The Jester: Jests in Time
Time & Location
About The Event
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all love to laugh. For centuries, we have revelled in the humour of light-hearted jests and gags as vehicles to express our amusement and joy. But what happens when comedy takes a dark turn? When we use humour to cover up our insecurities and resentment? The Spectrum composers and guest composer Simone Baron contemplate the complexity of comedy.
A dangerously hilarious pre-concert monologue by an emerging Toronto comedian will open the stage for an ensemble featuring accordionist Simone Baron, the Odin String quartet, and an interpretive dancer.
