Easter Island presented by Verb Theatre

March 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm MDT

Verb Theatre’s Artistic Director, Jamie Dunsdon, commissioned a new work from award-winning playwright David van Belle (The Highest Step in the World, The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst, Liberation Days) in 2016. David wanted to create a solo tour-de-force for a female performer that examines the all-consuming nature of art, the environmental crisis we’re facing, and the intimacy of telling stories.  These seemingly disparate ideas are woven together for an intense evening of immersive story-telling.

Three stories of the past, the present, and the future are braided together into a funny, visually spectacular, and moving experiential performance that explores who we choose to be and what we choose to leave behind. A show that traces the demise and possible salvation of three characters: the tattooist, the prospector, and the artist. Immersive, funny, and important new theatre at its best.

This world premiere production is directed by Jamie Dunsdon and stars Natalie Inga Gauthier.  Easter Island previews on March 22nd, opens on March 23rd, and runs until March 31st, 2018 at Arts Commons, Motel Theatre. Tickets and more information can be found at verbtheatre.com
