CANADA OR CAN'T
Written and Directed by Deanne Taylor
Billed as a ‘VideoCabaret News Special’ presented by Factory Theatre in October 1995, Canada Or Can’t was a political cabaret, that featured the work of more than forty artists (performers, musicians, designers, videographers).
Canada or Can't zoomed in for a big close-up on the Crabby Country and the Noisy Province, on the eve of the ’95 Quebec Referendum, and featured the Debate the networks couldn't get, avec Messrs. Parizeau, Bouchard, Chretien, Johnson, Manning, Levesque and Trudeau.
Canada or Can't was hot-wired with live TV cameras and monitors, simulating a television broadcast, with a studio audience.
