shhh... "…eat the cupcakes. They are tasty and will make your time of mourning all the more enjoyable."

shhh… With magical lighting and infinite sensory delights, shhh… will envelop and enchant you.

Vancouver Canada’s tenacious seventeenth floor performance company goes international with their newest creation….

shhh… illuminates the story of a twelve year old girl, told through the voices and characters of her three dolls. Silenced by her sister’s watery death six years ago, her imagination has overthrown her sense of reality. Wanting to say good-bye to her beloved sister, she must overcome her obsession with the inanimate or live forever in a sleepless make-believe. In this innovative collaboration, seventeenth floor performance company smashes the boundaries between theatre, dance, music and visual art.
