‘Denise Clarke doesn’t really tell you a story. Rather, she invites you to join her in living one… a Canadian treasure’ – Calgary Herald

‘there is no doubt in her ability to communicate joy, pain and self-deprecating humour… Clarke is a fantastic storyteller” – Chronicle Herald (Halifax)

A comedy of tragic proportions by One Yellow Rabbit’s Denise Clarke, who dances her way through this solo performance of tender stories and beautiful music. Loss and cheerful discoveries permeate this blend of monologue and movement, which presents a mosaic of highly personal moments told in Clarke’s signature style. wag is a balm for your heart, a kick in the pants, and essential viewing from this seminal artist.

Denise was last at the Firehall with her solo show A Fabulous Disaster, which was so popular here, it sold out two performance runs!

wag is created and performed by Denise Clarke. A Firehall Arts Centre presentation.
