hugs, the smell of old books, a hairdresser who listens to what you want
The colour yellow, roller coasters, ice cream — as a mother battles chronic depression, a child creates a list of every brilliant thing they can think of, to remind them what makes life worth living. As the child grows, so does the list. Looking back on a life of ups and downs, the man takes the audience on an inspiring journey that celebrates finding joy in the mundane and being grateful for the simple pleasures hiding all around us. At once intimate and interactive, this touching, funny, and uplifting performance chronicles life’s small joys and reveals the lengths to which we will go for those we love.
|Navigating the theatre world during a global pandemic is full of ups and downs. While they may not have announced it previously, their collaboration with Hudson Village Theatre to do Every Brilliant Thing has been in the works since the early fall. Like you, they’ve been following the news closely to see when the Segal Centre would be able to put the show on safely for their patrons. The Segal Centre believes it has a responsibility to their artists, their employees, their funders, and their public to be ready to return to its practice and to sharing exquisite theatre – with new health and safety guidelines in place – as soon as they are allowed to, whether it be this February, later this spring, or several months from now.|

As the Segal Centre waits to safely invite artists and patrons back inside their venue, this is an opportunity to celebrate the beauty of the Segal Centre’s façade as a space to elevate BIPOC voices through visual art. The light installation, which will be displayed in loops, will be visible to passersby on the front of the Segal Centre (5170 chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine) every day starting at 5:30 p.m.
