Produced by Theatre Conspiracy and Rumble Theatre


Theatre Conspiracy’s Isolation Suite.

Isolation Suite is a new immersive theatre piece by Theatre Conspiracy Artistic Producer Tim Carlson, in collaboration with Gavan Cheema, and the Rumble Theatre team.

The piece explores the continuum between the negative effects of social isolation and the restorative power of solitude. In the play, UnDone is going grey – physically, mentally, spiritually, existentially. “I’ve lost my identity but remain a presence. Am I still a person?”

Development will continue on Isolation Suite throughout the season, with an eye to premiere the full production in Spring 2021.


Following on the heels of our recent October workshop at Progress Lab, there will be an opportunity to have a look and listen to an excerpt of Isolation Suite at Sawdust Collector on Nov. 19. Sawdust Collector’s weekly series showcases exciting experimental work – in a wide variety of forms – from around Vancouver. It’s always a great night out!

Playwright/songwriter Tim Carlson and drummer/vocalist Christie Watson began playing together in June 2020 under the name Cold Calculi, writing and performing instinct-driven tunes for both Isolation Suite as well as future gigs and recording. Irregardless is part of a musical suite embedded in the show, a poetic exploration of social isolation playing the notes between sombre hush, indie irony and cathartic noise.
