ScreenTime is a screening series of performances on film, held throughout Vancouver with a variety of partners. Screenings are often followed by a conversation about the work, the artist and artists who made it, and the ideas bouncing between the two.
By Halory Goerger and Antoine Defroot
How serious is the entirety of human civilization? Four intrepid individuals begin with a blank stage and gleefully rebuild life as we know it. Their tools include mind melds, pickaxes, microphones, electric guitars, and four-part harmony. Ingeniously remaking social codes, laws of physics, philosophy, music, and human communication, Germinal posits the theory that human civilization may be just one big theatre trick. This layered study in theatre magic is one of the most talked-about shows on the international arts circuit.
In French with English surtitles.
“…an exceptionally inventive exploration of creativity, curiosity, and joy.”
“In creating a world, they’ve created a play, a thing of rippling, radiant light to be savoured before the darkness closes in once more.”
“I will simply say it is one of the most refreshing, exuberant, and clever explorations of human consciousness I have ever seen on the stage.”
We are very excited to present this edition of ScreenTime in partnership with our good pals The Electric Company Theatre.
