A Giant Puppet Production
Olio and Opus is physical theatre for all ages, featuring circus esque fantasy, larger than life characters, and timeless slapstick. Olio is a persnickety old man who discovers a love for Opus, an insular gadget fixing older woman. What follows is an awkward but sweet courting.
In the summer of 2013, Olio and Opus will be traveling up and down the west coast of Canada and the United States. We eagerly await engaging you in our dramatized rediscovery of a childlike sense of joy.
Artistic duo Leona Marchand and Leah Kasinsky are the creators and performers of Un Théatre Un Peu Fou. Leona Marchand is an accomplished community spectacle artist who has been performing on the streets and city green spaces for the past 15 years. Leah Kasinsky is a creative young lass who recently graduated in Costume Design from the University of Victoria and is also immersed in the fantastical world of an emerging graphic novel. Together, we create larger than life spectacle through grassroots theatre.
Pang! Puppets! Pow!
