Festival favourite Paul-André Fortier (Montreal) returns to the CDF with Misfit Blues, a new duet created with the luminous Robin Poitras (Regina). Taking the audience on a theatrical journey from laughter to tears, these seminal performers explore the tragic, tender, challenging world of the modern couple in a bittersweet caricature of the grand human comedy.

“[Poitras] is one of Canada’s greatest dancers and [Fortier] is one of the country’s best choreographers, their teaming up results in pure gold.”
– Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail

Cast: Paul-André Fortier, Robin Poitras
