Inspired by real heartbreak stories now and then; some given, some found, some stolen. An act of public self-help, melodrama and poetic meanderings around our perpetual preoccupation with this pumping organ.
Alba is a performance about paleness, blending in and standing out. Influenced by the artist’s experience as a person with albinism, the performance takes its title from the Italian word Alba, meaning sublime light.
With the rise of more people living a single existence, this piece explores where the pressure comes from to cohabit/marry. Is it society? Ourselves? Or is it centered on our need to prove our emotional independence?

Open House is not a show. It’s an invitation.
Chris Goode & Company launched its Open House format in 2011. The way it works is simple. A core group of CG&Co artists walks into a theatre on a Monday morning, to start a process from scratch – with nothing but themselves and maybe a few unformed ideas to jump off from.
During the course of the week, they work together with whoever wants to join in, to make a performance that the assembled company shares with an audience on the Friday evening.
Join us for a day of discussion about this thing we call ‘artist development’. What does it mean? Why is it important? And how could we all take a small bit of responsibility for it working a bit better?
KICKIN’ IT WITH THE KINKS is a self-funded film that started as Cynthia’s university project. After receiving a prize for best documentary in her department, Cynthia and her good friend Mundia, Blackgirlflow co-owner, decided to produce a longer version to raise awareness about the complexities of haircare among women and especially among women of African descent.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT, admission includes free refreshments!
