SNEAK PEEK INTO THE 33RD #HPRODEO
COMING THIS JANUARY 2019

We are pleased to co-present with Alberta Theatre Projects, Café Daughter, January 15 – 27, 2019. 

Based on the true story of Senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck, Café Daughter is the powerful, funny and touching tale of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage.

In 1950’s small-town Saskatchewan, nine-year-old half-Chinese, half-Cree Yvette Wong struggles to find her in place in a small-minded community until an unexpected ally helps set her on a path that’s destined for greatness.

 Coming this January 2019 to the 33rd Annual High Performance Rodeo, Sansei: The Storyteller. Co-Presented with Lunchbox Theatre, Calgary’s Mark Ikeda explores that dark period in Canada’s history when Japanese Canadians were forced to live in labour and internment camps. This light-hearted examination uses dance, theatre & humour to weave this enduring tale.

THAT'S A WRAP ON THE 32ND ANNUAL HIGH PERFORMANCE RODEO!

 

We hope you enjoyed this year’s High Performance Rodeo! We brought you artistic works to entertain, inspire, challenge, and shock your wild side, and you took up the challenge.  

Use #HPRodeo and let us know what your favourite moments were.  Your feedback is invaluable to us.  We put this Rodeo on for you, Calgary!

Torquil Campbell Returns to the High Performance Rodeo in True Crime

Vertigo Theatre and One Yellow Rabbit are thrilled to announce:

The Castleton Massive Production in Association with Crow’s Theatre
True Crime
Created by Torquil Campbell and Chris Abraham in collaboration with Julian Brown
January 23–27, 2018

As part of the 32nd annual High Performance Rodeo, Calgary's International Festival of the Arts

Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison.  And iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size.  What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator?  And in the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art?  Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, True Crime is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.

Rodeo fans will recall that this show appeared as a work-in-development at the 2016 High Performance Rodeo titled, "The Rockefeller Project"

Tickets available Summer 2017
