After a brief hiatus we are thrilled to announce our 2016/2017 season. We’re back, Vancouver, and better than ever.
Reality Curve was formed as an Equity Co-op to stage productions like Asymmetry, but veteran director/casting director Stuart Aikins, actor and producer Paul Piaskowski, and communications specialist Rebecca McNeil officially formed the company and developed meaningful partnerships to bring more and consistent arts programming to Vancouver.
Week-long production of Bug, by Tracy Letts, at the Annex Theatre.
Vancouver Civic Theatres (VCT) and the City of Vancouver have launched an outstanding initiative, granting $100,000 in under-utilized theatre space to non-profit companies. Reality Curve is a lucky recipient and will be using the gorgeous, yet somewhat unknown Annex Theatre this September to stage ‘Bug’, by Pulitzer-winning playwright Tracy Letts.
You probably know Letts’ work (think August: Osage County, which he wrote, or you may have seen his acting chops in Weiner Dog or Homeland). He writes the kind of characters to fill a venue and Bug won’t disappoint. It’s a gritty thriller and our cast is chomping at the bit to dig into the material.
While we’re excited about the week-long run, we’re equally eager to see how VCT and the City will continue to find unique ways to help artists stage their work. It’s a very cool initiative that will enable lots of new productions this year and we’re lucky to be a part of it.
A live (free!) Coen brother’s piece, downtown Vancouver.
If the people can’t always get to the theatre, we must bring the theatre to them. Thanks to the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) we are launching three weeks of free, live street theatre in the downtown core. This rotating production will be at key downtown locations every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch hour so you can sneak a little culture in with your sandwich.
Waiting is a short piece by Ethan Coen that puts a cosmic spin on an all too familiar subject – bureaucracy. Share a dark chuckle and see the downtown in a new light as we bring another element to the DVBIA’s The Perch program.
Workshops, Improv for Business, and More.
Vancouver is anything but traditional, and we’re building a theatre company that reflects that. With fundraising initiatives including casting workshops, our PeopleCultureImprov program that brings the lessons of improv theatre into your workplace, and multiple exciting collaborations on the horizon, we are giddy with anticipation for the coming season.
Want to work with us?
Don’t be shy! Some of our best work comes from a crazy idea or unlikely collaboration. We are grateful to the artists and other companies who have laid the groundwork in this city and are open to working with anyone wanting to use the arts to make Vancouver come alive.
