“At once mesmerizing and deeply moving, Robert Lepage’s spectacular 887 is one of this country’s greatest solo stage works, created and performed by one of our greatest storytellers. From his childhood in 1960s Quebec City, Lepage charts the social and political moments that shaped both our country and his identity. An unforgettable theatrical experience told with cinematic flair and stunning design, 887 is a must-see Canadian masterpiece.”

A musical evening with Turkwaz to celebrate the 40th anniversary of EMYS

We are pleased to be holding a musical event featuring Turkwaz in the evening on Saturday, June 8.

“Turkwaz are a revelation – whether they are making you dance or making you long for loves lost, the music is of the highest calibre, played deftly and with spirit and joy. Though the songs are in languages I don’t speak, the artistry of the band members is such that the sense of the lyrics come through. What a performance!” Candace Shaw, Shelter Valley Festival
