Toronto Fringe 2012: pomme is french for apple July 6-14


From a media release:

POMME COMES TO THE FRINGE: GET A LIKKLE TASTE
pomme is french for apple
July 6-14, 2012 at the Toronto Fringe Festival


Toronto.  - pomme is french for apple, a new play written, produced and performed by Liza Paul and Bahia Watson, explores the lives of modern women and their most intimate, embarrassing and empowering moments. Following a sold-out series at Cinecycle last year and after closing to a standing-room-only crowd at the Tranzac in early 2012, pomme is french for apple returns to the stage at Theatre Passe Muraille as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival July 6-14, 2012.

Distinctly West Indian, pomme is composed of outrageous vignettes about dating, sex, and society. Pum (patois for a woman's private parts – sounds like...) gets speaking roles, too. Liza Paul (anitafrika! dub theatre, b current, Soulpepper Theatre Company) and Bahia Watson (anitafrika! dub theatre, Soulpepper Theatre Company, Nightwood Theatre) create a series of charmingly outlandish characters in settings as diverse as the islands, downtown Toronto, southeast London, and the too-tight crotch of the pants. pomme is french for apple is a fresh, funny and irreverent look at womanhood in all its glory: its perils, its pleasures and all kinda madness in between.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
