For the week of Sept 27-Oct. 3, 2021.

Sept. 28-Oct. 9, 2021.


A terrific festival of theatre, film, documentaries, and dance taking place in person and on-line in Kitchener, Ont. The offerings are locally from Kitchern/Waterloo, nationally across Canada, and internationally from Chile, Tunisia, Australia and India. I have found the theatre on offer the first time I attended this festival in person before the pandemic, was bracing, challenging, fascinating and a welcome addition to theatre going. Wonderful work in the past. Looking forward to this year.
