Interplay Project 2Also Friday and Saturday June 8 and 9 The Contingency Plan and Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre present, The Interplay Project, an interdisciplinary performance lab that invites audiences to engage with experimental new works by established and emerging Vancouver artists. The Interplay Project is a contemporary performance lab that celebrates innovation and experimentation in the performing arts. Curated by The Contingency Plan, the production provides an opportunity for artists to play, challenge and discover new ideas around performance: How can a performance space be re-imagined and transformed from what is expected in a black box theatre? How can the art of live performance continue to surprise, provoke and engage with its audience? THE INTERPLAY PROJECT is thrilled to present six diverse, interdisciplinary artistic partnerships from emerging and established artists. Tix $15 at the door.
