Music for Contortionist
About the Book
In Morwyn Brebner’s stunning playwriting debut, Veleska Gert—1930s cabaret star, avant-garde performance artist—explains life, love, and art from her own unique perspective. By turns hilarious and moving, Music for a Contortionist is a wild ride.
Nominated for two Dora Mavor Moore Awards, including Best New Play.“(A) brilliant monologue…a sparkling and twisting metaphor for performance…powerful.”
—The Globe & Mail
“Quirky and sardonic…laced with acid-tinged zingers.”
