Red Glimmer

Tell us about Red Glimmer.

In Red Glimmer a woman involuntarily takes an internal trip after succumbing to a deep depression. A scientist is hired to navigate her neurological pathways, performing an experimental procedure – the emotional facelift – to eradicate her ability to re-experience emotional pain. Will the woman be strong enough to stay in the sting? A creepy little girl is heard running by! What happens next?

Describe your show in three words.

Eerie. Mindful. Science.

Why should someone come to see your show?

  • Because … science!
  • Red Glimmer offers a unique theatre experience through visceral narrative soundscapes. Instead of seeing pivotal defining moments in the story Red Glimmer wants you to hear it.
  • Red Glimmer plays with movement choreographed to spoken word poetry.
  • Red Glimmer tackles mental health through a weird, sci-fi, funny, visually tantalizing, melodically beautiful, eerie, heart-rendering interdimensional science experiment!
  • The set is made out of faux ostrich feathers.
  • Come to see the masks. Red Glimmer questions, “How many Masks does a person wear a day, a year, a lifetime?”

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Batman is a good man that has mental garbage. Batman experienced unspeakable trauma as a child and it forever altered his life. Red Glimmer unpacks the unspeakable trauma and puts a magnifying glass to the mental garbage, hunting down the inner demons and demolishing what they’ve been feeding on in the dead of night.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
