Behind-the-Scenes of STILL/FALLING Live Broadcast Rehearsal

Safety and innovation took centre stage as we rehearsed a live broadcast prototype of STILL/FALLING by Rachel Aberle this week!

We've now wrapped up our rehearsals for this live broadcast testing phase, but wanted to share a few behind-the-scenes photos from the process.

We are so grateful to Green Thumb Production Manager extraordinaire, Ruth Bruhn, for keeping safety as the number one priority as we explore new ways to deliver programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. These photos highlight some of the many safety measure that Ruth implemented this week.

And on the topic of safety, we would like to extend a huge thank you to our public health authorities and everyone working in healthcare for the continued work you are doing to ensure the safety of our community!

STILL/FALLING is one-person show that tells the story of a teenager experiencing depression and anxiety for the first time. We are excited to be able to offer a new way to continue sharing this important story with young people during this challenging time.

If you are interested in learning more about STILL/FALLING, or booking a performance in 2021, please email touring@greenthumb.bc.ca.
