      EVENT DETAILS
      TigerMilk Collective presents Apparition




      In Apparition (an uneasy play of the underknown), five characters emerge into a cranky backstage. "After the banquet goes wrong, after everyone's gone, after they're standing there alone talking about rowing in blood, after he says it is still night and she says it's dark, but it's glimmering...After that. After that we enter." They proceed to squabble, tease, scare and sing as they navigate their way through this ghostworld.

      The play, which premiered in New York in 2005, subverts the horror genre with beautiful language, modern humour and trembling insight into the classic tragedy it fractures with theatrical conventions.

      TigerMilk Collective first came to prominence in the Vancouver theatre scene in 2006 with member Miranda Huba's play Hospital City, which brought an overlay of urban pop to traditional storytelling. This stylistic approach was continued in their exploration of women's contradictory impulses within their fantasies and nightmares in Stupid Little Girls (2007). This approach is perfect for Apparition, which locates both a familiar tragedy and the horror genre in a lonely, modern city. TigerMilk has a history of creating electric and stunning physical imagery, which lends itself to this modern ghost story.
