Toronto: Crow’s Theatre presents the world premiere of “MixTape” by Zorana Sadiq on November 12

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

For writer, performer, and musician Zorana Sadiq (Towards Youth, Crow’s Theatre), sound is the first, last, and most influential sense. In the world premiere of her new solo show MixTape, directed by Crow’s Theatre Artistic Director Chris Abraham, Sadiq invites her audience into a life experienced through sounds and an obsession with making them.

From pop songs to show tunes to Mozart, and from squeaky oven doors to the thwap of a heartbeat on an ultrasound, Sadiq curates the ultimate mixtape in this one-woman tour-de-force performance.

A multidisciplinary artist of Pakistani descent, Zorana Sadiq creates work that is wide ranging and spans different types of performance, including theatre, television, chamber music, contemporary music, and opera. Sadiq has performed extensively in Canada and the United States alongside many of classical music’s leading conductors including Bramwell Tovey, Robert Spano, and Alex Pauk, and has appeared with Music Toronto at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, Vancouver Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Boston Musica Viva, and New York’s Da Capo Chamber Players.

A multi-media performance of life experienced through hungry ears, MIXTAPE invites audiences to hear the sounds in the world around them differently.

MixTape will also be the first show of Crow’s Theatre 21.22 season to be filmed and edited for a public digital run, as part of Crow’s #BMOVirtualStage series, December 2 to 19, 2021.
