Spoken Word Poet and Playwright Vanessa Smythe takes Toronto East End Performance Crawl with her stand-up musical piece In Case We Disappear
We're so excited to have stumbled upon Vanessa Smythe at this year's East End Performance Crawl in Toronto. Her adorable, hilarious, musical, spoken word, epic way of handling story telling in her newest piece In Case We Disappear makes us think twice about the normalcy of, our old friend, Dialogue and any other playwriting entities that we've determined to be necessity. Smythe teaches us otherwise as she invents new ways of giving over a beautifully woven monologue and a masterfully enchanting story.
Smythe is a skilled interdisciplinary artist. She's mentored with famed Canadian talents d’bi Young, Daniel MacIvor, Tanya Evanson, and Christian Bok. She has been featured in theatre, film and poetry slams throughout Toronto (and otherwise) and her philosophy background shines through her writing as she tangles deliriously intelligent insights into love and all things personal.
If you're in Toronto, don't miss the brilliance that is Vanessa Smythe. Take yourself on the ride that's been called "a fully experiential love letter to all those who vanish" and check out In Case We Disappear at this year's East End Performance Crawl in Toronto.
