Winter Journey: A Fundraiser for Shelter Nova Scotia
To help you warm up from the cold, the Bus Stop Theatre Cooperative & Workshirt Opera are hosting three evenings of new solo performances from 24 local artists.
For this event, the 24 artists have taken inspiration from the music of Franz Schubert’s Winterreise (Winter Journey) and accompanying poems by Wilhelm Müller to create original short solo performances. Each artist has been randomly assigned another artist to create for, resulting in a collaborative theatrical reimagining of Schubert’s famous musical work.
Proceeds from this event will go to Shelter Nova Scotia, a local organization "dedicated to ending homelessness one person at a time and helping men and women transition from prison life to community living."
3 evenings 8 performances nightly at 8pm 24 original works $15 / evening $40 / journey
Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at The Coast, Halifax's Weekly, 2309 Maynard St., from Mon-Fri 9-5
