2020-2021 Season

In 2020 our activities were upended but that hasn’t stopped us from creating and collaborating.

Alex Bulmer is smiling at the camera, wearing mint sunglasses and holding a cane close to her. She is wearing a grey hoodie and leather mustang jacket overtop. The image is lined by red vertical lines on each side.

The Listening Stage, Blind Imaginings; a celebration of writing! Tuesday April 20, 2021.

A moving Image of Alex Bulmer centre screen. She looks off, pensively, into the distance. Alex is white, with short sandy coloured hair and wears a white hoodie. Around her head white tissues magically float up into the air. Above her head, the following yellow words flash : “Common Boots Theatre Presents Postcards from my Balcony” . In the bottom half of the screen,more words appear: “Written and Performed by Alex Bulmer. Directed by Leah Cherniak. April 22nd, 7:30pm”. The moving image plays on repeat.

We’ve been exploring digital storytelling with Postcards From My Balcony. Join us (virtually!) for a sneaky peak preview screening Thursday April 22, 2021.

Watch the film (all 10 1/2 minutes!) and then stay for live music by Deanna H. Choi and John Millard, conversations, and hopefully some jokes and laughter.

An image of  the bottom of someone's legs, wearing blue jeans and black shoes, standing on a wooden platform. A white cane to the right of the shoes.

In early 2021, our development of audio/digital theatre continues. We will workshop an original work Perceptual Archeology based on Alex Bulmer’s blind travel writing, with the goal of an audio-led live binaural performance in 2022.
