Arts Revelstoke is proud to present a fabulous winter season of live shows and movies at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre, which is back to full capacity for 2022!
REVY.Live kicks off in January with a hilarious fringe show, a rapid fire, inventive re-telling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet all the way from France and performed in French. So brush up on your francais, or bring your teenager who is studying French, and experience something completely out of the ordinary.
Our Movies in the Mountains Season launches on the last Wednesday of January presenting the film The Alpinist which follows the journey of Marc-André Leclerc, a young Canadian visionary climber who blazed his own trail on rock and ice.
In February we take a moment to explore our bodies, offering a Talking and Dancing Workshop with ground-breaking BC artists. This workshop welcomes all abilities and is open to anyone whoidentifies as female. This workshop will focus on celebrating our bodies through sensation, curiosity and pleasure and lean away from ideas which can damage our body image. The next day on Saturday Feb 5, Tara Cheyenne will perform her one woman show Body Parts. The audience will be seated on stage for a special, intimate experience. The show is part stand-up, part Greek Tragedy, part performance and part contemporary dance.
Red Sky Performance, the top indigenous performance company touring Canada today, will also perform in February on Thursday the 17th. Trace is an impressive show, with stunning projections, live music, multiple dancers and outstanding costumes. We are honoured to present this highly kinetic contemporary dance work inspired by Anishinaabe sky and star stories, offering a glimpse into our origin as well as our future evolution.
Rounding out February is CODA, a feel-good movie about a young woman who is the child of deaf parents (CODA). With a passion for music we watch as Ruby navigates how to balance her family responsibilities with pursuing her own dreams.
March is a busy month at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre. We are very excited to present Kalabante as part of our Family Series, this will be the biggest and most impressive circus Revelstoke has ever seen. With a huge cast from Quebec and Africa, Afrique En Cirque, features daring acrobatics and original choreography accompanied by live djembe drumming capturing the strength, agility and joy found in the lives of African youth.
Also in March Arts Revelstoke is excited to roll out our baby grand piano for a classical performance by Cheng2 Duo. Siblings Bryan and Silvie Cheng are a dynamic duo on cello and piano who will present a dazzling program ranging from baroque chamber to contemporary arrangements. Rounding out March we have the Slocan Ramblers, a Canadian favourite on the folk and bluegrass circuit.
Our final Movies in the Mountains film Beans will screen on Wednesday March 23. Beans tells the story of the OKA crisis through the eyes of a young Mohawk girl whose life is drastically altered by this historic Canadian stand-off.
Fred Penner is the perfect way to end this exciting season of shows. Performing music for more than 40 years, Fred Penner is a Canadian institution. Ticket prices have been capped for this show so it is affordable for families, so grab your kids and come and enjoy this timeless performance.
This winter the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre is back to full capacity and audience safety remains paramount. We require all our audience aged 12 and up to be double vaccinated and will be scanning vaccine passports and checking government issued ID outside the venue. Tickets will be scanned inside the venue, social distancing is encouraged, mask wearing is in place and intervals will be minimized to discourage movement around the facility.
