Stephen is a wandering poet/fool who creates poetic dreamscape odysseys. This year they are working on their multidisciplinary solo piece called Die Phantasie and touring living rooms in Toronto (Do you have a good one?). Stephen has acted in several productions across Canada including Angels in America, Botticelli in the Fire/Sunday in Sodom, The Glass Menagerie and Trout Stanley. Stephen is the poet in the Queer Songbook Orchestra. Stephen’s work explores the inherent power in people, the relationships between us and the unknowns within. They seek to create work that activates the soul and takes us into a world of unleashed imagination. Like Willy Wonka.
The Marble in the Basement by Hazel Meyer
Literally and figuratively centered on a pile of marble scraps that once belonged to Joyce Wieland, Meyer’s The Marble in the Basement untangles issues of power, memory and inheritance by anthropomorphizing a forgotten object from this influential Canadian artist’s domestic archive.
