You write a message that you’ll never send. You connect to a stranger in the crowd. You finally get that off your chest. Tracks is a tour through the things we said, wish we’d said, and wonder if we’ll ever give ourselves a chance to say. You choose every step of how you take in this story of self-destruction and reconstruction.
Tracks is the newest project from Vena Amoris Projects (Boy Trouble, Edmonton Fringe). As the recipient of the Westbury Family Theatre Award, the project is being presented in the ATB Financial Arts Barns Backstage Theatre May 5-16, 2020 in Edmonton Fringe Theatre’s 2019/20 Off-Season.
