Harbourfront Centre says
The Maids, Jean Genet’s drama about power, costume and class, meets choreography from Pontecorvo’s 1966 film,The Battle of Algiers. An event powered by the lurking appetite for something hard and direct and the latent energy of the pressure of choice.

In residence: May 2–6
Presentation: May 7

Leslie Katz has a longstanding interest in post-war avant-garde French and postcolonial drama. Her current work seeks to challenge the identity that has ossified around Genet as a gay playwright, engaging him, instead, in the more dicey capacity of his sadomasochism. Liz Peterson is a performance-maker and actor, whose work has appeared most recently in the SummerWorks Festival, the AGO, experimental comedy night Doored, NAVE, Forest City Gallery and the University of Toronto's Art Centre. Vanessa Dunn is an actor, community activist and lead singer of VAG HALEN. In this grouping, the three artists are engaged with asking the very simple question, what is freedom?

Harbourfront Centre's annual performing arts residency and presentation series, HATCH is a situation where new work and new audiences come together in the spirit of inquiry.
