It’s a Theatre Sheridan Pippin reunion on Tits and Teeth this week! First up, we speak with Greg Carruthers from EveryBODY on Stage. Next, we sit down with performer, director and producer, Saccha Dennis.
Saccha Dennis, aka Saccha Fierce, is an actor, director, and creator of Musicals Re:Imagined, the production company dedicated to reimagining traditional musical theatre by flipping the script and not apologizing for it. Saccha is part of the original Canadian company of Come From Away, she was on the 1st National Tour of We Will Rock You, and most recently she directed a reimagined production of Pippin at Theatre Sheridan.
Each week our ‘Whatcha Doin?!’ segment highlights artist run small businesses. Our feature for this week’s episode is Greg Carruthers, choreographer and creator of EveryBODY on Stage, a group of Canadian artists dismantling fat-phobia one song, story, and jiggle at a time. Their mission is to break down stigma and fat-phobia in the arts and reduce the harm done by body dysmorphia and the long-term health of artists and to encourage the positive representation of all body-types on stage. Greg worked alongside Saccha Dennis as the choreographer for her reimagined Pippin at Theatre Sheridan.
So come hang with us, and get your weekly fix of musical theatre banter with Jen and Ky
