The Other Rodeo
Giddy-up Calgary. One Yellow Rabbit’s High Performance Rodeo starts today and goes to the end of the month with its parade of avante garde theatre, music and art shows that will shock and awe and make you glad you got out of the house this chilly January. Here are five performances to look for.
Masked Mexican wrestlers perform acrobatics in matches that pit good against evil. In between, burlesque performers take to the bullpen.
One Yellow Rabbit’s original theatre production brings a professor, a student and William Shakespeare together to learn about comedy, tragedy and human understanding.
Join a tour and follow acrobats, dancers and more as they perform on rooftops and in freight elevators around the Calgary Tower and the Epcor Centre.
French architect Charles Blanc and British artist Tristan Surtees replace two lights on Olympic Plaza with theatre lights giving passerbys get a chance to step into the light and perform.
The experimental performance artist takes a turn as artist-in-residence hosting a talk, dinner, multimedia art show and interactive tour of Cantos.
