The 40th Rhubarb Festival
February 20 @ 8:00 pm - March 2 @ 8:00 pm EST
An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 24, 2019
Canada’s longest-running new works festival returns for a 40th year. Rhubarb transforms Buddies into a hotbed of experimentation, with artists exploring new possibilities in theatre, dance, music, and performance art. Rhubarb is the place to see the most adventurous ideas in performance and to catch your favourite artists venturing into uncharted territory.
Rhubarb is a space for artists and audiences to experiment together by trying new things and testing their boundaries. Starting at 8pm (and sometimes earlier), there are shows happening in both spaces at Buddies (the Cabaret and the Chamber), so when you arrive at the theatre pick the show you want to see first, and 30 minutes later when it’s done you can either stay where you are or move to the other space for your next performance. There is a different set of shows each week – so keep coming back.
Featuring new works and special presentations by Erum Khan & Tijiki Morris, Hanlon McGregor & Syrus Marcus Ware, Mx Katie Sly, Makram Ayache, Femmes du Feu’s Holly Treddenick, and Rhiannon Collett.
