7 Fingers: Traces

Thursday, April 24 @7:00pm

Performance-art derivates of Cirque du Soleil have become a staple of New York's downtown theatre scene, but the Montreal-based troupe 7 Fingers has created something special.  It's not just their amazing leaps, tumbles, balancing acts and stunts with bars, seesaws and skateboards.  It's the streetwise intimacy of their presentation and the way it pulls us in with the sense of danger.  At Cirque you sit in awe.  Here you're on the edge of your seat. - Time Magazine

"Incredible stuff that had all three judges on their feet." - America's Got Talent

"Eye-popping athleticism, fluid grace and chiseled physiques make for the sexiest circus in town" - New York Daily News

"SIMPLY STUNNING!" - Rolling Stone

Kaha:Wi Dance Theatre's "NeoIndigenA"

Friday, May 9 @8:00pm

NeoIndigenA is the much-anticipated full evening solo created and performed by Artistic Director Santee Smith. The new conceptual performance explores Indigenous sources from the perspective of an unbroken continuum. She navigates liminal space between the futuristic realms of Skyworld, Underworld and Earthworld. It's an ecstatic, transcendent, primordial, perilous and biomorphic journey propelled by the elemental voice of Tanya Tagaq, Cris Derksen's cello and others.

A Pay-What-You-Can Performance

"Kaha:wi succeeds because it walks the fine line between a genuine spiritual experience that is also ravishing in its visual components." ~ Paula Citron, The Globe & Mail

Laila Biali

Thursday, June 19 @8:00pm

Juno Award-winning Canadian jazz pianist, vocalist and songwriter Laila Biali has toured with Suzanne Vega, Chris Botti and Paula Cole and recorded with and supported Sting. The Oakville Jazz Festival veteran takes the best of pop, rock and soul, informs it with her knowledge of jazz and weaves it into her musical arrangements

"It is the ultimate task given to the musician, whether as singer or instrumentalist, to create a unique signature or fingerprint that is instantly recognisable as their own. What is surprising and delightful in Laila Biali is that both as vocalist and pianist she accomplishes this with equal aplomb. She is an exciting and unique talent, and I admire her greatly." - Sting

"Biali has a voice that makes the listener shudder; it is so rounded and pure." - Montreal Gazette

Jim Belushi & The Board of Comedy

NEW DATE: Friday June 20 @ 8pm

Please Note: this show has been rescheduled. It will now take place on Friday June 20, 2014.

"We are not stand-up comedians. Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience - we get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on-stage with us to add to our performance. It's less a 'show' and more a party. At least it feels like one to me. This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy - maybe that's why we have so much fun doing it." - Jim Belushi

With more than thirty years of experience and an alumnus of "Saturday Night Live" and Chicago's famed Second City, JIM BELUSHI is now bringing to the stage an improvised comedy sketch show featuring members of the Board of Comedy.

Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy "According to Jim," on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director. After wrapping 182 episodes for its eighth and final season, the family favorite series also hit a milestone when it launched into off-net syndication in 2007. A favorite of film, television and stage audiences, Belushi is one of the great leading character actors equally at home in drama and comedy, and a gifted performer who can also hold a room as front man of a rhythm and blues band. Accompanying Belushi are Megan Grano, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad Morris, and Joshua Funk*, all of whom are classically trained professional improvisers who tour regularly nationwide.

*Supporting cast may be subject to availability
