Leaky Heaven Circus presents To Wear a Heart So White – March 25 – 30, 2014
Mr. and Mrs. Macbeth: They fuck, they bleed, they die. Part pilgrimage, part Elizabethan Tragedy, part Church service. Join Leaky Heaven at the Russian Hall for a retelling of this story of conquest and migration. The death of kings, queens, and nature. The birth of real estate. To Wear a Heart So White is a spatial exploration of the Russian Hall mapped over by Shakespeare and the lost rituals of colonialism. A somber parade for the end times. Not so much a pushing of boundaries as a licking of them. To Wear a Heart So White runs March 25-30 at the Russian Hall.
Devised and created by the entire creative team, To Wear a Heart So White is directed by Steven Hill, and features a cast of Lois Anderson, Alex Ferguson and Sean Marshall Jr. Set design by Molly March and lighting and projection design by Parjad Sharifi. Composition and sound design by Nancy Tam. Costume Design by Flo Barrett
“The Leaky Heaven Circus wouldn’t be one of Vancouver’s most wildly innovative theatre companies if it didn’t test boundaries…”
Peter Birnie, Vancouver Sun
“If someone asked me to show them something that represented Vancouver as a unique, cultural centre, Leaky Heaven would be at the top of my list.”- Andrew Templeton, PLANK Magazine
Director Steven Hill is the Artistic Director of Leaky Heaven and has directed each of the company’s productions since the formation in 1999. During this time the company has received numerous awards including the Jessie’s Critics Choice for Innovation Award in both 2010 and 2011.With a team of long-term collaborators from a variety of disciplines he has devised both new works and adaptations of classics and follows an interest in devised theatre through rule-based playmaking techniques. He is also a writer and performer and a member of the faculty at Simon Fraser University.
Leaky Heaven is an interdisciplinary theatre company creating work that questions conventions of social relations, performance modalities, and event structures. They create hybridized work that examines and plays with the act of viewing. Leaky Heaven has developed a distinct method of creation and an identifiable aesthetic practice within the context of contemporary devised theatre. They see theatre as both a social act and a social art, and as such, experiment with unique perspectives for the audience, varying both the location and the perspective.
