Toronto artist Magalie Rouillard-Bazinet presents a local production of Sanctuary by Emil Sher.First Performed at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 1991, this touching story of two lives destined to intersect for the better has been performed all over the world in the succeeding 20 years.
Canadian playwright Emil Sher is also known for his theatrical adaptation of Hana’s Suitcase, recurrently produced by Young People’s Theatre since 2006.
Performed by fresh local faces, Rufio Parker and Trish Rainone, Rouillard-Bazinets direction brings new life to this emotional whirlwind of a one-act.
Magalie Rouillard-Bazinet, a former George Brown Theatre student, is directing Sanctuary, and wearing the producer hat for the first time. This Québec City native has many strings to her bow: she acts, dances, sings, writes poetry slam and is also an acrobat. Sanctuary is her third directed piece. She believes performing arts should raise awareness about social, political and cultural issues, open minds, heal wounds, as well as entertain its audience.
