This world premiere production from internationally acclaimed 2b theatre recreates the Sistine Chapel in the Halifax Central Library. Unconscious at the Sistine Chapel tells a story about buried urges, artificial intelligence, and an unlikely encounter between Minna Bernays and Nora Barnacle, accompanied by their respective partners: Sigmund Freud and James Joyce. A parallel contemporary story features a young academic and a brilliant entrepreneur who clash over how to fill in gaps in the historical record, what makes history come alive, and who should be able to tell these stories.

Funny, smart, and sexy, the play imagines a collision between two of the great revolutionary thinkers of the modern period, and introduces us to the women who inspired them, challenged them, and were ultimately eclipsed by them.


This is a Canada Summer Jobs funded position. Applicants must be returning students. 

HOURS: 35 hours/week from June 6 – July 29 (8 weeks)

PAY: $12/hour

The Outreach and Event Coordinator will administratively support the world premiere of Unconscious at the Sistine Chapel (running June 15-26) and plan and execute 2b’s annual LobsterPalooza fundraiser (taking place on Sunday, July 24).
