ONE SHEET: Tari Rickshaw: On Toronto’s garish main drag, and end-of-day commuter is trying unsuccessfully to hail a cab on a rainy night. An ornate rickshaw materializes out of the crush of traffic and an eager driver in non-traditional garb waits for the hesitant and confused suit to climb in. As the denizens of the neon metropolis flow by, our hero is transformed in gesture and movement, infected by the spirit of his transportation.
