November 2019 Tiny A co-production with Zuppa Theatre
By Bruce Barton
An interdisciplinary theatrical extravaganza Created in partnership with Calgary’s Glenbow Museum, Alberta Theatre Projects, Sage Theatre and Vertical City Performance, Tiny is a theatre performance and a museum installation. Zuppa’s longtime friend and colleague Bruce Barton will write the script. In a museum or gallery, audiences freely explore an exhibit devoted to an alternate version of the recent past, during which some people developed ‘superpowers’ that were both celebrated and reviled. The exhibit commemorates this fraught time through the display of relics (e.g. early superhero costumes), explanatory plaques, historical texts, and personal testimonials (a collection of ‘documentary’ videos and sound recordings).
