Created by industry professionals in collaboration with a diverse group of Metro Vancouver youth, REWIRE is a new and original multi-media theatre production that speaks to both youth and adults. On the night of a symbolic lunar eclipse and major video game event, a group of youth come together to bravely tackle root causes of stress including poverty, grief, and sexual assault.

Directed and written by Valerie Methot, in collaboration with RHYTAG, REWIRE highlights integrity, positive action, community support, and inspires positive change in the face of stress, anxiety, and social isolation. It is a bold, must-see production full of truth, tragedy and comedy, along with original music and spectacular visuals.
