Due to unforeseen circumstances, Lookup Theatre has made the difficult decision to postpone their presentation of Twist of Fate from May 3-5, 2024 to November 22-24, 2024. Ticket holders will be contacted by Harbourfront Centre Box Office team via email to provide further details.

Twist of Fate masterfully unfolds Angola Murdoch’s profound narrative, chronicling her diagnosis, surgery, and triumphant recovery from scoliosis, all while living with a remarkable 10-inch metal spine. It is a universally resonant tale of defying adversity to chase one’s dreams. With over two decades of experience as a professional international circus performer, Angola Murdoch’s story is a testament to the power of the human spirit. 

Adding an exquisite layer of musical depth to the performance is the award-winning composer, writer, and performer Matthew Reid, whose live underscoring complements the emotional journey of Twist of Fate. Matthew Reid’s illustrious career includes having written and performed for both The Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Second City Toronto.

This project combines contemporary circus, theatre, dance, music, projection mapping, and memoir. Together, Angola Murdoch and Matthew Reid have crafted a mesmerizing show that promises entertainment for the entire family.
