“Mouthpiece is a tapestry of music, dance and the spoken word… it holds you transfixed until the very end.”
— Scene Changes
NIGHTWOOD THEATRE + QUOTE UNQUOTE THEATRE
A harrowing, humorous, and heart-wrenching journey into the female psyche.
In the wake of her mother’s death, Mouthpiece follows one woman, for one day, as she tries to find her voice. Interweaving a cappella harmonies, dissonance, text and physicality, two performers express the inner conflict that exists within a modern woman’s head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, the progress and the regression.
Winner of 2 Dora Awards: outstanding performance & outstanding sound design.
Mouthpiece plays alongside Quiver as part of an electric double bill that unleashes and explodes the possibilities of the female voice through innovative use of music and sound. Book tickets for both shows and save.

As Canada’s foremost feminist theatre, Nightwood provides an essential home for the creation of extraordinary theatre by women. Founded in 1979, Nightwood Theatre has created and produced award-winning plays, which have won Dora Mavor Moore, Chalmers, Trillium and Governor General’s Awards. The company is led by Artistic Director Kelly Thornton and Managing Director Beth Brown, who have received public acclaim in artistic excellence, advocacy, and their successful training and development of emerging female talent.
Buddies’ audiences will remember Nightwood from their epic production of Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad in 2012 and 2013. Our two companies have enjoyed a decades-long relationship, dating all the way back to the 1980 Rhubarb Festival and including such hits as Diane Flacks’ Bear with Me and Maja Ardal’s HER2.
Quote Unquote Collective is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary performance company that aims to work outside the boundaries of tradition and expectation. Engaging with urgent social and political themes, co-founders Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava, who both have a strong background in physical theatre and music, have joined forces to produce work in a variety of genres and disciplines as a means to make new, experimental, and provocative performance work that ignites conversation within the community and the world at large.
