Rumble Theatre, in association with Aurora Nova, is pleased to present the Canadian premiere production of BLANK by Nassim Soleimanpour, an interactive experience where Audience and Performer collide and collaborate to spark a new, moving life story each night.
Known for creating plays without directors, sets and rehearsals, acclaimed Iranian playwright Soleimanpour (White Rabbit Red Rabbit) takes it to new extremes with BLANK. As formally inventive as it is engaging, BLANK reverses the typical theatre experience: A script riddled with blanks leaves the audience in charge of how the story will unfold. The concept might be simple, but the result is nothing short of empowering as a random audience member sees their own future determined by the imagination of others.
Each night (and matinee) will feature a different performer who, like the audience, will be interacting with the blank-riddled script for the very first time. We’ve got a terrific line-up of theatre talent who will be taking the stage for our production of BLANK, including Dave Deveau as his alter-ego Peach Cobblah, Kim Sənklip Harvey, Allan Morgan, Emelia Symington Fedy, Hazel Venzon, and Maiko Bae Yamamoto.
