Theatre in the Bush @ Canada Scene - Ottawa

July 20-22, 2017


Mackenzie King Estate

Ottawa, ON


Traditionally set deep in the northern forest, Theatre in the Bush is an annual Whitehorse summer sell-out that takes the ritual and mad magic of a bush party and distils it into an interactive theatre event. Audience members are led through the woods at dusk to a remote location where innovative Yukon artists present playful, daring creations with a healthy dose of folksy northern charm. Some artists come with an idea, and others let the environment influence what they create. It’s a celebration, a meeting place, and a taste of Yukon theatre, music, and food all rolled into one.

This year, Ramshackle is taking Theatre in the Bush to Ottawa and Open Pit Theatre is coming along for the ride.  Geneviève Doyon and Alistair Maitland will be reworking and performing a piece currently called Untitled.  

Hosted by The National Arts Centre, it is sure to be a magical and playful event featuring:
