“What does it mean that you’re losing money on your performance? What does it mean that to be a successful artist you need to be supported by a family member or partner?”
💸✨💸✨
Emma Doran (@j_a_z_z_h_a_n_d_s) reflects on Eroca Nicols' Truthteller, a performance work which allows the oft-discreet details of production finances to bask in the stage light.
⚡️📜⚡️📜
Presented by @summerworks_festival, Nicols’ interactive presentation engages with performance economics, rituals and intimacies between bodies in a way that breaks open the roles of audience and performer.
🧢💫🧢💫
Performed by Nicols (@erocanicols), "Lady Janitor" (Madeleine Shen Lopez) and Carly Boyce (@tinylanterntarot), Truthteller features a tender slow dance, a kiddie pool “in drag”, a baseball cap with a third eye, crystals, live tattooing, and lots of golden glitter.
💉🌟💉🌟
"...it feels like medicine. The glitter sticks to her wet body, to us, and makes a lake of molten gilt…”
To end we are invited to stand and sing Like a Prayer together. We step-together-step-touch and sway along. It could feel forced and corny, but it feels like cleansing, as I imagine a ritual should. It’s not corny; it’s communal.”

'Fantasylover' one of the pearls of the Summerworks Performance Festival '18. Performed by five women who showed a genius parody of modern dance, Shakespeare, women, men, Canadian Olympics and millenials. It was extremely absurdistic and recognizable at the same time👌@rhea_pennata

The other day! What’s the girl version of bromance? #wehavethat #summerdays☀️ #summerworksfestival

Thank you so much for telling our story. Tomorrow night is the last show! Go watch it! Let the Hong Kong story be heard. So long as I can breathe, or my eyes can see, so long lives the Hong Kong spirit, and this gives life to thee. P.S. So crazy how I reunited with a fellow HKer that I used to collaborate with in the HK theatre world. #hongkonger #hongkong #summerworks #summerworksfestival #summerworks2018 #theextinctionofhongkongers #theatreTO

It’s taken me some time to collect my thoughts on this journey of ZAYO but I’m ready to share. This journey has taught me if you are serving than there is no need to market. I am stronger than I give myself credit for. That some things that are made to break are actually there to mold you to become better. That a lot more people are able to identify with your pain than you think. •

Thank you to everyone: my dancers @kwasi.obeng @mzlaurenlyn @gomeztwisted @callmereina @shaiannroach @smxallz your dedication to my vision allowed it to come alive in a beautiful way that I will never forget. •
To @ddanieleguevara you’re one of a kind my lady. Thank you for elevating my vision to new heights!


@akos2030 for your knowledge and wisdom. We truly create beautiful art together.
To @edzgyam @simonetrav @amy.missy thank you for helping to make this whole thing possible. I appreciate you.
To @summerworks_festival and @laura.nanni for bringing me and my sistren @flyladydi together it truly was a dream come true. Thank you!

To everyone that came or tried to come and support this SOLD OUT RUN! I thank you! This has been an unforgettable journey! One I will always remember! Including my donors, even though I didn’t reach my goal I appreciate every act of love that you put forward to help make this dream possible!
Countdown is on...next up SHADES @factorytheatre September 27-30
