The Forest For The Trees
August 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Forest for the Trees is a physical theatre/dance hybrid which explores the shadows. When a woman escapes from hiding, an unknown world awaits her and those she left behind. What was she hiding from, and what will she discover outside? Is there something out there that threatens these women, or is the supposed threat just an image of her imagination? An experiment in storytelling through movement without words, combined with a spine-chilling soundscape and eerie, mysterious lighting will transport the audience to a magical new world.

The outdoors is an exciting and unpredictable environment for GTA audiences to experience something new, and see their neighbourhood in a new light. Forest for the Trees is an accessible experience for those who are new to physical theatre, and works to intrigue and inspire, but also show each our audience a fun evening of physical theatre entertainment.
