The Reason I Perish

Alina Blackett, Vancouver

60 mins | 16+ (please be advised that any minor patrons must be seated outside of the licensed Beverage Garden, as directed by Festival ushers.)

A meditation on how life experiences can affect one’s health, the potentially devastating impact of trauma, and the isolating and distorting nature of certain diagnoses, this one-person show follows a character who is trapped in an unknown, liminal space. In an attempt to discover where they are, why they are there, and who they’re with, they search through a journal that has been left behind. Selections from the journal come to life through the character, providing a poetic roadmap to the possible meaning of their tragic situation.
