This show explores the concept of procrastination through acrobatics. Video games and fiction intertwine with real life. The structure could be stronger, and the show could have been longer, but the script was funny and I really enjoyed the idea of it.
One of the main things about the show is it heavily relies on references to video games and anime culture. So if you aren't or in that world of video games or anime, you may feel lost or out of place in the theatre. The only thing keeping those references together is acrobatics. So the show mainly has acrobatics as the glue to keep the audience interested when all she starts to fall. (Haha, get it? Fall? It's acrobatics and they fall. Nevermind...)
My Imagination Ran Away Without Me is playing at the Waterfront Theatre 6 - 16 September as part of the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
