Other Freds

Winner: Jessie Richardson Award for Significant Artistic Achievement - Expanding the Scope of Site-Specific Theatre in Vancouver

Possibly the largest and most audacious site-specific theatre show Vancouver has ever seen. Other Freds is the story of a lonely fella named Fred and all of the Other Freds existing in nearby parallel worlds. It is about chance, fate and the possibilities that await us and our city in parallel worlds.

The cast included a core of professional actors and musicians and 200+ community members involved in the show, plus two dozen boats, birds and bicycles.

Other Freds played to a combined audience of 2500 Vancouverites and visitors, over its 12-performance run.

The Only Animal creates cultivates and inspires theatre work that arises from a deep engagement with place.
