This is a participatory performance where audience-participants will be asked to share a personal story. There is minimal sound and lighting. We welcome support animals or support people if audience-participants would like someone there with them.
Maybe loss doesn’t have to be a solitary reckoning. This live art performance for one audience member at a time invites participants to share a story of something they’ve lost. This lost thing can be a childhood possession, a feeling, a dream – anything really. The conversation will be led by the performers, which, as the story emerges, will reimagine the lost object using the collection of supplies they’ve gathered in the space. These objects will become part of an ever-evolving exhibition, reminding us of the power of sharing our losses.
UnSpun Theatre makes performances that imagine and rehearse new ways for us to be together. They explore our relationships: to each other, to the material things we hold dear, to our memories and to our futures. Since 2004, they have been making performative and installative projects. UnSpun Theatre is led by Chris Hanratty and Shira Leuchter and is based out of Toronto/Tkaronto.
