What is The Preamble? This free pre-show program features Artistic Director Andy McKim in conversation with an artist from the play, or a local expert, to talk about the way in which that piece of theatre is contributing to a broader conversation. There are always snacks from a local restaurant to keep things casual.
Sunday February 24 (post-show)
After the performance you are welcome to stay and take part in our Q&A with some of the cast and/or creative team. Q&A’s are usually hosted by TPM’s Associate Artistic Producer Jivesh Parasram. Q&A’s are a chance for you to ask questions or just find out more about the play or the process of creating the work.
RELAXED PERFORMANCE- Saturday February 23 @ 2:00pm
These special performances are open to everyone, but the environment is specifically adapted to relax the tradition rules around silence, darkness, and stillness in the audience. They are designed to benefit individuals living with autism or sensory and communication disorders, parents with babes in arms, and anyone who would welcome a more relaxed environment at the theatre. Patrons are allowed to leave their seats and return to them in the middle of the show, the house lights are kept on at a dim setting, loud sound cues are toned down, special effects are explained before the show starts, and all cast and crew members are introduced at the top of the show.
Since 2014, Bad New Days has established a unique presence in Canadian theatre creating visually bold and physically innovative theatrical works that explore the complexity of the human condition through a volatile blend of lightness and gravity, drawing from the theatrical traditions of the past and re-imagining them in a contemporary aesthetic context.
Our aesthetic is self-consciously ‘theatrical’. We refer to it as Contemporary, Poetic Theatre of Gesture. It challenges theatrical naturalism and the traditional script-driven creation model, giving primacy to the body, to the image and to emotion in storytelling to transcend linguistic barriers and discover new contemporary theatrical forms evolved to respond directly to the times we live in.
