Speed Stunned Imaginations

Speed Stunned Imaginations is an original shadow play that explores themes of transportation, modern life, and new spatial imaginations. Developed over a period of 6 months, this work drew from the experiences and stories of youth in Vancouver. Participants came from the Aboriginal Focus School, Sir Charles Tupper Secondary, Lord Selkirk Elementary, Winston Churchill Secondary, and Britannia Secondary, contributing stories, puppets, and music ideas inspired by their experiences of moving through their city.

Produced by the Western Front and in collaboration with Gamelan Bike Bike, Speed Stunned Imaginations premiered at the Roundhouse’s youth-week event on May 6, 2015, with an outdoor performance in Dude-Chilling Park on July 7, 2015
