An Edmonton-based theatre company is about to mount a production based entirely online.
The play Tracks was scheduled to debut at the ATB Arts Barns this month as part of the Fringe Theatre Spotlight program. Instead of cancelling the show – the production has been reimagined.
Tracks is an online theatrical experiment where you choose which paths to follow, featuring work by an ensemble of Alberta’s promising next generation of storytellers.
“This is a show about a train station. This is a show about the message you meant to send but never got around to writing. This is a show about the ways we care. This is a show about the thing you made and shoved in a box in the closet because it wasn’t what you needed it to be. So take the box off the shelf, take a deep breath, and come find out what’s inside.”
Beth Dart is the director of Tracks. She joined Grant Stovel on Alberta Mornings to share more:
Tracks runs nightly at 8pm, Tuesday through Sunday this week. There will also be 2pm matinees on Thursday and Saturday.
This performance is a fully online experience that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. At least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled performance, instructions will be sent to the email address on your account on how to access the performance.
