hysterics, it satirizes the fanatics, it harnesses energy and produces tribal dancing and the musical accompaniment which also works as sound effects , created and performed by Scott Irving is perfectly suited to the action. It is an amazing flight of imagination where an uneven text is given an extremely exciting reading by this young director who shows enormous promise. Note that super Ottawa based performer Jen Vallence whom we rarely see in our city. This “Eve” , when not preventing global warming, must be hiding out in New York doing Broadway shows or something? And of course William Beddoes is his excellent self. This show reveals a ton of talent that I never suspected. Go see this one.
Emissions. A climate comedy written by Ann Cavlovic, directed by Tracey Guptill. "
