Whether you’re checking out some local fall foliage, listening to live music, or watching the game (pick your sports, there are plenty of options this weekend) we’ve got your weekend plans covered.
Feist is at the National Arts Centre throughout the weekend, with an unconventional production with limited capacity. According to the NAC’s event page, the material was conceived during and in response to a pandemic period when stages had to remain empty and communal joy was interrupted. MULTITUDES offers a reclaiming of the stage to be performed surrounded by the audience. Enjoy an intimate performance of new material in an in-the-round performance experienced in custom 18-point D&B Soundscape immersive audio. Learn more about the show in our preview post and get your tickets online.
Fresh Meat is back! For almost a decade, this festival has served as the place of opportunity for local artists and theatre-makers—both new and experienced alike—to show off their talent and try out new ideas. There are 12 different shows running through the weekends of Oct. 14-16 and Oct. 21-23, with the choice to book advanced tickets for one of 10 in-person performances at the Arts Court Studio or one of two livestreamed events. Learn more here.
