Big Shows, Small Shows

You and the Moon

  • a persona smilling into the camera

You and the Moon was a careful examination of greatest love story you’ve ever had, but never knew. A microscope that looks back at you, a storybook that draws itself, a miniature you that becomes a fulsome adventurer. An interactive show for one-person at a time, specifically you. You and the Moon used interactive video, animated illustration, wild shifts of scale, and one very surprising performer to tell a love story for an audience of one.

HIVE 2 took over 2 warehouse spaces at the Digital Media Centre for a 9-day marathon of perspective-rocking, intimate, outrageous, and eclectic performances by 11 independent B.C. theatre companies. Building on the success of the original HIVE, the member companies of Progress Lab were commissioned by the Magnetic North Theatre Festival. Veda Hille curated 9 bands for the after-show party each night, and Glenn Alteen of Grunt Gallery brought some seriously live artists to the cabaret space. You and the Moon was remounted as part of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Cultural Olympiad at Vancouver East Cultural Centre (VECC).
