Tickets & Pricing
Josh Hite: A Vista documents a performance of the same name which took place at New Westminster’s Massey Theatre in 2019, one of Canada’s few remaining theatres with a hemp house rigging system. The Massey Theatre becomes the stage for an ever-changing sequence of painted theatrical backdrops—an attempt to partner with the theatre’s collective movement possibilities and limits. In Hite’s multimedia artwork, the labour that ordinarily marks a transition between scenes becomes the star of the show.
