Spindle Collective and Riot King present a ‘prologue' to our play-in-development, SAMCA, written by Natalia Bushnik and Kathleen Welch. Filmed remotely in both Toronto and Ireland, we explore how our titular character, Samca, came to be the ‘monster’ found in Romanian mythology. Directed by Brendan Kinnon. Featuring performances by Natalia Bushnik (‘Samca’, voiceover), Madeline Kennedy (‘Young Woman’), Kathleen Welch (‘Samca’). Music composed and performed by Kathleen Welch. Sound design and editing by Jonathan Brown. Video editing by Natalia Bushnik. A huge thank you to the SpringWorks team for providing a platform to experiment with new methods of storytelling.
