    Sparks guaranteed

    Falling in love: so love is a fall? Sometimes. And it can be fatal! Think of Romeo and Juliet: two warring families pitted against two determined teenagers with loving hearts.

    DynamO Théâtre shakes up the classic tale, incorporating acrobatics, swordfights, juggling, and a rotating set. Four actors play all the parts and comment on the action; Shakespeare himself is invited to speak. Can the inevitable be avoided? All we know is that if we’re going to reinvent the story, we have to find a way to overcome the power of hate.

  6. Dance

    Grades 7+

    • Apr 12, 2018, 12:00pm (bilingual)

    Featuring the National Arts Centre Orchestra
    Choreography by Mark Godden

    Atmospheric and brooding, Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s deliciously gothic Dracula lives up to the rich history of its famous source material with its smouldering eroticism, mysterious transformations, dancing gargoyles, and flying bats. Performed to the lush, evocative music of Gustav Mahler, Mark Godden’s inventive and sensual choreography breathes dramatic new life into the macabre yet irresistible tale of the immortal vampire and his dark passions. 

    Dracula has thrilled, terrified and delighted audiences since its premiere in 1998, becoming a treasured favorite in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s repertoire.

    $10 + HST | One act without intermission
    Produced by Sal Capone Productions (Vancouver/Toronto)

    Hip-hop theatre mash-up
    Curriculum connections in Social Sciences, Music, Drama, Cultural Studies, Psychology

    This raw and passionate tale by playwright Omari Newton digs deep into the lives of a hip-hop crew coming to terms, personally and professionally, with the police-shooting death of their DJ, Sammy. In the aftermath of the tragedy, this once-tight group struggles with grief in different ways. Do they carry on with canned beats? Or do they seek revenge? With seismic hip-hop beats and powerhouse performances, Sal Capone raises a mighty fist to the difficult issues of our time – prejudice, homophobia and injustice – with grace and wit.

    Advisory: Mature themes, strong language and violence.

    Curriculum connections in Literature, Drama, Music, Social Sciences, Geography, Humanities

    Based on the novel by Ottawa’s beloved Brian Doyle, Up to Low is the magical and mystical tale of a young boy’s journey to manhood. Twelve-year-old Tommy is on the road with his father and his boozy Uncle Frank, heading back to the cabin they haven’t visited since Tommy’s mother died. But Tommy also remembers Bridget, whose eyes are the deep green of the Gatineau Hills. Filled with deserted farms, smoky taverns and midnight rows upriver, Up to Low captures 1950s Ottawa Valley in a way that is both familiar and brand new.

    I can hear your heart beating in my ear

    An empty white space; bright light. We could be in a museum gallery, but the works on display here are teenagers and adults wearing headsets. Little by little they reveal themselves, through their tentative presence, through their disturbing or amusing statements. They talk about everything: themselves, their family, their future; they play Truth or Consequences, they exchange pieces of clothing. What’s real in all of this? The performance is different in every host city, depending on the local young people cast in the show. A meaningful and vibrant portrait of life captured in the moment.

    Stay tuned for the casting call! Impatience has played in Montreal, Mons (Belgium) and Toronto, and is en route to Ottawa-Gatineau.
