Betas’s Baby Sister

A love letter to the lost art of browsing co-created by innovative video artist Nick Bottomley, performance-poet-in-residence Vanessa Smythe and OtM Artistic Director Mitchell Cushman. Set in the dying days of VHS rentals, Beta’s Baby propels audiences through storytelling encounters in a brick-and-mortar video rental shop.

In 2017 and 2018 Beta’s Baby received development workshops and public showings in partnership with The Kick and Push Festival in Kingston, Ontario.
