A renowned visual artist is beloved for her daring nude portraits that display her unique and tiny body for all to see. But when she asks her gallery curator and self-professed biggest fan out on a date, we find out how he really views her body when it’s in front of him in the flesh. If he describes her portraits as erotic does that mean he can find her attractive?

This unlikely romantic comedy gets physical and political as these two confront voyeurism, self-exploitation, and the need to be seen in this intimate and incisive new play.

Inside Out is a disability theatre company in Calgary, Alberta and believes that theatre is for every body; on stage, in the community, and in our audiences.  They produce and present plays created by artists with disabilities and their allies that insist on and celebrate their place in the public sphere.  Elaine Lee is the inaugural Inside Out Theatre Playwright-in-Residence, a unique position in Canadian Theatre.

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
