2b theatre company is thrilled to announce the next in its Great Little Works series: Long Distance Relationships for Mythical Times. Created and Conceived by Gloria Mok, with Theatre du Poulet.
Long Distance Relationships for Mythical Times opens at the Halifax Central Library on September 8th at 9:00pm, and runs for just six shows until September 11th. Book your tickets here!
Two true stories about Long-distance Relationships are woven together with a timeless Chinese folktale about love and separation. Tea, dumplings, and great stories at the Halifax Central Library.
Gloria Mok is working with Halifax’s Theatre du Poulet (Carmen Lee and Roland Chun Shing Au) to weave together a personal story about long-distance relationships, immigration, and a Chinese astrological folktale about forbidden love. Utilizing food, simple objects, and conversational Cantonese, a dinner table transforms into a liminal space that explores the challenges and triumphs of seeking love and connection at a distance.
Great Little Works is 2b’s series of intimate performances based on humanity’s greatest works of theatre and literature, each brought to life by one performer at a table. These shows are uniquely designed for this moment; shows built for small audiences, safely performable during the pandemic, producing minimal ecological impact, and maximal emotional and spiritual value.
The event takes place on the 5th floor Sunroom of the Halifax Central Library.
Tickets must be purchased as Tables, so 1 Ticket = 3 Seats! After purchasing your table, we will be in touch with a Form to be filled out asking about all attendees’ contact info and dietary restrictions.
Tickets to this event are priced according to the three seats per table. We also have sliding scale pricing options for those who need them. If the listed ticket costs are still a barrier for you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (902) 453-6267. As part of our Access 2b initiative, we will never turn anyone away due to cost restrictions.
If you have the capacity, making works like these costs a lot (especially during a pandemic!) If you’re able to purchase one of our “Support The Work” ticket options, you can nourish 2b and help us to continue to create more exciting works like these.
Audiences will be masked for the duration of the performance, with the exception of moments of eating and drinking.
The following food and drink will be served during the performance: Jasmine Tea, Veggie Dumplings, Bitter Melon, and Walnut Cookies.
Audiences are welcome to opt in or out of consuming these items, and can do so through the Form that will be sent out following your ticket purchase. Please also use this form to let us know if you have any food allergies, food sensitivities, or dietary restrictions in advance.
