CRAWL: Dreaming of Rob Ford
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
VENUE: Big Picture Cinema, 1035 Gerrard St. E.
Created for Toronto’s current moment by North America’s leading monologist. From political performance art to celebrity biography, Rob Ford has become our favorite court jester and punching bag—but what does his international fame tell us about how our world works? Daisey peels back the layers behind crack-smoking, crazy-shoving, and late-night talk show shenanigans to get at uncomfortable truths about how we construct fame, who we think we’re laughing at, and what it means when we play the fool. From the creator of headline-making exposé, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs.
“The master storyteller—one of the finest solo performers of his generation.”
