Just A Couple Of Zombies

iZombie Season 4 is a go! The CW has renewed the zombie drama for another season and both Eric Bempong and Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey have just finished shooting some really cool roles on Episode #401.

The show about an undead morgue attendant who assumes the personality of whichever brain she is eating and uses it to solve murders is one of the most consistently delightful shows on television. We would expect nothing less from Rob Thomas, who also created cult favorite Veronica Mars. Thomas runs iZombie along with Diane Ruggiero-Wright.

The iZombie crew has got to be one of the most entertaining groups on television.

It’s unclear how much of the cast will be coming back for iZombie Season 4 but, currently, iZombie stars: Rose McIver toplines the series, and stars alongside Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders, and Aly Michalka.

iZombie” season 3 recently concluded with a surprising twist, with the entire world finding out about the existence of the undead. And as executive producer Rob Thomas teased, season 4 will be about exploring a world where humans and zombies co-exist.

The iZombie TV show is loosely based on the characters from the Vertigo comic of the same name.

Marybelle Is In The Game!

Marybelle Sagard has booked an exciting one of a kind opportunity as one of the actors in the immersive theatre production of “A Game Of You” Directed by multiple award winning Belgian group Ontroerend Goed.

It premiered here in Vancouver July 28th and is at the Harbour Centre until September 15.

A Game Of You” has had worldwide success: The play has been a hit in 50 cities and 17 countries around the world. Some examples of countries where A Game Of You has performed: Canada, Singapore, UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Ireland, Portugal, Switzerland, Russia, Italy, Australia and others.

“This is a game in which the rules are bent and that only become apparent as you play…”

Running 30 minutes long, audience members enter the maze-like set and are guided through a number of rooms where everything you do and say is incorporated into what comes next. Of course, there are the expected technical stage tricks, as well as impressive improvisation from the actors. But the biggest takeaways are the personal interrogations that A Game of You forces you to make: about how you see yourself, how others see you, and how the art we create (and consume) somehow always reflects pieces of ourselves.

The best advice I can give is: be yourself, and don’t pick your nose.” — The Guardian

“When you leave the place, you want to go back…” — Journal de Quebec

“What shall one do behind the red curtains? Be yourself. Try it.” — GQ

A performing art at its finest…while still providing real entertainment.” — Adelaide Theatre Guide, Australia

A Game Of You provides closure for what one critic called “a trilogy of self-knowledge” by raising the essential question: who am I?

 

About: A Game Of You is a one-on-one labyrinth of mirrors and projections. A single visitor is guided through rooms and corridors, where he meets both real and virtual people who gradually create character out of him or her, based on the projections of others as well as their own. It’s about the subjectivity of self image and how the world is a projection of our own experience. A Game of You walks you inside an infinity triangle. Everywhere you look there’s an image of yourself reflected back.” — Carousel of Fantasies – Through a journey along several cabins, the visitor becomes his own avatar in some sort of theatrical computer game in which this mostly secret compartment – the space between your external mirror image and your inner self-image – functions as performance space. It turns ‘A Game of You‘ into a game of mirroring and being mirrored. The visitor only realizes how ingenious the construction of the performance is when, at the end, it becomes clear that this show is in fact exclusively made by the visitor as a participating audience. “WOW!!! …
