Good Things To Do
Good Things To Do by Rumble Productions
Blending a dreamy sonic landscape, solitary physical environment, and an unexpected use of technology, Good Things to Do invites participants to place themselves within a dreamscape in which they possess extraordinary powers. This wondrously immersive experience is a meditation on goodness, generosity, and the struggle to stay tender in a world that asks us to be hard.
The project was originally a live performance/installation incorporating digital design.
Following a COVID-19 pivot, Good Things to Do was taken on by Rumble Theatre where the piece has adapted, or perhaps found its form by embracing its digital form, having reached audiences across Canada, and well beyond.

Good Things to Do was originally created by "The Good Things Collective". It was developed with the support of Boca del Lupo, and first showcased at the rEvolver Festival, and the inaugural FOLDA (2018).
