Stranger To Hard Work
Early Announcements For Rodeo 2017!
As Spring begins to blossom, January may seem like a long way off... but we've been hard at work putting together the 31st edition of the High Performance Rodeo, and we're ready to announce a few of the exciting shows for 2017!
In Stranger To Hard Work, co-presented with Alberta Theatre Projects, comedienne and cultural icon Cathy Jones (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, CODCO) returns to the stage with her third one woman show. In this new show Cathy shares her unique perspective on a variety of topics from food to money and the troublesome people in her life.
Black Arm Band's dirtsong, co-presented with Arts Commons Presents as part of BD&P World Music, takes audiences on a journey through Australia’s cultural heartland. This Australian Aboriginal collective uses traditional instruments, film, dance, and 11 languages to shed light on Indigenous issues worldwide and tell stories of endurance, challenge, unity, and the triumph of the spirit.
6 Guitars, co-presented with Lunchbox Theatre, is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes 6 different guitar players each with their own distinct voice, views, and musical style (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk, and Country).
Stay tuned for more festival announcements in the weeks and months to come...
