SOUND OF THE BEAST


  • Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace 16 Ryerson Avenue Toronto, ON, M5T 2P3 Canada

In her solo performance Sound of the Beast, two-time Governor General’s Award Nominee Donna-Michelle St. Bernard (aka Belladonna the Blest) speaks truth to power using spoken word, storytelling, and hip-hop.  Inspired by Tunisian emcee Weld-El 15 - who was jailed for his song Boulicia Kleb (The Police Are Dogs) – St. Bernard riffs on oppression, poverty, and systemic injustice. Sound of the Beast highlights St, Bernard’s quick wit and quicker rhymes in a multimedia performance that reflects on questions of identity, the decision to call out authority, and what happens when authority strikes back
