On Wednesday, June 20th you’re invited to the launch of Theatre Projects Manitoba’s new, enormous project: This Land Floods, an Interlake Chautauqua Tour.
Starting in October, 2018 Theatre Projects will embark on a one month tour of Manitoba’s beloved Interlake region, stopping for a one week residency in each of the following towns (and surrounding municipalities): Steep Rock, Eriksdale, Arborg and Teulon. We will bring with us a beautiful production, and a caravan of artists- musicians, writers, performers who will collaborate with the Interlake citizens on workshops, cabarets, creative projects, performances and more!
The culmination of two years of investigation, planning and roadtripping- This Land Flo...ods, an Interlake Chautauqua Tour is the new arm of Theatre Projects, refocusing some of our activities, creative processes and funding outside of Winnipeg’s perimeter.
Join us to hear about our plans, and help us raise the funds required to take theatre to the highways and waterways of the Interlake.
The Interlake Chautauqua Fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, June 20th, at the West End Cultural Centre and, fittingly, it’s Interlake themed! We’ll be bringing you music from the region by way of our musical guests: Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner (Red Moon Road), Sol James and Brad Moggie. We will also share poetry, and theatrical readings devised around our Interlake research featuring Tanner Manson, Chris Sousa, Sarah Jane Flynn and Emily Solstice. Plus we’ll share the stage with some real-life Interlakers!
Between acts you can enjoy the camaraderie and try your luck at our raffle for your chance to win art OR artistic experiences from the WAVE Artists (who wouldn’t love an art class on a boat!), plus specially-curated packages that could only come from the Interlake (vinaterta lessons, anyone?).
It will be a beautiful night to launch an ambitious and inspiring new project, a time for TPM’s Winnipeg and rural supporters to mingle, and an evening to celebrate one of the most well loved regions of our province, all in support of This Land Floods, an Interlake Chautauqua Tour.
We look forward to seeing you there!
