Derelict & Lancaster Arts present The Archive of Missing Things
A contemplative game happening undercover in a library.
Equipped with an iPad and a headset, you have 90 minutes to explore a maze-like archive in search of the secret at its centre, guided by a live performance happening discreetly around you. Created by Zuppa with Trillium-Award-winning writer Kate Cayley, this performance, online book and game, travels through the debris of civilization in the age of rising sea levels.
“a hypnotic experience that takes on more layers of mystery and intrigue as it goes on. NNNN.” - Now Toronto
“... one of the most incredible experiences with performance art that I’ve had in recent memory.” - Mooney on Theatre, Toronto
“Imagine a high-tech theatrical hybrid of the works of Marcel Proust and the Myst series of computer adventure games, and you’re in the ballpark of where Zuppa Theatre Co. is playing.” - Local Express, Halifax
