Electric Company Theatre announces the world premiere of Carmen Aguirre’s spellbinding new work, Anywhere But Here from February 4–15, 2020 at the Vancouver Playhouse.
A haunting blend of dark comedy and magical realism, the work is a vibrant celebration of Latinx theatre, with music and raps by Shad, that chronicles the many paths, real and imagined, we take to discover the truth — the truth about who we are, and where we may be headed.
Telling an engrossing story that intersects multiple timelines and spaces, Anywhere But Here introduces us to a host of fantastical characters who have experienced the pull of home, the ache of displacement, and the harsh realities of the border as they attempt to cross, guard, or survive it in Trump’s America.
Produced in association with Playwrights Theatre Centre. Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
Tickets from $19.99 at www.ElectricCompanyTheatre.com.
