When the Colours Ran Away is a digital storytelling piece about an exciting and most unexpected experience two eight-year-old children have during their trip to an Art Museum. Rumours about a painting with colours the likes of which they've never seen has got them all the more excited. But once there, they notice something strange - the colours from the painting have all run away!
A digital performance, inspired by the paintings of Emily Carr, about two boys, errant colours and artworks imbued with life (literally!)
This piece was commissioned by the Vancouver International Children's Festival for their online edition in 2021.
For Ages 4 years & above children and families
Event Duration 20 minutes
