My Summer was our second duoshow with the same theatrical conventions as in My Americana. The duoshow is a new art form developed by Ollie Collins delivering the words, and musician, Geoffrey Victor Pope, playing live music through a dozen different instruments. The music highlights the scenes, serves as transitional elements, and connects with the words to tell the story. My Summer was an honest piece about one man's summer in Portland. Greyhound Buses. Monday Funday. Dodgeball. Malt Monday. Cheap Neon Signs. Loneliness. Flowers. Death. Ducks. July 4th. Canada. The Calgary Stampede. The Alberta DHS Office. Love. Human Connections. Vancouver Weed Cafes. Heroin on the Streets. Daydreams. Spaceships.
Written and Directed by Ollie Collins
Music by Geoffrey Victor Pope
