10866177_10100337027078056_7121210698390973102_o (350x350)Ballet Étoile presents a compelling portrayal of the most powerful and notorious woman of the ancient world. A legend even in her own time, Cleopatra’s legacy is timeless. A woman of great courage and intelligence Cleopatra is a loving mother, a powerful warrior Queen, and a living Goddess. Exiled by her own brother at the age of eighteen, she returns to Egypt to take control of her throne and continues in her rapid rise to power, fighting for both her children and her Empire. She risks everything in her strategic political alliances, and scandalous love affairs with Julius Caesar and Marc Antony, and pays the ultimate price for following her heart. Fighting for a voice in a world ruled by men, Cleopatra stands alone as a courageous, intelligent leader, who dared to take on the Roman Empire, and for a brief moment held the fate of the Western world in her hands.

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

If We Were Birds

If We Were Birds by Erin Shields  
Theatre Inconnu       Sept 29 – Oct 17

IF-WE-WERE-BIRDS-300x175This recent play, by one of Canada’s most accomplished young playwrights, was a Governor General Award winner. If We Were Birds – based upon the ancient Greek myth by Ovid – tells the story of King Tereus and represents a harrowing exploration of violence and revenge, focusing upon the treatment and suffering of women in times of conflict, with contemporary references to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda, Bangladesh, Nanking, and Berlin. The style of writing is a powerful mixture of classical and modern, tied together by a superior poetical skill.

Spit Delaney’s Island

Spit Delaney’s Island
by Charles Tidler, based on the short story by Jack Hodgins Theatre Inconnu       Dec 1 – Dec 19

SPIT-DELANEY-300x175Local internationally lauded writer Hodgins’ original book of short stories of the same name won the Eaton’s Book Prize and was nominated for the Governor General’s Award. Charles Tidler is a local playwright, novelist, and poet of international renown. Both writers are eager to work with Theatre Inconnu on further adapting this script, which was originally produced in the early 1990s’. Spit Delaney is a steam locomotive operator whose skills are no longer needed. His loss of identity is touchingly and humourously portrayed through encounters with characters who are both real and mystical.

“Jack Hodgins has done for the people of Vancouver Island what… Faulkner did for the American South. He has burned them into the national consciousness.” The Gazette (Montreal)
