Nothing But the Sky

****Runs Feb. 20 - Mar. 2***
(Tickets as low as $10!)

"Vancouver’s love affair with comic books and nerdism continues with a fascinating new play from The Only Animal."

The Only Animal is known for it’s imaginative locales, creating theatre in swimming pools, in a theatre of snow and ice, and on False Creek. Their new offering, Nothing But Sky, takes place inside a live drawing with the story of the Canadian who first drew Superman.

Meet Joe, the artist, his best friend, Jerry, the writer, and Joanne, the original model for Lois Lane and the girl they both love. Get on board the skyrocket as their creation goes from slushpile to the most popular Superhero of all times. The play becomes a living comic book, where real and drawn characters merge as we discover that our closest friends are equal parts Villain and Hero. But the real danger comes when DC Comics gets a hold of Superman, and what you created might return to destroy you.

With 3-D projection mapping, panelled action sequences, and an animation team that includes Paul Dutton (Academy Award winner for Triplets of Belleville,) Nothing But Sky is a comic book biopic, where we leap off the cliffs of artistry and love… and hope that we can fly.

    Hi Sue! Not sure if you've seen this show yet (I know it's still running this weekend), but The Georgia Straight has done a write-up about it in this week's newspaper. Under the Arts section :)

      Sue, you are Event Host for this show (yay!), and have editing rights for the meet up info. Do you want to add the dates (Feb 20 - March 2) so it shows as an active meet up (it's currently listed in "past meet ups")? I would do it for you, but my editing privileges have been taken away for this event :-o

      Can't seem to figure out how to edit the post now - it doesn't give me an edit option... Does it have something to do with it being an event that Meetup thinks has passed?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
