A Last Resort

Created by Camille Gingras and Candelario Andrade

In 2004, video artist Candelario Andrade left his home in Mexico and set off in search of a new life. That same year, playwright Camille Gingras returned to Canada as a last resort. An intimate multimedia performance, A Last Resort explores the lengths two people will go for that perfect life just beyond the horizon.

It was a sweet, sweet show with a finale that was so charming it made me smile out loud. – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier.
