A Tonic for Desperate Times
his November, Theatre Gargantua returns to the stage with a powerful new cycle of work, two years in the making. Emerging from a global state of isolation and uncertainty, Gargantua presents a vital exploration of hope: A Tonic for Desperate Times. This world premiere investigates our instinct for optimism, and the surprising places hope can be found — in the fractal patterns of nature, the swing of a pendulum, the murmuration of starlings in flight.
A Tonic for Desperate Times is a richly layered work born out of Gargantua's signature exploratory workshops. This riveting performance interweaves provocative stories, live music, striking choreography, and stunning design true to Theatre Gargantua’s unique, Dora Award-winning style.
And it can all be experienced in person. Gargantua is at the forefront of Toronto’s return to theatres.
