'Arti-Chaut', a one-woman multidisciplinary show created and performed by Sarah Peterson, capturing what humour can be derived from the most hopeless situations.This piece follows a young woman rushing home from her dreary job to welcome a gentleman over for dinner. As she flips, fumbles, rushes and stumbles through these preparations, we see her tenacity and efforts to make something go right when everything seems to work against her. Appreciating the work some women put into anticipated evenings, ‘Arti-Chaut’ makes it clear that we are often our own worst enemies, and we can all benefit from sitting back and allowing ourselves to have a laugh at our expense once in a while.
Combining her training in circus arts, corporal mime, acting, clown and object manipulation, Sarah created her one-woman show and premiered her work at the Montreal Fringe in 2013.
She has since been invited to present Arti-Chaut at Circus Fest in Vancouver in 2014, and will be performing at the Toronto Festival of Clowns followed by a limited run off-off Broadway at the Brick Theater in New York as a part of their inaugural F*ckfest.
