“The company that’s bringing me to my critical knees is Toronto’s Bluemouth Inc…the images are by turn exquisite, frightening and hypnotic.”

WHAT THE THUNDER SAID is a Dora Award winning performance work that evokes the struggle for acceptance in the calm before the family storm.

Originally created in 2002 as the third part of a five-hour trilogy entitled, Something About a River, What The Thunder Said explores the notion of ambivalence, utilizing the family as a model to examine the political and emotional contradictions that face today’s society.

“This powerful show by site-specific troupe bluemouth inc. takes us (by bus, blindfolded) to an undisclosed location, where we see evocative, suggestive scenes unfold with bold theatricality and heartbreaking beauty. Unforgettable.”
