A virtual performance that tells the story of an unlikely friendship made during a time of isolation opens the Department of Theatre and Film’s 2020/21 season.

Time Within the Window was created entirely online, and will be performed virtually by Acting IV honours students Jordan Bourquin and Ayla Hamilton. It was conceived and developed over Zoom by Bourquin and Hamilton, along with instructor Heidi Malazdrewich and Ridge Romanishen.

Not only have they created a theatre piece that is utterly engaging and thoughtful, they have done so through a new online process.

This new and timely work explores how two people navigate new relationships as the world around them pauses in a state of uncertainty. 

“The work that the students are doing on this project is remarkable,” said Malazdrewich. “Not only have they created a theatre piece that is utterly engaging and thoughtful, they have done so through a new online process.”

Time Within the Window features exciting design elements created for the live online theatre performance by production designer and faculty member Adam Parboosingh, and is supported by technical staff and faculty within the Department of Theatre and Film.

The performance runs Tuesday, December 1 to Saturday, December 5, starting at 7:30 pm each evening. Everyone is welcome to tune in to view the live performance from the comfort of their own homes via a private YouTube channel.

Admission is free, but reservations are required. Please call the 24-hour Reservation Line at 204.786.9152, or visit UWinnipeg’s Department of Theatre and Film website for more information.
