Quick Selfie: SIPA

QDF had the chance to play Word Association. It is a game where we asked different artists from the Student-Initiated Projects Assignment Festival (SIPA), to tell what was the first impression when their heard the titles of other shows in the festival. Let’s see what they had to say

Doctor, Doctor!

Representing the show in the video is Nicholas Lindsay, actor.

Written for this event, this dark musical comedy brings the audience into a world everybody knows for certain: a patient hopes to get some advice from a visit to the doctor, but gets nothing he hoped for, but more than he had expected.

Little One

In this psycho-thriller by award winning Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch, adopted siblings Aaron and Claire struggle to understand love and trauma. Their story, paralleled with that of their neighbours, asks how do we love those who can’t, or won’t, love us back?


This piece showcases performers as themselves, exploring aspects of their life and personalities in the hopes of creating interpersonal connectivity with the audience through performance. The process of making the performance is as important as the final product itself.

White Noise

As part of the Department’s Erlangen exchange, students from both Canada and Germany work collectively to create a post dramatic work that examines precarious identities. Recent political topics from both Europe and Canada are examined in the culmination of a six-month exchange program.

There are also these others shows in the festival:

The Story of Mess: Kelsey and Peter Make Soup

In their object based theatre piece the performers create scenes with everyday objects to explore the themes of the body, resistance, politics, and puppetry. Using play to battle the workaholic progress monster this duo make soup and a mighty big mess.


Part clown, part reality TV and part talk show, Vitro explores the inner workings of how media is consuming and manipulating all of us. The show is raising questions, gullible viewers often don’t want to think about.
