Wee/Francesco Scavetta | Hardly Ever

Wee/Francesco Scavetta | Hardly Ever


Offbeat, funny and poetic, Hardly Ever is a delightfully inventive look at truth and falsehood, in the theatre and everyday life.

Combining dance, text and music, four performers use verbal statements to provoke physical responses. Surreal text meets its match in eccentric stage design- part kitsch mid-century tiki lounge, part Wes Anderson film set. With gaudy 70s wallpaper and costumes to match, _Hardly Ever_ takes us to places comforting and bizarre, strange yet familiar.

“an ever more complex performance of setting up and overturning expectations”  ARTSLANDIA, VANCOUVER

“Full of humour and universal images and scenarios, Scavetta’s style is quirky and cinematic” CENTRE STAGE, VANCOUVER
