Ignite! Festival

May 17

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until May 19, 2018


Ignite! is an eclectic festival, programmed and curated entirely by members of the Youth Panel at the Cultch. It features theatre performers, dancers, and visual artists —all aged 11-26— as well as participants in the Cultch mentorship programs.

In its 19th year, this year’s festival will be headlined by a May 8 performance of The Chemical Valley Project from Broadleaf Theatre (Toronto) — a co-presentation with Intrepid Theatre’s UNO Festival.

The festival also includes the production of two new one act plays by local youth playwrights. In addition, each of the main festival nights offer a diverse spread of performances in a variety-show style under a theme; from Avocado Toast to Floral Friday. Performances this year include spoken word, contortion, live music, short plays, and original contemporary dance, among many others.
