Event Notes

× Best Life is a new work brought to you by one of Vancouver’s most innovative experimental companies. An immersive and relational work, to be performed by an audience, for each other, Best Life is inspired by the machines that make our lives better. What if these domestic machines could whisper to us the stories they are caring for? In Best Life, they are the audience’s companions—everyday ‘R2D2s’ that teach us how to perform the show together. Scenes emerge that tell the story of a suburban neighbourhood, over a span of 50 years; an origami of everyday objects, building a shared narrative of longing in this moment. An intimate and participatory audience experience that will simultaneously take you back into the past as well as forward into the far, far future, Best Life also asks a much bigger question about what it is we are leaving behind.

Best Life was developed through LIFT’s Concept Touring Digital Residency, the Deer Lake Artist’s Residency and through the Shadlbolt Centre for the Arts. Created by T/R’s Artistic Director Maiko Yamamoto, in collaboration with Antoine Bedard, Arthi Chandra, Itai Erdal and Keely O’Brien. Special thanks to Remy Siu, Leah Weinstein, Cindy Mochizuki and Kyle Loven.
