OpenRoad hosts La Marea at PuSh Festival

OpenRoad is pleased to sponsor and host Vancouver’s dynamic theatre company Boca del Lupo in their production of La Marea for the 2011 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.

La Marea by Mariano Pensotti

From the PuSh Festival website:

A man has just had a motorbike accident… An insomniac tries to get to sleep… A couple has their first kiss… A man stands on a balcony escaping the party that rages on behind him…

When strangers walk past you on the street, do you ever start imagining what they are thinking? Where they come from? Or what they are doing there at the very moment you glance upon them?

At night and in real time, moving from the pavement to illuminated windows, from balconies to café terraces, La Marea presents nine different stories—intimate snapshots that bring the zero hundred block of Water Street in historic Gastown to life for the opening of the 2011 PuSh Festival. These fictional scenes are repeated over the course of the evening in shop windows and on street corners, where audience members can observe the characters’ inner thoughts through projected subtitles.

One scene of La Marea will be performed from the new OpenRoad offices at 12 Water St, The Garage building. We’re proud to support this local, innovative production and hope you’ll join Boca del Lupo to witness and participate in their production from January 18 to January 22, 2011 on Water St in Gastown.
