Arts & Performing Arts Culture, Heritage & Arts

You know that feeling that makes your heart swell when the orchestra hits a sweet, sad note? Or when contemplating an artistic masterpiece, the humbling sense that you’re in the presence of greatness? Or the terror you feel for the protagonist being stalked onstage? Savour these deliciously extreme emotions when you immerse yourself in the local arts and performing arts scene. Exhibitions and live performances are richly diverse, from contemporary to timeless classics, at indoor and outdoor venues alike. Browse the art galleries and studios, take in a play or spend the evening at the symphony, the opera or the ballet. The artist in you will rejoice.

Reviews

Having scored a drawer-full of international awards, Rapid Fire Theatre has been dishing out guffaws for more than three decades in the form of high-energy improvisation, collaborations, theatre for young audiences, full-length plays and comedy workshops. Rapid Fire performs two weekly shows at Zeidler Hall, Theatresports – a hilarious comic competition complete with judges – and CHiMPROV, long form improvisation. They’re also at the helm of a flurry of funny-bone fests including BONFIRE , The Wildfire Festival for gutsy high school students and Canada’s biggest improv comedy celebration, the annual international 10-day Improvaganza.
