Care To Dance? With the Cast of The Dance-Off of Conscious Uncoupling!

With this much talent, you know this show will be great! Rehearsals have begun already for FemFest. We have met a few times this week with the fresh cast for Frances Koncan’s The Dance-Off of Conscious Uncoupling. One of the best parts of staging a play set at a High School Prom is that we get to work with some very talented young actors this year, as well as some old friends. This week, we want to introduce you to the Dance-Off cast members but sharing a couple of quirky questions and answers. And each of these actors are involved in the Fringe this week, so don’t miss your chance to see them in action! Montana Headshot

Montana Lehmann is currently studying theatre and film and the University of Winnipeg. She has been involved in many productions such as Richard the 2nd workshop (Zone 41), A Christmas Story (RMTC), Sunday in the Park with George (Sondheim fest). She is currently the stage manager for Twelfth Night at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Montana is very excited to be a part of such a great play in FemFest.

1. What would you like to roar about? I’d like to give a big roar to this city! Lots of people love to complain about Winnipeg and how it’s cold and boring but there are so many fun things to do and see here. I am really quite proud to call Winnipeg my home.

2. If you could be an animal, what animal would you choose? Jellyfish, because they are so beautiful and peaceful looking, unless you touch them of course then they aren’t so pretty. They are also an animal that we don’t know very much about, how can they navigate with no eyes? Why don’t they have a brain? It’s a mystery. Or a hedgehog because they are adorable.

3. If you weren’t working in theatre, what would you love to do? No theatre?? I honestly have no idea what I would do with my life if I wasn’t working in theatre.

Solmund HeadshotSolmund MacPherson is pleased to be making his Sarasvàti debut in this new play by Frances Koncan. He is currently appearing as Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night with the Knavish Hedgehogs at the Winnipeg Fringe. He is currently working on a full length film entitled The Idol as the Co-Director and Director of Photography. He has been acting from a young age, first appearing onstage as Skunk in Candy from a Baby in 2005. His interests include writing, film making, and playing jazz percussion.

1. If you weren’t working in theatre, what would you love to do? Work as a writer/director for film or a photojournalist.

2. If you could be an animal, what animal would you choose? Something that can fly (except bats, I want to be able to appreciate the view)

3. What would you like to roar about? I prefer to purr.

Lyle Morris Headshot2014 (2)

Lyle Morris is a local actor and is *pumped* to be involved with Sarasvàti again. You may remember him as the hapless brother in last season’s Launched or in the spring as the Lone Ranger as part of the So You Think You Can Act fundraiser. You may have seen him in the short film Period Piece (at the Gimli Film Festival) or you may see him in the soon to be released features Foot of the Bridge (in 3-D) and Intersection. Currently he is on stage at the Winnipeg Fringe in For.

1) What is your main occupation, currently? Teaching Math and physics

2) What would you like to roar about? Entitlement. People are so self-centered. Drives me Crazy!

3) In a movie about your life, who would play you? I’ve heard I resemble Michael C. Hall, and lately, Michael Fassbender.

Tickets are available for the world premiere production of The Dance-Off of Conscious Uncoupling Saturday, September 17 at 7pm; Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 4pm.
