HIDE premiered this piece in Ottawa in May of 2012 at a sold-out multi-company site-specific event called SubDevision. Modeled after Vancouver’s HIVE events, SubDevision saw companies from Ottawa take over a church and perform in all the nooks and crannies they could find.
HIDE was initially performed in a church antechamber with lots of cupboards, but it is site-adaptive and always looking for new homes to invade.
Part Audio Tour, Part Furtive Speed Date
A fur coat sets out to find its body by bringing unsuspecting audience members on a tour to try and jog their shared memory. Sound, dioramas and whisky are combined to evoke an absent protagonist who is looking for a match in a piece that is part museum walk, part game of hide and seek.
