Emerging Creators Unit Week 1 / The Rhubarb Festival says
Emerging Creators Unit: Bilal Baig & François Macdonald
February 17-18
in the Chamber

The Emerging Creators Unit offers an intensive opportunity for young artists to develop their artistic voice through the creation and performance of new work. Artists who receive training are paired with either a professional director or actors in preparation for a presentation of their work at the annual Rhubarb Festival.

Check out ECU participants Sofía Rodríguez and Teiya Kasahara on February 24-25: https://www.facebook.com/events/1835149276740894/


Khwaja Sera

Billo, a sex worker from the khwaja sera (third gender) community based in Heera Mandi, Lahore, Pakistan, and her estranged brother Arsalan have not spoken in 15 years. The very thing that still binds them together is also what haunts them.

In April 1975, the Aquarius bathhouse in downtown Montreal was firebombed, killing three patrons, two of whom were never identified or claimed. Aquarius tells the story of two men who met in the bathhouse that night.
