Stray [2014]

Stray  is a rock-based performance adaptation of Tanya Marquardt’s memoir, co-created with Tim Carlson and director Mallory Catlett.

Vancouver multi-disciplinary performer Tanya Marquardt moved to New York City three years ago to be alone and write Stray, her memoir about her years as a teen runaway. Stray (formerly titled Duets for One) adapts scenes from her memoir into a cabaret-style montage-alogue, integrating the influence of New York underground culture with music.

Stray features performer Tanya Marquardt, musician and Conspiracy artistic producer Tim Carlson, and musicians Jon Wood (guitar/bass) and Ed Goodine (drums).

Stray premiered as Duets for One at Club PuSh 2014. Theatre Conspiracy presented new scenes from Stray at Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX) in New York in Oct and Nov, 2014, part of CANADIANS ARE MEAN, curated by MELANIE JONES (2013/15 BAX Artist In Residence).
