1991 and The Shining Lake
A car drives down the highway at night. No fucking clue where its going.

Are you cool or are you a loser?

1991 is a modern myth about what its like to grow up in the early 90s as a victim of sexual assault in a community encased in fear.

In this snarly, unapologetic, overhead projection performance, Guilty by Associations Cole Lewis collides the nostalgic, the modern, the tragic, and the bizarre with a touch of riot grrl punk.

Cole Lewis - Director, Writer, Performer
Patrick Blenkarn - Dramaturge

Clelia Scala - Overhead Projections, Performer
Sam Ferguson -- Sound Design

A storyteller who's lived in Canada for a long time is having trouble describing her immigration experience. So instead, she's telling us about a girl, taken from her village by a giant bird and left alone in a vast forest. The girl is on a quest to go back to her village, even as she's putting down roots in this new, strange home.

The Shining Lake is a story within a story, a way to explain a true immigration experience entirely by telling lies. At once a very simple storytelling moment, and a portal into fantasy.

Monica Garrido - Actor
Lorena Torres Loaiza - Designer
