ABOUT THE SHOW
In Sound of the Beast, Toronto emcee Belladonna the Blest (Dora Award-winning playwright Donna-Michelle St. Bernard) shares stories of coming up in Toronto’s hip-hop scene, the intersections between conscious rap and political activism, and the sacrifices we make for the things we believe in. Part concert/part theatre the show blends the personal and the political, with a bold and brutally honest take about policing in Black communities.
Sound of the Beast is a part of the 54ology: Donna-Michelle’s commitment to create one performance work drawn from each country in Africa.
“Go experience this intense, memorable constellation of storytelling — you’ll be the better and the wiser for it.”
