What’s Up Next in 2019

2019
Join us for another incredible year of life-changing theatre! We have some exciting events in store for 2019 and can’t wait to get started. Here’s our Top 4 Things we’re looking forward to in the New Year.

        1. COMMUNITY DIALOGUE – Queering Theatre Round-Table

We’ll be kicking off 2019 with our Queering Theatre round-table, facilitated by Erin Meagan Schwartz! Representatives from Winnipeg’s performing arts and LGBT community will speak to their experiences of incorporating their identities into their work, as well as their experiences as a queer artist in the community. Keep your eyes peeled on social media as we announce more on the exciting workshops and opportunities we have coming up for emerging artists!

2. STANDING PROUD 

Here I am banner draft Dec 25_18Up and running since 2003, this event shares the stories of incredible women! This year’s theme is Here I Am, focused on stories of embracing identity and coming into one’s own. Our line-up will feature stories like an aspiring astronaut fighting to be taken seriously, a teenager coming out to her family (and the local priest!) over brunch, and the “elephant in the room” of life with a chronic illness. Check out our website for the full line-up!

3. MORE COMMUNITY COLLABORATION

Starting in January, we’ll begin work on our next full production focused on the theme of reconciliation. Indigenous artists will work with youth, Knowledge Keepers, and Elders. This year will see the first phase of the project as we begin workshops and interviews, gathering stories and feedback from the community that will shape the production. Check out this post for more info!

4. FEMFEST SHAKES THINGS UP FOR ITS 17TH YEAR!

This September will mark our 17th annual festival of life-changing theatre for everyone! Our theme is All the World’s a Stage, focusing on global stories of powerful women. We’ll be focusing on making the festival more accessible to the community with exciting new programming. Stay tuned for full details in the spring.

With so much in store, you won’t want to miss a thing! Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to stay up-to-date on all the great events we have coming up in 2019.
