In Walk The Talk, an eccentric guide will walk you through several living and one dying mini-exhibition of various multi-disciplinary artistes from Asia, New York, and yes, even our own ‘hoods.
Walk The Talk
Info Centre, Granville Island
1. Tell us about your show.
It’s about art coming from the heart, two hearts, really. The show brings together people from all walks of life through words, music, and dance. Audience will interact with the artists through their art and then together, the audience and artist will co-create a unique and personalized work. The audience’s connection with the artist shapes the experience and outcome of each show.
2. Why should someone come see your show?
To be curious together! We have invited artists from Vancouver and around the world to open their hearts and we invite the audience to do the same. Who knows what will happen! There is a sense of vulnerability that comes with opening up to another human being and not really knowing what will come of it until you go through it together. Also, the show is free admission and to be paid forward by Acts of Random Care, our company’s acronym. This is because we truly believe that human connection is priceless. It’s our gift to Vancouver.
3. If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Pokemons because we also want to get people out and get people connecting with people.
4. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?
Leslie Stark’s Peripeteia with the Elegant Ladies Collective is definitely worth seeing. In many ways, Leslie’s previous works, together with New York’s ‘Sleep No More’ and ‘Then She Fell’ have been our teachers and impetus to try our hand at creating our humble and simple immersive theatre experience.
The 2016 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 8-18 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
