Fault Line Theatre

Fault Line Theatre was formed in 2005 by Melissa D’Agostino to create original works through collaborative exploration.  In collaboration with Adam Lazarus Fault Line Theatre has embarked on a three year journey with The Guadalupe Project.  Our goal is to use theatre to foster dialogue between audience and performer about attitudes towards immigration, race, gender, acceptance, social responsibility and personal fulfillment.


Development from The Guadalupe Project to Lupe:Undone:

Three years ago, we at Fault Line Theatre set out to discover the breadth of a dynamic and exciting character named Lupe Dominguez.  Playing clubs and cabarets throughout Toronto, Lupe quickly became one of the city’s hottest and most sought after acts and developed a devoted cult following. 

The ongoing development was titled The Guadalupe Project: part performance, part installation, and part community event.

Fault Line Theatre has received funding through the Ontario Arts Council Theatre Creators’ Reserve for two consecutive years.  The Guadalupe Project was recommended for funding by The Theatre Centre and Cahoots Theatre Project which helped fund live installation performances at the following venues:

Dufferin Grove Park
The Dufferin Mall
Todmorden Mills
(as part of Dark, curated by Marjorie Chan and the City of Toronto)
Theatre Passe Muraille
(Speed dating event for Summer Works)
The Factory Theatre greenroom
(Inaugural Lab Cab festival in 2006)

Lupe has even made her way to City Hall to interview Mayor David Miller as part of an online Web series The Lupe Show!

Now Lupe is back for her own full length, interactive, one-woman blow-out show in the alleyway of Honest Ed’s!
