Nov 24th – Dec 4th Theatre Yes presented ANXIETY pan-Canadian collaboration between seven small-scale, experimental theatre companies to create a found-space, immersive production, which explored the nature of our angst in the digital world. Theatre Yes approached six small-scale theatres, from across the country representing a variety of regions and artistic practices to participate. Each collaborating partner contributed a 10-minute, immersive performance-installation piece that examines anxiety, its mechanisms and how it shapes our lives. Thanks and ever thanks to our artistic collaborators Northern Light Theatre from (Edmonton), Theatre Skam (Victoria) and Outside the March (Toronto), LoHiFi Production (Halifax) and Curtain Razors (Regina) add Théâtre à corps perdus (Montreal).
