She is a puppeteer, he is a musician. Life and death are performing in their cabaret. They present us with an old woman who is facing Death. Her time has come as soon as the show begins. The panorama of her life unfolds in fast motion. We witness the complete metamorphosis of a life in a dynamic, exuberant, unusual, hallucinatory form. From birth to death, from childhood to love : make-believe, high-wire, projections and fire - a large kaleidoscope swirls before her life is extinguished. We move from one stage of her life to the next, the scenes lit by the brilliance of unlikely characters and taking place during the implacable reign of the three Fates, presiding over our destinies, the one who weaves the string of life, the one who unwinds it and the one who cuts it ; three Fates, three destinies, Tria Fata. The puppet embodies its role of a universal symbol of humanity.

The Big Secret Theatre is not a secret anymore and at one point it wasn't even a theatre! The space, hidden away on the +15 level of Arts Commons was originally designed to function as a lounge. In 1987, One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre approached Arts Commons seeking space and the lounge space was leased to them on a trial basis. Today the company calls the Big Secret Theatre their permanent home. 

This venue has limited rental dates, to inquire about renting this space, please contact Johanne Deleeuw at or 403-264-3224, ext. 4370.
