CALGARY — With Calgary’s theatre season in full swing, there are lots of reasons to head indoors this month to catch a play. Here are the top picks for must-see theatre in October.

INTENSIONAL PARTICLE + SPLIT FLOW

Theatre Junction
Oct. 12-15


Minimal, radical, subtle and violent, Japanese artist Hiroaki Umeda is a multi-disciplinary choreographer, dancer, sound, image and lighting designer. In Intensional Particle, Hiroaki Umeda visualizes the energetic power of movement using motion sensors creating digital universes that develop a life of their own in which a body is seemly devoured by sight and sound.
 In Split Flow, speed is expressed through strokes of light and a slow moving body. A high luminance laser projects three primary colors – red, green and blue – in split-second velocity, which appear white to the human eye. But when the dancer moves through them, the white light splits into the three colours and different realities come into existence.

ONE MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY AND ONE MAN LORD OF THE RINGS

Pumphouse Theatre
Victor Mitchell Theatre at Pumphouse Theatre
Oct. 18-29

Two childhood favourites will be coming to life at breakneck speed on the stages of the Pumphouse Theatre this month. Charles Ross — Canadian actor, one-man storytelling machine, uber geek — will be playing all the characters, fighting all the battles and bringing back all the memories as he acts out the original Star Wars and Lord of the Rings trilogies in just one mind-bending, 60-minute act each.

FORTUNE FALLS

Alberta Theatre Projects and Catalyst Theatre
Martha Cohen Theatre
Oct.18 – Nov. 5

The wonderful, inventive, darkly whimsical Catalyst Theatre from Edmonton brings their story of the town of Fortune Falls to Calgary this month in partnership with ATP. One young security guard wanders the halls of Mercey Candy Factory, its doors long closed and the sweet joys it brought to the town a distant memory. That is, until a new owner arrives and changes everything. If their past productions are any indication of what’s in store, Fortune Falls is definitely not to be missed.

LEST WE FORGET

Forte Musical Theatre Guild and Lunchbox Theatre
Lunchbox Theatre
Oct. 24 – Nov. 12


War changes us all: those who fight, those who wait at home, those who weren’t even alive but who live with the consequences; we are all forever altered. These lasting effects are examined in this world-premiere production that uses music and song to journey from WWI to the present day sharing the stories of the lives of soldiers and their families.

SPLENDOUR

University of Calgary School of Creative and Performing Arts
University Theatre

Oct. 28 – Nov. 5


Four women sit in a palace, awaiting the return of the dictator. As the explosions in the distance grow slowly closer, the tension grows, and, unknown to them, the fragments of their lives become part of the mosaic of history.
