Sound of the Beast

Location: Theatre Passe Muraille, 16 Ryerson Ave, Toronto, Ontario
Category: Theatre


In her solo performance Sound of the Beast, two-time Governor General’s Award Nominee Donna-Michelle St. Bernard (aka Belladonna the Blest) speaks truth to power using spoken word, storytelling, and hip-hop. Inspired by Tunisian emcee Weld-El 15 - who was jailed for his song Boulicia Kleb (The Police Are Dogs) – St. Bernard riffs on oppression, poverty, and systemic injustice. Sound of the Beast highlights St, Bernard’s quick wit and quicker rhymes in a multimedia performance that reflects on questions of identity, the decision to call out authority, and what happens when authority strikes back.

Listen to the Sound of the Beast track Who Dat here.
