Wednesday 26 October 6:30PM – 8:00PM; Niagara Artists Centre, 354 St. Paul Street, St. Catharines L2R 3N2

WHY: In 2003, Brock University entered into an agreement to purchase the Rodman Hall Art Centre assets from a community organization and to maintain these assets until 2023. Now, Brock University is looking at other options for the future of the RHAC. It is trying to explore a community-based option for the Centre with a not-for-profit ownership model.

Outrageous wearable imaginings
Sublime electro-sonic exploits
Kinetically-charged choreographic wonders
Sensational visual tableaus of ‘Je-ne-know-what-the-heck?’
Formidably phunny farceurs!

A cavalcade of talent has been invited to amaze and astonish audiences in novel ways. Ringmaster of Ceremonies Bruce McCulloch—­everyone’s favourite Kid in the Hall—will orchestrate the riot of WTFery from centre stage. Canada’s representative at the 55th Venice Biennale, Shary Boyle will transform Partridge Hall with beguiling projections and an exhilarating set design. On stage, the action of dancers and acrobats dressed in one-of-a-kind wearable art creations from the bizarre to the sublime will be propelled by a reconstituted Shadowy Men on Shadowy Planet, often called the Best Canadian Instrumental Band of All Time. The show is directed by Suitcase in Point’s Artistic Director Deanna Jones.
