Why We Fight (music + sound design)

  • Redwood Theatre 1300 Gerrard Street East Toronto, ON, M4L 1Y7 Canada (map)


Crux Encounter Productions is proud to announce the World Premiere of a new theatre piece that explores the stories of fighting and violence.

Directed by Tyler Seguin

**Original music and sound design by Alex Eddington.

Why do we fight? Why do we love to watch others fight?

 From slapstick to sport, cartoons to armed combat, violence is an integral part of human interaction and storytelling, and yet we seldom recognize it on its own merits. Why is violence so linked to the human experience? Why do we find it satisfying, terrifying, and even amusing? In a series of scenes and sketches, WHY WE FIGHT takes on the challenge of dissecting, slicing, and pummelling our ideas of conflict into passionate, perplexing, and sometimes hilarious submission.

Limited run with only three performances, Why We Fight is being performed at 1300 Gerrard St. E.

November 17, 2:00pm & 8:00pm
