The heart of The Cultch, our original 200-seat theatre has been home to hundreds of local and international dance, music, and theatre performances over the past four decades. Our 2008 renovations transformed the beloved space into a state-of-the-art theatre while still retaining the memories of performances past.

In Nicolas Billon’s <em>Butcher</em>, an old man in a strange uniform is dropped off at a police station at 3 a.m. on Christmas Eve. He refuses to speak English, and has a meat hook dangling from his neck. Impaled on the hook is the business card of a local lawyer and the words “Arrest Me.” Haunted by events a world away, a victim confronts the perpetrator of a war crime in a struggle for truth. MORE

Lightning Dust is the musical project of Amber Webber and Joshua Wells. Webber’s unmistakable voice — at once vulnerable and powerfully self-assured — and Wells’ obsessively detailed production provide constant threads that connect music that otherwise thrives on the spirit of change.
