× Inspired by experiences of growing up queer in Jamaica and finding home in Canada, speaking of sneaking is about displacement, desperation and deception. A multidisciplinary mash-up of dance, poetry and pantomime where the archetypal Jamaican ginnal and the mythical African Anansi meet.

speaking of sneaking is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Government of Canada.

In order to create more access and opportunity for artists, Why Not Theatre is looking at new ways of producing theatre in Toronto for independent artists. The RISER Project brings together a community of senior leadership and emerging artists, to support the artistic risk that independent artists must take in order to create and innovate. The model is designed to maximize existing infrastructures by sharing resources, risk and energy to reduce the producing burden on artists. RISER senior partners for 2018 are Aluna Theatre, Buddies in Bad Times, Cahoots, Factory Theatre, fu-GEN Theatre, Modern Times, Necessary Angel, Nightwood Theatre, Obsidian Theatre, Shaw Festival, Roseneath Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille and The Theatre Centre. RISER is made possible with the generous support of the Government of Canada.
