MOTIONLIVE presents ANEEMAH'S SPOT
ANEEMAH'S SPOT is a stylistic mix of stealthy dialogue, rhyme and spoken word. The funeral of "G" brings Aneemah and Wan together to mourn and share their histories, as they are forced to let go of the past and choose how they will navigate life, either apart or together, from this moment on.
Written by Motion, and directed by Charles Officer, the award-winning production features an infectious all-Toronto sound-scape by DJ L'Oqenz that pulsates like the city that birthed it.
