Sonderlings @ Kings Playhouse
Mar 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Sonderlings is a trio full of eccentric, fateful and repetitive movements complimenting a dark cautionary tale from the 1700s, “The Man of Double Deed.”
Nostos Collectives is a group of dance artists based in Halifax and Toronto. The collective creates their own performance opportunities several times per year where the dancers are encouraged to collaborate and choreograph amongst each other. Embracing contemporary as their main form of expression, they include a variety of styles within that form which is demonstrated in the stylistic diversity of the dancers in Nostos.

FEATURING

ROWENA AND HANK STINSON

In 1902 the government of Prince Edward Island banned the sale of alcohol to it’s citizens thus beginning the longest, most successful cottage industry the Island has ever known. For nearly fifty years rum running and bootlegging provided a living for countless Islanders and fortunes for a few enterprising businessmen including Captain Edward Dicks from Georgetown. His legendary rum running schooner, The Nellie J Banks, was eventually seized by the prohibition police and hauled into the government wharf in Charlottetown. Captain Dicks was thrown into jail and subsequently prosecuted by the Canadian Department of Customs and Excise. But we don’t want to give everything away, so come to the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown and find out how it all ended.
