Buddies in Bad Times Theatre
12 Alexander Street, Toronto


Presented by FADO in the context of the Part of the 33rd Rhubarb Festival 

"When I was younger I used to copy photographs of animals from books into my sketchpad. I used to be good at making the animals look realistic, which is why I went on to study art. I dont draw pictures of animals anymore and Im not sure if what I do now has any relation to that activity, but somehow I got from there to here under the guise of art. I studied at Goldsmiths in London and have since done performances at art festivals and comedy nights in places such as Whitstable, Hildesheim and Aberystwyth. Now I mostly write scripts and texts and perform them.

Expectations started with the question; what do I hope to gain when going to see a performance? As I have spent a fair amount of time over the past couple of years doing them, seeing them and talking about them, Expectations is way of thinking about what it is in performances that leaves me feeling dissatisfied."
