Your Name: Zeesy Powers

Your Role: Performer

Tell me about your SummerWorks show:

I will tell you exactly what I think of you in front of a live audience while a remote audience watches on the internet.

Now do it as a Haiku:

You want to know how
You appear to a stranger
Or, someone you know

What else are you looking forward to at the festival this year?

Common Fate, my other production for four dancers.

The best thing about the Toronto theatre scene?

The audience.

The worst thing about the Toronto theatre scene?

How hard it is to find.

A Hypothetical: A week before the municipal election, a strange parasite contaminates the Toronto drinking water system, turning the vast majority of citizens into narrow-minded zombie-boobs with a pathological hatred of streetcars, and Rob Ford is shockingly re-elected for another four year term. What is your artistic response?

A series of reality-TV show pitches to the mayor’s office, including Rob and Justin: Roommates, where Rob Ford and Justin Trudeau share a basement bachelor apartment, and Who Runs This Show?, where Rob Ford and Sarah Thompson get married and run this city Bill and Hilary Clinton-style.
