Showcase & Pitch Artists
Zuppa Theatre Co. - The Debacle
Zuppa Theatre Co. - The DebacleZuppa Theatre Co. is an ensemble theatre company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The company is driven by a core group of artists developing original performances in collaboration with like-minded individuals from related disciplines. Every Zuppa show is a ride through wild visions, genres, familiar stories and the unknown; the experiences, thoughts and inclinations of the lead artists determine the landscape. The company has developed a unique collaborative process that favours the intuitive over the formulaic and thrives on the play between the imagined and the real. At the heart of each show is the restless spirit of the actor. The group has toured as close to home as Mosers River and as far afield as Boston, Vancouver and Cardiff, Wales.

The Debacle

Following a terrible accident, a woman attempts to freeze memories of her dying sister,
and in the process learns the power of letting go. Featuring an extraordinary design of
glass jars and light, The Debacle is a sad, funny and highly theatrical portrait of a woman
facing the reality of being alone.

The Debacle premiered in Halifax in April 2011 to rave reviews. It will be presented in
Toronto at Nightwood Theatre’s Groundswell Festival in December 2011 and is ready to
tour in 2012.

“... a finely tuned, traumatic, walk on the tightrope of human despair…a masterful solo
(Jeremy Webb – The Chronicle Herald)

“…a marvelous actress to watch – fear, longing and loneliness pass across her face like
clouds across the sun”
(Kate Watson – The Coast)
