The Tempest Project at the Vancouver Playhouse

  • Dates: July 17-22, 2024 with evening and matinée shows
  • Location: Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
  • Tickets: From $30, available online now

Small groups of audiences will be led on various paths through the theatre. As they travel, they’ll be greeted with live performances, recordings from hidden speakers, projections, lighting, audio-and-optical illusions, and more. “The ultimate aim is to pull audiences into a ‘strange new world’ and challenge their very definition of what a music performance can be,” says Artistic Director David Pay.

Inspired by the themes that have made Shakespeare’s Tempest such an endearing work, the world premiere experience will use music to access motifs of revenge and forgiveness, freedom, betrayal, and redemption. The diverse ensemble of musicians and creators developing the project bring their insights as an intercultural collective to these explorations, imbuing the project’s layers of meaning with their own lived experiences.
