A series of site-specific vignettes performed in the landscape, Trespassers Waltz aims to evoke the tensions of isolation and trespass which are so prevalent in Saskatchewan. As audiences walk a 5km looped trail, they’ll experience humorous, poignant, and tender conciliations with land, wherein acts of leading and following will become reciprocal ways to reckon with our own trespasses.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
The event is outdoors on the walking trails. Audience members can expect to encounter numerous artists and artistic responses as they journey the length of a trail. We anticipate that Trespassers Waltz will evoke the tensions of isolation and trespass which are so prevalent in Saskatchewan. This alternative approach to performance allows us to explore the land while maintaining social distance. It is a response to the present moment.

WHEN & WHERE
Date & Time:
HOW LONG IS THE EVENT?
We anticipate it will take approximately 2 hours to journey the trail while encountering the work. The trail is just under 5km in length – a similar length to the path around Wascana Lake. There will be some light refreshment offered at the end of your trail walk. We expect the sun to go down around 7pm that day.
Parking is available at the trailhead. Please watch for parking attendants. If you know others attending the work and it is safe for you to carpool, please do so.
WHERE IS THE EVENT?
The event is taking place at White Butte Recreation Trail Site. Please see map.
HOW DO I GET TO WHITE BUTTE?
• From north Regina: Head east on Highway 46, which is accessible from north Winnipeg, McDonald or Fleet Streets. Drive 13.1 km east of Fleet St to the Franks Lake Road, where there is a Cross-Country Skier sign. Turn right and drive south 1.6km, crossing the CPR main line tracks. The White Butte Trails trailhead is on your right, but you will see only the back of the large trail sign.
• From south Regina: Head east on #1 Highway 14.4 km from the Ring Road to the intersection of Hwy #48 on the eastern edge of White City. Cross #1, via the new overpass, to the north service road. Turn west for 600 metres, then north for 3.2 km until you see the White Butte Trails sign on your left. Watch for the Cross-Country Skier signs to direct you at each turn.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
The event is outdoors and will go ahead except in cases of extreme bad weather. Please check the forecast for White Butte on the day of the event and come prepared so that you are comfortable (wear layers of warm clothing, sturdy walking shoes, a scarf, toque may be helpful). Since our event will be ending at dusk, you may even want to bring a flashlight or headlamp. It’s also a good idea to pack yourself a water bottle or snack, some hand sanitizer, and a non-medical mask. Masks will also be available at the site should you choose to wear one (these are not mandatory).
