The Archive of Missing Things is theatre unlike anything you have ever seen. At a table in a library, with a wireless headset and an iPad, you get to be a sleuth in an online mystery. You choose your own path, and clues are everywhere – in the library all around you and in the live conversations you overhear in your headset. You have 90 minutes to solve the puzzle. Can you do it? The Archive of Missing Things was created with Trillium-Award-winning writer Kate Cayley, award-winning sound designer Brian Riley, and computer programmer Ned Zimmerman.
The Archive of Missing Things has been created in partnership with Dalhousie Libraries
“Quiet, small and beautiful performances from the Zuppa trailblazers. By the end I was openly weeping.”
– Michael Lake, The Coast, Best of Stage 2016, on Zuppa’s How Small, How Far Away.
“It’s glorious […] a transformative night at the theatre”
– Meghan Hubley, The Globe and Mail, on Zuppa’s Pop-Up Love Party.
“Pop-Up Love Party was an undoubted festival highlight for us in 2015. I've seen it three times and would happily see it many, many more.”
– Matthew Austin, Mayfest, Bristol, U.K.
