In a super-sized world, the greatest challenges are often the smallest ones: patience, tolerance, generosity … understanding. In our contemporary moment, these subtle triumphs are often major accomplishments, requiring superhuman strength and stamina.
tiny is an exploration of the everyday lives of superheroes. In an alternate version of the 20th Century, a group of extraordinary individuals tries to live ordinary lives—and alters the course of history in the process. Part theatre performance, part immersive installation, and part museum exhibition, tiny imagines a world where being different is cause for celebration and wonder, suspicion and anger, fear and denial, and, finally, hope and new beginnings.
A co-production with Zuppa Theatre Co. and Eastern Front Theatre, in association with Vertical City Performance and the Glenbow Museum.
