def: roadkill = a one-night stand or a funny new way to view the hilarious “first meeting”. In the tv business it’s also the term for a failed pitch.
ROAD KILL is a reality-based comedy where two forty-something women, Terry and Elspeth, dream up imaginary and ridiculous projects in their never-ending quest to snag younger men. The three skits shown here include: My Imaginary Husband (where Terry pretends to have gotten married in Mexico); Tom’s Pole (where the two visit a pole company to get a flag pole made for their drinking flag); and The Dog House (where Terry and Elspeth go to Dick’s Lumber to get some young guys to build them a dog house).
A Special International Women’s Day Presentation: 2 Screenings and Cougar Party with Elspeth Sage and Terry Ewasiuk. Join Elspeth, Terry and the rest of the Stridettes in their natural habitat for a fascinating look into the exploits of these two shameless cougars in action.
ELSPETH SAGE has been working as an independent curator of contemporary art since 1985, presenting Canadian artists to an international audience. She has tended to focus on challenging large-scale projects that involve video & photo installations as well as performance. She is also co-founder of an Internet dating company – www.cougardate.com. Established in 1997 and with thousands of members worldwide, cougardate is described as a ‘ fun new approach to dating where ‘women are cougars and men are willing prey’.She spends as much time as possible with her beloved Bull Terrier, Janet.
/TERRY EWASIUK is a visual artist and photographer who has been exhibiting in Canada and internationally since 1979. In December 2003 she had a solo exhibition of her latest photoworks entitled “So Lower Mainland” that received critical acclaim.
