“A telescopic journey through dust, human chemical relationships and geological time.”
Fight With a Stick Performance (formerly Leaky Heaven) presents their upcoming immersive show, Revolutions, May 19-29, 8PM (matinees on Sat & Sun at 2PM), co-directed by UBC Theatre PhD Candidate, Alex Lazaridis Ferguson and Steven Hill, Associate Professor in the Theatre Program at Simon Fraser University School for Contemporary Arts.
The company’s most recent work, Steppenwolf, at the PuSh festival last year was sold out and this show is shaping up to be as unique: a site-specific installation, meets immersive theatre performance, in the vastness of a 7,000 sq. ft. empty warehouse.
