Nightwood Theatre presents an UnSpun Theatre Production

Spring and Summer 2021
Digital and live performances
Nightwood is pleased to present UnSpun Theatre’s Lost Together by Shira Leuchter with Michaela Washburn. In this micro-performance, audience members enter one at a time to share a story about something they’ve lost. Once shared, Michaela and Shira build and present a small object that encapsulates their guest’s story, which is added to an ever-evolving exhibition, reminding us that loss doesn’t have to be a solitary reckoning. As this performance is for one audience member at a time our goal is to bring the piece closer to you with four locations, starting south in the Distillery District, moving to the west side of Toronto, to the east in Scarborough and then up into Northern Ontario at the Nipissing First Nation’s Big Medicine Studio. An online version will also be made available to enable flexibility during these uncertain times.
“Brilliant, and unlike anything I’ve experienced… [an] intimate and unforgettable piece of live art”
