2. Red

Fairy Tales are timeless stories that hold no loyalties to any one place. They are tales of the world passed down through oral traditions and the written word. They teach us lessons, take us on journeys and provoke our imaginations to make the impossible come to life. Little Red Riding Hood is one such tale. Versions of the story about a girl and a wolf come from all areas of the world and the repertoire of stories continues to grow.

This year is a big milestone for the Winnipeg New Music Festival. This year we look both back and forward with three world premieres from our past composers-in-residence.

Through it all we will have conversation, art, food, music, and experiences that will challenge, stimulate and provoke. Join us!

2. Bouffe

This high-energy, hilarious and interactive production from New Brunswick introduces us to Bazil and Mortadel, the endearing yet repulsive chefs who are preparing a feast for their audience. From one course to the next, they push the envelope to a place where ridiculous and disturbing meet. Bouffe is a culinary journey into the absurd where no one is safe. Eat or be eaten.

6. Misfit Blues

Love, Clowning and other Silly Antics. Although they’ve been around awhile, they view intimate relations as an equation with several unknowns, except that today there are no limitations to expressing their enthusiasms and their failings. They love each other, good or bad. They sound each other out, challenge each other, know how to manipulate one another. Thick as thieves, they also get bored, enjoy a good laugh, tread delicately between candour and cruelty. Under the ambiguous gaze of a coyote created by the Amerindian artist Edward Poitras, they present tender, perverse, hilarious characters – angelic tramps straight out of a Beckett play or burlesque cinema. Sublime misfits.
