We take a next step forward in the creation of Isolation Suite with a late-October workshop at Progress Lab. This one focuses on the musical aspects of the show and we invite you to have a look and listen to an excerpt at Sawdust Collector on Nov. 19. Sawdust Collector's weekly series showcases exciting experimental work – in a wide variety of forms – from around Vancouver. It's always a great night out!
Playwright/songwriter Tim Carlson and drummer/vocalist Christie Watson began playing together in June 2020 under the name Cold Calculi, writing and performing instinct-driven tunes for both Isolation Suite as well as future gigs and recording. Irregardless is part of a musical suite embedded in the show, a poetic exploration of social isolation playing the notes between sombre hush, indie irony and cathartic noise.
Conspiracy aims to premiere Isolation Suite in spring 2021 in co-production with Rumble Theatre, where Christie also serves as managing producer. And, to make it cozier still, Conspiracy will be sharing office space with Rumble as of November 1.
The Sawdust Collector date is the first in a series of excerpts leading to full public in-progress performances of Isolation Suite at PL 1422 next June, Toronto in August, presentation in Rumble Theatre’s Tremors event in fall 2020, and then premiere in spring 2021.
