ElastoCitizens at the Horseshoe

hands up if you wanna dance. With very special guests - and standby for some awesome news…

What a year!

Looking back on 2012 with a whole lot of pride. Grateful for all of the incredible people CR4B has been able to create shows with:

'Bliss' - Olivier Choiniere's masterful exploration of our gods and monsters finally gets a full production in Toronto at Buddies, 
'Monster' continues its residency at Motel and opens for Indian Handcrafts at the Horseshoe, 
The ElastoCitizens star in “Picture Day”, host the best party of the Toronto Film Festival, and release an incredible 3 song Ep,
CR4B picks up the controversial ‘the 20th of November’ and creates unforgettable exploration of school violence with actor and translator Gord Rand.

Here’s to 2012. Looking forward to 2013. More music, more theatre, and more incredible mash-ups of both coming your way. Peace!
