PROJECTS

Since 2015, Passing Through Theatre has created and produced seven original works, in five cities across Canada. Our projects share an experimental, multidisciplinary approach that blend the boundaries between storytelling, puppetry, physical theatre, digital arts and music.

A SERIES OF STORIES FROM SOMEWHERE IN-BETWEEN

Created and Performed by
Shanice Bowrin

Rebekka Gondosh and

Lily Sutherland

A series of stories from somewhere in-between shares playful and heartfelt stories, both real and imagined, inspired by books, bookshops, and those who encounter them. Through storytelling, shadow puppetry, and music, Passing Through Theatre brings everyday stories to life in your local bookshop. 


Audiences are invited to join us outside the bookshop for an intimate sidewalk viewing experience. By peeking through the display window (from the outside-looking-in), performers behind glass will share tales of things lost, found, and the moments in-between. 

Originally commissioned and performed as part of In The Soil Arts Festival (Suitcase in Point, St. Catherines, ON).

EPHEMERAL HOME

Written by 
Lily Sutherland


Directed by 
Kelsey Dann

Performed by
Lily Sutherland and

Rebekka Gondosh

Ephemeral Home will take you on an adventure, without leaving the living room. Come and explore what 'home' means to us as human beings, and members of society. How are we affected by the homes we were born into, the homes we create for ourselves, and homes we never expected to discover? Using handheld lights, multiple voice recordings, projections and live music, the performers bring the audience together on a multi-sensory creative journey within the space of a Hamilton home.

Originally performed at Hamilton Fringe Festival (Hamilton, 2018).
