Curtain Call 2011
Centrepointe Theatre, Ottawa, Canada
Glass mosaic, wood, steel
Curtain Call with Michèle Provost combines text and colourful iridescent glass mosaic tile to reflect light in a provocative and memorable way, engaging the public with humour and irony. The intention is to embrace all that is spectacular about theatre and performance, drawing inspiration from elegant colourful historic theatre billboards and referencing the plays and performances enacted upon the stage. Each panel mirrors and explores casual conversations that have and will be communicated within this lively community space. SHHHHHH in vibrant red tile sounds out this collective anticipation, as the curtain reveals and reminds the audience of their unique contribution of silence to the live event.
