AN UNFORGETTABLE AUDIO EXPERIENCE CREATED FOR A BLINDFOLDED AUDIENCE
This new adaptation of sci-fi giant Ray Bradbury’s short story Tomorrow’s Child is a one-of-a-kind, audio-only theatre experience presented to a blindfolded audience. The quirks of ‘50s sci-fi are reimagined for a highly immersive sonic environment, created with the latest in sound technology.
A devised collaboration between Ghost River Theatre and the Radical Young Artists of Western Canada High School.
Exploding into blood, glitter, and the feeling that I will never be this alive or this numb again. My brain mixed with a cocktail of hormones so intense it feels like the world is a cherry bomb some kid threw into the boy’s bathroom. I will fall in love and there will be a mushroom cloud in my heart that leaves a wasteland of my childhood.
Created by Ghost River Theatre and the School of Creative and Performing Arts, WINDOW is a prismatic odyssey through a contentious past, possible presents, and imagined futures. From JFK to Y2K, Care Bears to the Matrix, WINDOW plunges audiences down a crazed rabbit hole, escape from which is entirely uncertain….
In 1969 British entrepreneur and sailor Donald Crowhurst appeared poised to win the prestigious Golden Globe Race, a solo, non-stop round the world sailing competition. As he was poised to win on the final leg, however, organizers suddenly lost all contact with him. His boat was found adrift in the mid-Atlantic two weeks later in sound condition, but with no sign of Crowhurst. Then they read his unsettling logs and an entirely new story emerged...
A multimedia meditation on ambition and the artistry of deception.
Youth, violence, sexuality, family, and growing up; a visceral retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale set against a modern landscape.Three years in the making: the ensemble of Major Matt Mason Collective members led by Eric Rose of Ghost River Theatre will re-form to present this highly theatrical devised creation. Shadowing, distorting, shattering, and reconstructing the fairy tale form we are asking the questions: Why has this story pervaded across countless cultures and generations? And in an age of rapidly redefined ideas and awareness surrounding sexuality and gender, what does it mean to tell this story today?
