Shadow theatre duo Mind of a Snail has constructed a magical portal in their living room, and they want to invite you in! With live music, a multi-camera set-up, overhead projectors, and delightful and surprising use of interactive technology. By the creators of Fringe hits “Caws & Effect”, “Curious Contagious”, and “Multiple Organism”. A live stream based on connection, transformation, and transparencies. Every show is different!

More about the company

Chloe is a queer, non-binary Jew-nitarian. Jessica is also queer, with a mixed-race background. Both are settlers on Coast Salish land and continue to uncover the layers of privilege and responsibility that living in this part of the world entails. Mind of a Snail stands in solidarity with those who are doing the much-needed activism to decolonize this place.
