Now You See Her

Created by Lisa Karen Cox, Maggie Huculak, Raha Javanfar, Amy Nostbakken, Norah Sadava and Cheyenne Scott
Co-produced by Nightwood Theatre, Quote Unquote Collective, and Why Not Theatre
October 16-November 4, 2018 at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (12 Alexander Street)


They are the invisible, the vanishing and the disappeared. In an insurrectionary outburst of original music, words and movement, six characters in Now You See Her explore some of the diverse ways women fade from sight in our culture. They sing, dance and thrust themselves into the elements as they travel through the seasons of their lives. Their voices are defiant. Their question is simple: why and how do we allow our power to disappear without a fight?

Now You See Her follows Quote Unquote Collective’s acclaimed international hit Mouthpiece.

NNNN “Now You See Her radiates wit, urgency and theatricality” - NOW Magazine

Now You See Her embraces diversity in aesthetic, not just in its cast” - The Globe & Mail

“It would be difficult to overstate how brilliantly realized and intricately crafted Now You See Her is. Everything means something, even the most casual choices are revealed to contribute to the braid of the story.” - Mooney on Theatre

“Through text, movement, song and visual effects, the collective has crafted an extravaganza that is an assault on both the mind and the senses. [...] These women perform from the heart, and the action literally flies off the stage.” - Ludwig Van Toronto

“When we premiered Mouthpiece in 2015, a woman in her sixties came up to us after the show and said, ‘I don’t remember exactly when or how it happened, but at a certain age I realized I had become invisible.’” - Interview with Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken in She Does The City

Now You See Her is a Top Pick in The Toronto Star, Toronto Life and Post City Magazine
