From Ragmop Theatres very own Nayana Fielkov comes Underbelly: A surrealist physical comedy in which monsters, dismemberment, shower opera, inconceivable truths and a hot date may be just the recipe needed to shed the past and let it run down the drain.

Join this multi-award winning physical comedian in her bathroom to untangle the age old question of perception and reality in love and life.

Nayana Fielkov is a critically acclaimed performing artist dedicated to the work of play. She is based on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Beginning with scripted plays and musicals over two decades ago, she evolved through the creation and wearing of masks, into the worlds of clown and devised theatre.

Nayana has performed at recognized festivals and venues across the nation with her genre-bending approach to theatre. She is co creator of multi-award winning RAGMOP Theatre, Habitats, and The Myrtle Sisters. She brings together the mediums of clown, dance, mask, and physical comedy. Along with her touring duo shows, she creates ensemble work, roving acts, hosting characters, variety acts, and is a founding member of Vancouver's cherished Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. She teaches contact dance and clown internationally, and has facilitated youth in theatre creation for many events including The International Children's Festival. Nayana is also a maker of puppets, clothing, costumes, and is a proud mother of a twelve year old boy.

“Nayana Fielkov is”… “immensely charming.” - Collin Thomas, reviewer for the Georgia Straight Vancouver.

“Nayana Fielkov show(s) off an impressive range of skills.” CBC
