ROVE: The Legend of Rusty Point

ROVE: The Legend of Rusty Point is a twisted fairy tale featuring talking geese, textile artist oracles, irrational border guards, extreme-fitness trolls, buskers (of course), an invisible bus, lost sisters–one of daylight and one of shadow–and much, much, more!

ROVE will ask audience members to choose to follow one sister or another as their quests to become queen collide and separate, before reuniting as they near the end of their journeys.

Come be enchanted. You’ve walked the path in daily travel. Now look closer—see the cracks where blood dries the colour of rust and the buried story makes its longed-for escape. Enter a portal between 2 worlds and experience the journey of long-lost sisters separated as children, re-united by chance. Or fate? Divide your sympathies. Choose a path.

Extra notes for the audience:

This is an hour-long, outdoor, roving, site-specific piece so wear good footwear and dress warmly for inclement weather.  Beware of  goose poop! Flashlights are also welcomed and encouraged!
