WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY CARMEN AGUIRRE
DIRECTED BY BRIAN QUIRT
A NIGHTSWIMMING PRODUCTION
January 15, 2013 - February 03, 2013
Carmen Aguirre returns to GCTC with the full production of her smash hit from the 2012 undercurrents festival. Blue Box investigates Carmen Aguirre’s remarkable life as an underground revolutionary in Chile. It’s a story of terror, romance, and abandon that takes us from the dangerous mountain passes of Chile to the perilous roller coasters of Hollywood; from an ardent love affair with a TV star, to a passionate love for a revolution that strove to change an entire nation. Carmen’s memoir, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, won the 2012 CBC Canada Reads competition.
"Aguirre has afforded us with an adventure. It would be unwise to pass it up." - Apartment 613
"She's able to easily enthrall you and draw you into her saucy sexy-time story for the full eighty-minute-run-time of the show." - Production Ottawa
