Dance

  • When dystopia becomes reality

    A modern classic with increasingly relevant dystopian themes will soon return to the Centennial Concert Hall.

  • Greater than the sum of its arts

    Should you wander near Provencher during the night of cultured revelry that is Nuit Blanche, you may find yourself in an ethereal space where the boundaries between art and aesthete are blurred.

  • A retro big top throwback

  • Local queer spaces (re)open their doors

    For several months, public-health restrictions compromised the existence of a handful of 2SLGBTQIA+ spaces in Winnipeg. Some chose to pivot virtually, while others were more or less forced to shut their doors indefinitely.

  • Stepping into the forgotten world of live events

    My entire life has always revolved around the arts. As a singer, I love seeing concerts, orchestral performances and open-mic nights. As an actor, I love watching plays, musicals and improv. As a visual artist, I enjoy attending gallery openings, art shows and just generally being around talent and art.

  • A spirited conversation

    It’s a Winnipeg tradition that on the first Friday of the month, art enthusiasts of all stripes gather in the historic Exchange District to pop into warehouse studios, drink merlot from plastic chalices and converse about local artworks. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted First Fridays in the Exchange, local art-markers continue to find ways to (virtually) bring the joy of art to the public.

  • Dancing through change

    On Oct. 22, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers (WCD) Emerging Artist Initiative returns with a new show. Program choreographer Jolene Bailie processes the feelings and experiences of this past year and transforms them through artistic expression into dance.
