THE LIFE INSIDE

BY JAMES FAGAN TAIT & JOELYSA PANKANEA

November 16 – December 19, 2010

As they did with their celebrated adaptation of Crime and Punishment, Tait and composer Pankanea have crafted a highly stylized, yet cinematically performed piece that engages both the heart and the mind. Peasants on a country estate must deliver tragic news regarding a young girl to the members of her family, whom we see through the windows of their home. The tensions between life and death, happiness and profound sadness, blissful ignorance and painful knowledge give The Life Inside a bittersweet, aching quality, and a connection to a universal wisdom as old as man.

About Crime and Punishment

“Crime and Punishment is elegiac: profound in its themes, huge in its spectacle, and restrained in its aesthetic. The simple power of it all is enough to make you weep.” The Georgia Straight

“… this wholly local production deserves an international spotlight. All in all it’s an experience that’s not to be missed.” Vancouver Sun

“Utterly remarkable.” Vancouver Courier
