Stories of Love & Passion

Stories of Love & Passion – A Fundraiser for PEERS
Metro Studio       Jan 22 at 8pm

Stories poster web_cropThe Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts mixes jazz and burlesque with raw seduction in these heart-breaking, hilarious and taboo tales of sex work, unplanned pregnancy, loss of virginity and more. With live accompaniment, Rosie creates a night of entertainment that is a luscious pleasure to the senses while also being subtly subversive, perfectly frank and completely titillating.

Part of the mandate of this show is to raise awareness for sex workers’ rights and to connect with local organizations that support sex workers. We are so lucky to have PEERS here in Victoria. PEERS is an organization that provides outreach and care and wellness programs for local sex workers. Rosie spent the fall touring this show across the United States, in all her travels she couldn’t find another organization like it.

Join us for a night of entertainment and learn more about what PEERS provides for our community with all profits going to PEERS.

PEERS Victoria is an innovative, multi-service grassroots agency that was established by, with, and for sex workers in 1995. Through direct service delivery and community partnerships, PEERS provides an array of outreach and drop in harm reduction and support services alongside education and employment training for current and former sex workers. safersexwork.ca

SKAM’s Annual Summer Festival

SKAM’s Annual Summer Festival (formerly Bike Ride)
Cecelia Ravine Park and the Galloping Goose
July 10 – 12, 2015

Our annual summer festival gets a makeover. The event runs for more hours over one weekend, accessibility is now beyond bicycles, and has a snazzy new name. The festival formerly known as Bike Ride still features curated short plays by artists from across Canada in unexpected locations along the Galloping Goose (a paved car-free trail).

Audience meets at Cecelia Ravine Park, purchases a ticket and then rides, walks and scooters to 3 short shows at a time. One ticket is good for one day and all 12 shows. Shows are ten minutes duration each and a variety of genres are presented. Past festivals have included comedy, drama, puppetry, opera, dance and circus.

Special Friday night fundraiser event guarantees you see all 12 shows in a small crowd environment and includes a gourmet hot dog dinner. Only 48 feast tickets sold. (Season Ticket holders add this event for $20)

IMPORTANT NOTE: The festival runs from Noon to 6pm. The earlier you show up, the better your odds are of seeing all four tours and all 12 short shows. Show up after 5pm and you’ll only see one, maybe two, tours. We no longer issue weekend passes. Season Pass holders admitted free Saturday and Sunday. Single tickets on sale now at Ticket Rocket!

Ages 14 and under free
Rain or Shine, NO REFUNDS

Tickets: $15 regular or $40 Friday Feast + s/c
