Reverberations creates Site-Specific Performances on Love, Aging & Jewish Heritage

  • Reverberations creates Site-Specific Performances on Love, Aging & Jewish Heritage

Watch a life slowly unfold through the sound equipment used to capture it. In Reverberations, audiences are divided into small groups of 20 to rove through five different performance spaces. Based on the memories of writer and award-winning sound designer Brian Linds, multiple sound mediums are mixed with live performance to replay key moments from Brian’s life: his parents’ love story, a childhood act of betrayal, his Bar Mitzvah, his mother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and a moment of lucidity his mother experienced while in the late stages of the disease. Combining innovative sound technology with vintage systems - including a live mix of LPs, cassettes, reel-to-reel tape, 8-track, and digital recordings - Reverberations creates a dynamic and immersive sensory experience of a life fully lived.

Reverberations premiered at Belfry Theatre’s 2017 Spark Festival, where "audiences enjoyed the novelty of moving from space to space and loved the idea that each group’s journey was a unique unfolding of the story told” says creator Brian Linds. “They were also inspired to share with the performers and audience members their own experiences of loss, betrayal, and love. It was deeply touching for our team to experience.”

Following the successful premiere at The Belfry, Presentation House Theatre partnered with Reverberations Collective to bring this unique experience to Lower Mainland audiences. Noting what compelled him to program the material, Presentation House Artistic Director Kim Selody says, “Brian Linds' Reverberations is immersive, personal and celebratory. His creation honours the life of his mother, and what it feels like to lose someone to Alzheimer’s disease. Having lost my own mother in the same way, I was deeply touched by how Brian approached his experiences. His choice to end with a celebration is a touch of genius.”

Reverberations by Brian Linds. Co-Produced by Presentation House Theatre and Reverberations Collective in association with Mortal Coil Performance. Presentation House Theatre (333 Chesterfield Avenue, North Vancouver) March 7-17, 2019. 7:30pm Weekdays & Saturdays | 1pm & 4pm Weekends.
