Announcing the 2018 rEvolver Festival Mainstage!
Two actors perform Shakespeare’s Macbeth without words. A local artist steps into the radical headspace of a suicide bomber. A real-life scientist takes you through the history of women being f&*$ed over for centuries. Two people find love.
Upintheair Theatre is thrilled to be back at The Cultch for the 6th annual rEvolver Theatre Festival. rEvolver runs from May 23th – June 3rd, presenting new work by Vancouver and Canada’s most exciting up and coming performers and theatre creators. Past rEvolver Festivals have included world premieres of hit shows such as Jordan Hall’s ‘Kayak’, Delinquent Theatre’s ‘Stationary: A Recession-Era Musical” (which featured as part of The Cultch’s 2015/16 season) and Mind of a Snail’s gorgeous shadow puppetry in ‘Caws and Effect’.
This year’s programming represents the rich diversity of voices, aesthetics, and styles among Vancouver and Canadian emerging professional theatre makers. The programmed artists are tackling big issues – inequality, climate change, sexual abuse and consent, violence, the impacts of colonialism. They are doing so in unexpected ways, using wit and humour, intelligence, music and the power of bodies in motion to look for ways to move out and forward, and to bring light into the darkness. Join us in seeing all that this incredible community of artists has to offer.
