A ONE-WOMAN MADCAP COMEDY- 2010 Canadian Comedy Award Nominee “Best One Person Show”

Caught in an ever-shifting board game that wickedly transforms her into a different version of who she thinks she wants to be, Alice confronts her fears and desires in a desperate attempt to take control of her life. Fusing elements from nearly every comic tradition (sketch, stand-up, clown, satire and improv), CHAOTICA is a funny and touching play about remembering who we really are and what we really want. It has humour, heart, and tap-dancing too!

CHAOTICA premiered at the London Fringe, winning the Best-in-Venue Impressario Award and a nomination for Outstanding Touring Production. Christel taps her powerful creative arsenal to bring to life the comic nightmare of the chronically stressed-out.

One half of the Canadian Comedy Award nominated duo Burnt Marshmallows, Christel has joined forces with Dora nominated director Diana Kolpak, & Dora nominated composer James Fisher. For a sneak-peek video CLICK HERE.

Dutch Girl Productions of Toronto presents CHAOTICA — the story of Alice in a whole other wonderland. Caught in an ever-shifting board game that wickedly transforms her into a different version of who she thinks she wants to be, Alice confronts her fears and desires in a desperate attempt to take control of her life. Fusing elements from nearly every comic tradition (sketch, stand-up, clown, satire and improv) CHAOTICA is a funny and touching play about remembering who we really are and what we really want. It has humour, heart and tap-dancing too!

CHAOTICA premiered at the 2008 London Fringe, winning the Best-in-Venue Impresario Award and a nomination for the Brickenden Award for Outstanding Touring Production. “I began my solo Fringe in London with CHAOTICA, and the warm reception encouraged me to continue to develop this work. I think the comic nightmare lived by the chronically stressed-out is something everyone can identify with. It has now toured Ottawa, London,Saskatoon, Edmonton, played Toronto twice, and DivaFest in Indianapolis. It seems to be becoming my signature piece. It’s easy to keep fresh, with the improv elements forcing me to be quick on my feet, and every segment taps a different part of my creative arsenal. It’s a piece I’m always thrilled to perform.”
