Pathetic Fallacy

Created by Anita Rochon / THE CHOP THEATRE, VANCOUVER

Creator Anita Rochon set herself the challenge of creating a touring piece with an environmental footprint of zero.

Pathetic fallacy – the attribution of human feelings to non-human things, like the weather – comes together with landscape painting, small talk, and meteorological science in this personal work. Using a broadcast media green screen, this piece explores our complicated relationship to weather.

Each performance, a different local actor will take on the central role in this curious and hopeful show that draws a line between ancient weather gods and our present-day climate crisis.

RUNNING TIME – 60 MINUTES, NO INTERMISSION.

GUEST PERFORMERS
Alex Currie (March 19), Andrew McNee (March 20), Brian Linds (March 21), Gregor Craigie (March 22), and Mark Chavez (March 23)
