Grand Acts of Theatre

Something Bubbled, Something Blue

Talk Is Free Theatre (Barrie, ON) in association with Outside the March (Toronto, ON)
Subtitles available in French

A celebration of our joyful drive for communal ritual, no matter what the restrictions we may live under.

Something Bubbled, Something Blue casts a surreal lens on the concept of a COVID wedding by playfully manifesting the metaphor of personal bubbles as inflatable Zorbs, which will be inhabited by the formally-attired members of a wedding party. Through music, choreography and live art gesture, this piece gamifies the limitations that the pandemic places on communal events. It aims to side-step the false choice between isolation or reckless endangerment, by exploring and exploiting the necessary restrictions that keep us safe but apart.

Something Bubbled, Something Blue was performed for a live audience on Saturday, September 12, 2020 in Barrie, ON. This live performance adheres to the health and safety guidelines of the region in which it was recorded.
