Performing Arts Festival
DEPTH Perception Productions and Bears With Knives Productions are proud to bring you 3 evenings of performing arts dedicated to opening up the conversations about mental health. The Living With Festival will showcase a variety of performances including theatre, dance, spoken word, and music that will focus on mental health, its impact and the many different ways we all cope. The festival is a platform for artists to share their experiences, stories and help break the stigma surrounding mental health.
THURSDAY NIGHT brings Well Fuck Me Very Much written by Rebecca Bissonnette AND 5 South written by Rebecca Merkley.
FRIDAY NIGHT brings A Little Happiness written by Ramona Baillie AND Ordinary People written by Nancy Gilsenan.
SATURDAY NIGHT brings a cabaret of song, dance and speech featuring Erin McLean, Rebecca Bissonnette, David Son, Anna Pratch and many more.
Arts are a major form of expression, often saying things we don't know how to say, in ways we would never think of. Allow the arts to tell you stories, while raising awareness and funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association. Join us for 1, 2 or all 3 nights as we open up, support one another and remember that we're not alone.
