THE WATERSHED | March 29 – April 1, 2017

Over 80% of Canadians live in urban areas. How are we supposed to commune with Water as we once did? The Watershed offers a space and a moment to do so, to refresh ourselves with the simple truth-we are water.

We read them. We listen to them. We watch them. The rest of us, create them. In some form or fashion, we all love stories.

March 16 through 19, the Festival of Animated Objects is returning for its eighth edition as it brings world-class artists together. Artists, such as Xstine Cook, Nikki Loach, WONDERHEADS Theatre and Heather Henson – the youngest of Jim and Jane Henson’s five children – will come together to story tell through another perspective-animated objects. With masks, puppetry, gadgets, gizmos and, most importantly, our imaginations, we’re promised to have our judgement overshadowed by our curiosity.
