      The Cultch, in association with Aurora Nova, presents a free livestream performance of White Rabbit, Red Rabbit on March 13.

      The play, written by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, will be performed by Vancouver-based actor and musician Amanda Sum.

      "Forbidden to leave his native Iran," reads the event info, "Soleimanpour wrote a play which travelled the world in his place. The audience joins each different performer on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty and ultimately where theatre can take you."

      The date of the performance was set for March 13 because March 13, 2020 was the day most theatres in the world had to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

      According to the event info Aurora Nova, the theatre-booking agency based in Berlin, "wanted to mark the anniversary of that day by creating an extraordinary global event that celebrates live theatre and the resilience of our artists and community. An event that will hopefully inspire in this time of uncertainty and isolation—bringing audiences together from all around the world."

      The performance takes place at 7:30 pm Pacific time and you can book free tickets here.
