rEvolver Festival Presents manidoons collective creation bug
bug is a timely reflection on the cycles of abuse and addiction in which too many Indigenous women in contemporary Canada find themselves. Yolanda Bonnell, an exciting young performer and playwright of Ojibwe and South Asian descent, was named one of NOW Magazine's Toronto theatre artists to watch in 2017. Bonnell gives life to this story with visibility and resilience through poetry, prose, and song.
bug is a solo physical theatre piece about the life of The Girl; taken from her alcoholic Mother and cycled through the damaging foster care system, The Girl develops an addictive personality that clings to anything that gives her power or makes her fe...el loved. As The Girl grows so do her addictions and they manifest as the creature Manidoons (Ojibway word for bug, insect or worm). When Manidoons takes over her addictions become more and more dangerous.
