impel theatre and Oldham Coliseum Theatre (Toronto, Ontario/Manchester, UK) present a fresh collaboration of the remote digital and interactive production of Caridad Svich’s An Acorn via Zoom. We continue to be isolated, more than 1 year on from the initial lockdowns. While vaccine rollouts mean that some semblance of “normal” life will return, the experience of this isolation, fear, and upheaval will linger with us. We have learned in this time about our fellow humans, and while there have been moments of hope, the divide between factions feels to have grown into a chasm. Will we ever reconnect? Or has the awareness of these differences changed us forever? Conceived by Kendra Jones and Blythe Haynes, the production features 2 actors who will be rehearsed in advance and present at the live performance; Canadians Ryan G. Hinds and Blythe Haynes who will perform from their homes. They will be joined by two guest performers from the UK who have never before read the script: Greater Manchester actors Mina Anwar and Darren Jeffries. The guest performers will receive the script and some instructions only 1 hour before their performance, and will share their cold read with the audience. The two groups will not meet until the day of the performance. The audience, too, will receive instructions for how they can participate and interact with the performers. May 6 at 3 pm. Available until May 17. https://www.coliseum.org.uk/shows/an-acorn-live-5801an/
