High Performance Rodeo Is Here!


High Performance Rodeo Addition #33: Wow. How time flies when you’re having fun! This year’s banquet of performances run an interesting track. Expect some thrills, some humour and all the feels in between.

We’re focusing on the joy of expression in this go ‘round. We have exhilaration and physical humour virtuosity from France in the form of Cow Love, all the way to Canadian superstar Shane Koyczans’s high performance spoken word.

Collaborations with Alberta Theatre Projects, Alberta Ballet, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and DJD, as always, bring elements of our performing arts community together to provide some heat in the depth of January’s deep freeze.  Our aim is to keep Calgary hot in mid-winter and to light up the dark nights with the best undeniable works from Calgary, Canada and beyond.

If this is your 33rd Rodeo, welcome back; and if it’s your first Rodeo, hold on tight, it’s going to be a wild ride! Whether you want to come to one show or buy a flex pass to multiple shows, come and say “Hi” at the Laycraft Lounge before or after the performance.

The Rodeo Team is always happy to raise a glass and share the fun with you.
