2The Canada Show: The Complete History of Canada in One Hour
From the sublime to the ridiculous, The Canada Show (May 31-Jun 2) gets a head start on this year’s Canada 150 celebrations as three comedic historians try to jam 15,000 years of Canadian history into just one hour.
Vortex Théâtre’s Anonyme (Jun 1-4) is verbatim theatre composed of vignettes dealing in our collective relationship to technology. Presented in both English and French at specific performances, the show is inspired by our online consumption and the speed with which we move from one virtual and/or real space to another.
