  PHOTOG: AN IMAGINARY LOOK AT THE UNCOMPROMISING LIFE OF THOMAS SMITH
  THURSDAY OCTOBER 14, 2010 | 16:00 h and 20:00 h
AT THE SIR JAMES DUNN THEATRE |GET TICKETS
  An Imaginary Look at the Uncompromising Life of Thomas Smith
  Drawn from real life accounts of top conflict photographers.
One of Vancouver’s premier performance companies examines the juxtapositions and internal struggles
that many conflict photographers experience between foreign soil and home turf; between privilege and
suffering; between disconnect and belonging; between war and peace.

This exploration of one conflict photographer’s final moments aims to artistically reconcile a life of
extreme landscapes, incorporating verbatim text, dazzling physicality, computer animation, video and
traditional theatre. The end result is a deeper connection between our own lives and the lives of those we
see in the news every day.
