Innovative UK-based Artist Tim Etchells and Leading Belgian Theatre Company Victoria Craft an Inimitable Contemporary Theatre Work with a Cast of Children

TORONTO, ON (February, 2009)Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage 08:09 season continues with That Night Follows Day, a performance piece written and directed by eminent artist Tim Etchells, artistic director of Britain’s celebrated Forced Entertainment, and produced by prominent theatre organization Victoria (BEL) that brought the acclaimed Aalst to World Stage in 2007. A Canadian premiere, this wholly unique creation includes a cast of 16 children between the ages of eight and fourteen, and arrives at Harbourfront Centre’s Fleck Dance Theatre, February 25 through February 28, 2009.

Single tickets and specially priced packages for That Night Follows Day and all World Stage performances are on sale through the Harbourfront Centre box office at 416-973-4000, or through

“You feed us. You wash us. You dress us. You sing to us. You watch us when we are sleeping. You make promises that you think we won’t remember.”

That Night Follows Day is the second piece in a series of Victoria productions with child actors but performed for an adult audience. Derived from text written by Etchells, the performance uses factual observations to playfully and provocatively explore how a child’s world is shaped by adults.

With great clarity and humour, That Night Follows Day examines the systems of parenthood, upbringing, discipline, care and welfare that define children’s and adolescents’ worlds. The performance not only explores the ways that adults project onto children but also the ways that adults and children are both shaped by the language they use to describe their experiences. Original, humourous and thoughtful, this production promises to be one of the most talked-about of Toronto's theatre season.
