A Main Stage Production
“Entrance not for everybody.” — Herman Hesse
In this new work inspired by Herman Hesse’s 1927 novel of self-reflection and transformation, and staged for the Russian Hall, the audience is seated before a bank of mirrors. Somewhere within the reflection, a story begins. As the evening unfolds, the viewers become the viewed.
Steppenwolf was created with generous support from the City of Vancouver, Cultural Services, Canada Council for the Arts, BC Gaming Commission and the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
