Welcome to the House of Purification, where the elect are judged. Not all are worthy to make the Passage. Not all are willing. This theatrical performance explores history and the way we tell stories.
The Ottawa Stilt Union is interested in the unique theatrical landscape where intimate story-telling and spectacle meet. We use the tools at our disposal – stilts, acrobatics, song, language – to bring an audience with us to a new world. Nuit Blanche provides an opportunity to expose a wide public to our particular style of theatre. We are committed to an accessible theatre in which everyone is welcome – this is why we mostly work outdoors and this is an aspect of Nuit Blanche that inspires us – more free art for the people!
