Tomato Blues
(performance in English)

Moi, a curious quirky character,

come together to portray
the vicious circles in the life

Acknowledgements and special thanks:
In 2003, at its inception, Fila 13 received an important donation, giving the company wings for a smooth first flight. We will be forever grateful to these donors who wish to remain anonymous (we like to think of them as the "Dream Factory"). Their spontaneous generosity was so ever vital to Fila 13!

We salute Hugo Valencia, thanking him for his solidarity and support as a member of our Board of Directors since the company's inception, thank you for these past 20 years!

Many thanks to Pablo Keselman for his support, expressed in countless ways, and to Laurent Boutéraon for his photographic collaboration to several projects of Lina Cruz/Fila 13.

We thank our audiences, friends, Le Cercle d'amis de Fila 13, colleagues and presenters who have accompanied us along the years.

A very special thank you to Francine Bernier and Agora de la danse who have presented and supported our work since Fila 13's beginnings, trusting the company's projects, always warmly welcoming us and giving us absolute artistic freedom: an immeasurable support!

We also thank the support, generosity, enthusiasm and kindness of Luce Botella, Luk Côté, Monique Garneau, Joanne Germain, Mylène Robillard, Claude Morissette, Caroline Richard and the network of Montreal's Maisons de la culture as well as the very essential Dena Davida and Tangente. Thanks to them, Lina Cruz's work has been able to reach a great diversity of audiences since even before the company's existence.

Thank you to Lydia Wagerer, Elinor Fueter, Robert Langevin, Ariel Ifergan, Frédéric Salter as well as MainLine Theatre and its team.

We acknowledge and salute the various programs of the Canada Council for the Arts, Le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Le Conseil des arts de Montréal which make possible the blossoming of a highly inspiring and prolific artistic milieu.
Merci, thank you, gracias!
