Apt613 reviews five shows on opening weekend of Fresh Meat 8. Five new shows run next weekend, October 17–19.
Fresh Meat 8 is a feast of experimental theatre, comedy and performance art—10.10.19 to 10.19.19 at Arts Court
It’s a feast of short plays, and ideas for plays, and this year the festival is opening over Thanksgiving weekend at Arts Court.
A show which earned tons of buzz at the Ottawa Fringe Festival is being remounted for two nights.
The juried prize is for the best anglophone and francophone theatre performed in Ottawa.
Brenda Dunn: “This one’s selling out due to much deserved buzz.”
Eric Coates: “New work will only thrive as long as we celebrate the impulse to create it.”
Now a mainstay in the Ottawa theatre season, Fresh Meat has presented more than 50 world premieres of short plays. Fresh Meat 6 runs for two weekends from October 12–21 at the Arts Court Studio.
