All That Binds Us

Setsun, Kamar, Shams, Mands, and Maria look like the quintessential faces of a diversity and inclusion poster. It's Canada Day and they're going to the club. But things aren't exactly as they seem...and who is this Kit guy? All That Binds Us is a live/live-streamed devised theatrical piece that weaves through time and space exploring the stories that bring individuals together into a complex and ever-shifting globalized community. At its heart, All That Binds Us is a contemplation of place, belonging, and an attempt to manifest cohesion in an increasingly fragmented world. All That Binds Us: Created by Reneltta Arluk, Makram Ayache, Lebogang Disele, Jenna Rodgers, and Amena Shehab with thanks to Sissy Thiessen Kootenayoo, Barry Bilinsky, Tai Amy Grauman, Nadien Chu, and Sheldon Elter. Direction: Reneltta Arluk*Dramaturgy and Assistant Direction: Jenna Rodgers Script Weaving: Makram AyacheStage Management: Kennedy Greene*Performance: Makram Ayache, Amena Shehab, Lebogang Disele, Nadien Chu*, Sheldon Elter*, and Tai Amy Grauman. Set, Costume, and Lighting Design: Elise CM JasonSound and Video Design: Effy AdarChoreography: Richard Lee Hsi*Production Management: Chris KavanaghAssistant Set, Costume, and Lighting Design: Even Gilchrist Video and Sound Design Mentorship: Kalli Melenius of Freebird EntertainmentVideo and Sound Design Programmer/Facilitator: Selina Painchaud *The participation of these Artists are arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association under the provisions of the Dance•Opera•Theatre Policy.

Best of the Fest

Like its name suggests, these are the best performers appearing at this year’s Edmonton Comedy Festival all wrangled onto one stage for one unforgettably hilarious show. Headlined by our Producer Andrew Grose and hosted by the wickedly funny and equally inappropriate Mike Dambra, this show features all of our main stage headliners including Kelowna’s Tim Nutt, Toronto’s Frank Spadone, Toronto’s Casey Corbin and Toronto’s Dave Hemstad. We guarantee that these incredible performers have never, and will never again, appear on one stage at one time anywhere in the world. This is our 2020 “must see” show.

The Other Best of the Fest

There’s too many great comedians to fit them all on one show so this is the other best of the fest show!
