Electric Company: Initiation Trilogy is an experiential and physical journey that blends the quality of a mini-festival with the sense of a private performance. Walk through three short theatrical installations inspired by provocative poetry collections which explore themes of feminism, sexuality and identity (God of Missed Connections by Elizabeth Bachinsky, Glossolalia by Marita Dachsel and What it Feels Like for a Girl by Jennica Harper). Initiation Trilogy celebrates the vitality of Vancouver’s literary scene and independent theatre community. Don't miss this very special event.
