Graphic with a black background. White text at the top says "Joy Provision", the name of the troupe. Below there is a sonic graphing of the death of a star with the face of a man to the left, and a woman to the left. They both are holding their index and middle finger in a peace sign reversed, under their mouths. A black peace sign is overtopping the graph in the centre of the page.

Creative Bio:
We’re Joy Provision, and we gonna eat some noodles! 2020 was weird, and 2021 is no less strange, but hey, if you’re reading this, then congrats! You are surviving a global pandemic!!! Keep it up, cuz you look good doing it ;)

Made up of members Rena Taylor (Rena Warrior Princess, OFF-JFL) and Ethan Resendes (Rena Warrior Princess, Second City), Joy Provision is gonna smack you upside the head with some radical acceptance, all while caressing your funny bone with whispers of sweet nonsense. Meryl Streep did once say “Laughter is the best medicine” (we think), but honestly, it’s survival. Now sit back and let us take care of you. We’ll order take out and guide you on your path to enlightenment!!! Why? Because honestly, we’re tired of complaining.

So here, we made this for you. We really tried and we hope our creative outlet sparks joy. This sounds like we’re trying to sell you candles, but WHAT IF this joy spark sets you aflame and makes the waxy puddle of your life even more meaningful, fun, and fragrant! If not, just re-gift to someone. We don’t mind!
Kisses and toodles.
Joy Provision
