Prismatic Festival, Theatre

Landline: Dartmouth to Ottawa

When: Aug. 21-22, 7-10 p.m. and Aug. 23-24, 4-7 p.m. 2014

An out-of-the-box audio play and collaboration between Adrienne Wong (Neworld Theatre, Vancouver BC) and Dustin Harvey (Secret Theatre, Halifax NS) about the collapse of distances that pairs you with another audience member a thousand kilometers away. They describe the experience: "With departures every fifteen minutes from home base in Alderney Landing, an audio guide prompts you to drift through the city streets and to stop at a series of locations linked to your memories and imagination. You conjure another city thousands of miles away, and there find your real-life scene partner. The story invites you to begin a short conversation by text message on topics like memories, absent loved ones, and massive change. At the end of the walk, you are drawn back to Alderney Landing where you will find your scene partner in Ottawa, Ontario, this time on live video. Now face to face, how much will you reveal, and how much further will the conversation go?"

Price: $12
