Would you rather live without sight or touch, hearing or taste? Which of our senses is the most important? The complex interaction between our inner selves and our perceptions of the outer world is the imaginative territory of Ghost River Theatre’s Six Senses Performance Series. The first installment is a new adaptation of sci-fi giant Ray Bradbury’s short story Tomorrow’s Child as a one-of-kind audio-only theatre experience presented to a blindfolded audience.  This ain't no radio play –the quirks of 50s sci-fi are reimagined for a highly immersive sonic environment, created with the latest in sound technology provided by Calgary audio monsters PK Sound. Long-time Ghost River Theatre collaborator Matt Waddell and Ghost River co-Artistic Directors Eric Rose and David van Belle send you on an unforgettable sonic journey complete with original music by Sara Albu and Jesse Osborne-Lanthier (Noir) that has to be heard to be believed. 

 

Presented in partnership with the University of Calgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts and Theatre Lab Performance Institute.
