Concept by Kim Collier with Ariel Martz-Oberlander
Returning to our site specific and eclectic performance roots, Kim’s newest work is part social experiment, part puppet show, part audience interaction, combined together to make a Tiny Party. This two week workshop process will lead to a series of experimental presentations that will bring together audiences from across Vancouver, challenging them to bridge the gap between dialogue and real conversation, perhaps even get to know one another.
This design-based work for small audiences will tackle what it is to engage in conversation when you struggle socially. Tiny Party will be a processional piece with exquisite small installations that audience members will inhabit with tiny puppet avatars. It will provide scripted conversation starters to navigate past barriers to connection but also to source humour, political challenge and brave and bold remarks!
