Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre presents:
part of the Provocation Series at Sage Theatre’s 2018 IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists
When Melissa comes forward with the story of her sexual assault in grade 12, instead of support, she finds instead a fight against the school she loved, an administration she trusted, and classmates she valued. A story of healing, recovery, and most importantly colour, Vibrant is a true story of the Calgary education system. Told from the perspective of a college age Melissa, this piece plays with coloured paint and movement to ask the question: when the people in charge won’t protect you, who will?
The performance takes place behind Pumphouse Theatre.
Content Warnings: Talk of sexual violence and assault, mature language.
