The Only Animal is known for it’s imaginative locales, creating theatre in swimming pools, in a theatre of snow and ice, and on False Creek. Their new offering, Nothing But Sky, takes place inside a live drawing with the story of the Canadian who first drew Superman.
Meet Joe, the artist, his best friend, Jerry, the writer, and Joanne, the original model for Lois Lane and the girl they both love. Get on board the skyrocket as their creation goes from slushpile to the most popular Superhero of all times. The play becomes a living comic book, where real and drawn characters merge as we discover that our closest friends are equal parts Villain and Hero. But the real danger comes when DC Comics gets a hold of Superman, and what you created might return to destroy you.
With 3-D projection mapping, panelled action sequences, and an animation team that includes Paul Dutton (Academy Award winner for Triplets of Belleville,) Nothing But Sky is a comic book biopic, where we leap off the cliffs of artistry and love… and hope that we can fly.
