Tomorrow’s Child, an adaptation of sci-fi giant Ray Bradbury’s short story, explores our sense of hearing and crafts a landscape of sound that goes far beyond our everyday listening—it re-imagines the quirks of 50s sci-fi within a sonic environment created with cutting edge binaural technology. The short story itself is about a couple who are shocked to find that their newborn baby lives in a different dimension.
Matthew Waddell, Eric Rose and David Van Belle adapted the story for the stage six years ago and now Calgary theatre companies Ghost River Theatre and Vertigo Theatre have teamed up again to bring it back for another run. This time, online. This is a one-of-a-kind blindfolded theatre performance designed for headphones or earbuds in order to fully immerse audiences in the 3D audio effect of binaural technology.
CKUA’s Lisa Wilton spoke with Eric Rose, Ghost River Theatre’s artistic director and Craig Hall, artistic director of Vertigo Theatre, about the production:
You can experience the unique production online Thursday June 11th through Saturday June 13th at 8 pm. To purchase tickets or find out more information, visit the Ghost River Theatre website.
