Based on the childhood memoirs of Salvador Dalí and his sister Ana María, The Lost Hours simulates a dark ride through a unique interactive environment for a single audience member at a time.

This installation performance by local visual performance ensemble 8ROJO marks its Calgary debut as part of Beakerhead. The group has developed a unique style with its interdisciplinary performances for intimate spaces and this show is the perfect chance to experience it.

The Lost Hours received the Innovation in Performance award at the 2016 STOFF Festival in Stockholm, Sweden and represented Canada at the 2ème Biennale of Mime and Gesture in Paris, France, in 2017.

Featuring visuals in motion based on Dalí’s theories of space and dimension, the show combines performance art, mask work, and physical theatre to portray the vibrancy reflected within our early childhood moments.

The Lost Hours runs September 12 to 22, 2019 at the Motel Theatre, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). Each performance is approximately 15 minutes long and is performed for a single audience member at a time.
