Jillian Peever Dance Creations proudly announces the world premiere of The Mystery of Mr. Leftovers, a contemporary performance piece that merges dynamic dance with outrageous theatrics – and the first ever, full-length solo work performed by Jillian Peever. Acclaimed dance artist Sharon B. Moore (K.M. Hunter Award nominee, triple Dora nominee) choreographs and directs, while dance icon Peggy Baker (Governor General’s Award for Lifetime Achievement) acts as Peever’s solo-performance mentor.
Both of these highly esteemed veterans will guide and challenge this emerging dance artist as she inhabits this extraordinary creation. The Mystery of Mr. Leftovers runs Thursday, February 25 to Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 8pm nightly at the Winchester Street Theatre in Toronto’s Cabbagetown area.
The Mystery of Mr. Leftovers is a desperate and uncomfortable plea for companionship and love. In a series of odd circumstantial adventures, Mr. Leftovers searches through the echoes of his own history leaving him somewhat unassembled. His interior world is made up of leftover thoughts: thoughts he did not communicate but wanted to, the thoughts of others, stuttering recapitulations of self-commentary, analysis and extreme – sometimes socially unacceptable – behaviour. He seeks to build himself up by discovering, readjusting and fulfilling his own legend of himself, whether true or false. He survives his past traps and illusions by creating new ones. After all, we are what we create.
