A CABARET ABOUT WHY ALL THE ANIMALS SOUGHT REFUGE
Music by John Millard
Lyrics by Tomson Highway
Book by Martha Ross
Directed by Adam Paolozza
Thursday, October 20 at 7:30PM
A ragged group of animals flee from a vicious forest fire and seek refuge in Bear’s cave. Waiting out the inferno, they reflect on their lives, their lost garden, and their impending doom. The MC hilariously played by John Millard tells jokes and stories and gives political context to the songs. This beautiful dystopian cabaret is told through songs that hang in the air amidst joyous humor in this poignant and entertaining cabaret.

A visceral music storytelling show centred on the Battle of Vimy Ridge that probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve. Featuring inventive musical interpretations of WWI soldier songs – which were recognized with the 2022 JUNO nomination for Best Traditional Roots Album – Ridge is a vivid, kinetic ride through history, as well as an intimate, personal examination of our connection to the past that passionately argues against the exploitation of young lives.

Warm-hearted, funny, smart, and accessible: Experience RAVEN, a powerful and refreshingly different piece of contemporary circus theatre about motherhood. Based on their own experiences as artists and mothers, the performers intelligently and strikingly shed light on the stigma of the German term “Rabenmutter” (raven mother) meaning "selfish mother."
BONUS SHOW! PROPHECY FOG
Created and Performed by Jani Lauzon
Directed by Franco Boni with Environmental Design by Melissa Joakim
March 23, 2023
Prophecy Fog begins with a journey into the Mojave Desert in search of Giant Rock, armed with the question: Can a site still be sacred if it has been desecrated? Performed in the round, Prophecy Fog weaves together the performance skills of Juno-nominated veteran Jani Lauzon with evocative environmental design and projections that transport the audience beneath the desert skies.
Please note that Prophecy Fog is a general admission performance and patrons are seated both on chairs and on cushions on the floor.
