Fort McMurray-based independent theatre company Symmetree Theatre is releasing a recording of their debut production Freeing Heaven’s Secrets online from April 2 to April 12, 2020.
Closed captioning will be available in English.
FREEING HEAVEN’S SECRETS follows the story of Scheherazade, a young blind girl on her deathbed, who promises her father that she will visit him in his dreams, and tell him what her heaven is like. On her journey to the other side, Scheherazade passes her blindness onto the audience, and gifts herself with sight, inviting the audience to experience her heaven through the element of sound alone.
ABOUT SYMMETREE THEATRE
“Freeing Heaven’s Secrets” was the debut performance of new Fort McMurray theatre company, Symmetree Theatre, whose mandate is to share stories about marginalized members of society, where the main conflict does not stem from the fact that they’re marginalized. We call it Symmetree because the company endeavours to share stories that are “reflections” (“symmetry”) of society on stage, in ways which advocate for and promote social “growth” (“tree”). www.symmetreetheatre.com
ABOUT FREEING HEAVENS SECRETS:
Freeing Heaven’s Secrets is a contemporary, sound-based performance designed for multicultural audiences, regarless of their cultural background, religious views, or the languages that they may speak.
