Harbourfront Centre Welcomes the English-Language Premiere of Québec-based Brassard’s Newest Mesmerizing Creation from her Company Infrarouge

TORONTO, ON – November, 2008 – Montréal’s legendary multidisciplinary performer, Marie Brassard, returns to Toronto December 3 through December 6, 2008, with the English-language premiere of her newest original solo performance The Invisible. The Enwave Theatre is the venue for the latest instalment of World Stage 08:09, the season’s eighth production.

Single tickets and specially priced packages for all World Stage performances are on sale through the Harbourfront Centre box office at 416-973-4000, or through www.harbourfrontcentre.com/worldstage

Written, directed and performed by Marie Brassard, The Invisible weaves movement, music and sound design with complex theatrical lighting and set design. Brassard’s creation had its world premiere at the 2008 Festival TransAmériques (FTA) in Montréal to much acclaim.

A tour de force on stage, in film and television, Brassard’s incredible career has brought her to screens and stages all over the world, where she has worked with such luminaries as Robert Lepage and UK filmmaker Michael Winterbottom. For decades Brassard has captivated Toronto audiences, most recently as director of The Glass Eye as part of Luminato 2008 at the Enwave Theatre, and the smash sell-out hits Peepshow (World Stage Flying Solo, 2005) and Jimmy, créature de rêve (2001). The Invisible continues to examine the themes of identity and reality explored in these works, as Brassard attempts to harness the mysterious and elusive forms that lurk within all people.
