Blood + Soil

Rouvan Silogix

Blood + Soil (Theatre ARTaud) is a fiercely political work that draws upon several cultural sources (Quebecois, Russian, Canadian) to bring together disparate worlds and illuminate a Marxist-inspired vision of Canadian society. Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s satirical novel Demons, as well as by our nation's inner demons, writer/director Rouvan Silogix chronicles the whirlwind cessation, actualization and degradation of a Quebec town reeling from dying industry and federal neglect.

Artistic director of Modern Times Stage Company, Rouvan Silogix is a mixed-race writer, director, actor, and classical pianist newish to Toronto via NYC. During his time in Toronto, he notably served as director of Professionally Ethnic (SummerWorks Performance Festival 2017), and as writer and director of Grab ‘Em by the Pussy; Or How To Stop Worrying & Love The Bomb (TPM Backspace). He was also producer, performer, and assistant director for the Private Life Cabaret (SummerWorks 2018), as created by Esther Jun and adapted by ted witzel and Susanna Fournier. Rouvan has previously worked as a professional in NYC and Karachi, Pakistan.

“No matter what happens we can never stop pushing for more equity, more quality art, more space for people outside the zeitgeist.”
