In the hat making capital of the world, time evaporates like a splash of silver mercury. A swirl of actors and puppets animate this Alice-in-Wonderland-like adventure where everyone breaks into song at the drop of a hat.
Wildly entertaining and thought provoking, Quick Silver theatricalizes America's hazardous industrial practices and its imprint on the environment and society by drawing audiences into a story of criss-crossing family lines around the life of a river and a hat-making factory.
With a fast-growing reputation for risk-taking, hybrid performance theatre, Gas & Electric Arts jumps into the seriously surreal world of Kesselring Award-winning playwright Kira Obolensky and her factory town fable, Quicksilver, which was named the "best experimental theatre piece" of 2003 by Minneapolis critics.
