High Performance Rodeo Is Here!

Welcome.

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.

Blake Brooker C.M.
Artistic Director

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!
