“Bastard.” started as a poem I didn’t write, but was written for me to speak out loud— one that I have since learned all the words to. In several ways, it’s a play about me.
It is about many other things as well. It's about longing, pain, a can of orange bubly, a big comfy couch, one person, several people. It’s inadvertently (but perhaps more importantly) about four friends, a bar with disgustingly low lighting, 2019, and desperation. Above all else, this play is about love and the way it transcends linear time— the way it fills space and leaks into cracks; scatters breadcrumbs between home and away, leaves nothing empty and everything unfinished.
“Bastard.” is a love letter.
This is a play about you.
Out From Under The Rug exists to platform the work and voices of IBPOC artists, ensuring a safe and accessible environment. Our current focus is to locally develop and present culturally specific theatre, providing the opportunity for Winnipeg’s under-represented communities to not only see themselves in our stories, but be actively engaged in the creation. Through community engagement, facilitated education, and presentation of IBPOC work, we are looking forward to growing into a sustainable organization that can provide a trusted space for IBPOC artists to present work that would often otherwise be swept under the rug.
