Swirling animation and sonic hi-jinx make the poetry of Canada’s 1970s avant-garde scene leap off the page and onto the stage. Based on the work of Toronto’s original Four Horsemen, their outrageously fun, sonic poetry is brought to life by a stellar cast of performers. A multi-disciplinary extravaganza, this remarkable collaboration breathes life into the iconoclastic, brilliant, and delightfully irreverent work that set the whole world on its ear.
