“Veering from hilarious to harrowing, Cliff Cardinal’s examination of life and death on a First Nations reserve in northern Ontario creates an impression that will never fully leave you.” – Stephen Cooke, Herald Arts & Life
Huff is the wrenching, yet darkly comic tale of Wind and his brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse and struggling to cope with the death of their mother. Wind’s fantastic dream world bleeds into his haunting reality, as he’s preyed on by the Trickster through the hallways at school, the abandoned motel he loves more than home, and his own fragile psyche. With his signature biting humour and raw, vivid imagery, Cardinal expertly portrays over a dozen characters in his captivating solo performance.
Winner of 2012 Buddies in Bad Times Vanguard Award for Risk & Innovation.
Directed by Karin Randjola
Written and performed by Cliff Cardinal
