Warriors returning from battle
used to have to go through purification rituals
before they could rejoin their communities.
What ceremony will allow us to gather again?
A specially commissioned short play, created for and filmed in our empty theatre, Katharsis is a marking of this period when our theatre is in waiting.
Featuring: Tracey Nepinak
From the playwright:
I am a theatre rat, not a filmmaker. But the opportunity to write for an actor, in a theatre, and then have that story transmitted to the world through another medium, is enough of a lifeline to keep me connected.
We have always used the theatre to work things out, together. Even though we are not in the same physical space, we can come to together in the virtual space, and watch the actor in the physical space, and perhaps begin to work out some of these recent events that have separated us from each other.
The run of Katharsis has ended.
