(This is the first of two repeat performances on the same evening — the second, at 8:30pm, is listed below)
Back by popular demand, Stroma explores the hip laneways of musical experimentalism. Composed theatre, musical bodies, comic strips, bandaging and a bit of Laura Branigan will star in this offbeat, set of works that you will be thinking about long after the show is over.
