Three Lectures on The North

Campaign Ended March 1, 2016

Help us gear up for Three Lectures on the North!

Rough House produces a new theatre work every leap year so because it’s 2016- and the kids are now in school- we have teamed up with our friends at Theatre Replacement to co-produce Three Lectures on the North.

A playful look into the form of the public lecture, we have commissioned three speeches on the subject of Canada’s North, a region many of us use to define our country but few have actually experienced. The speeches are interwoven together and partnered with instructions for how they should be delivered- which are then relayed to three actors who will perform them in front of an audience for the first and only time. Each show will be a brand new encounter for the people both on and off the stage.

Three Lectures on the North is to be presented by our partners at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in May 2016. But we need your help in gearing up for this production. We need to raise $2,000 in order to update Rough House’s sound and video equipment for a fully-realized production of Three Lectures on the North. Your support will allow us to invest in 3 GoPro cameras, which will not only be worn by three actors in Three Lectures on the North but can also be utilized for future productions by Rough House; and by companies and colleagues in the arts community.

Your donation of:
$25.00 - Will grant you a Tax Receipt and a big shout out on social media, our website and in our program.  
$50.00 - Will grant you all of the above plus a special invitation to a performance for an invited audience.
$100.00 -Will grant you all of the above plus two free tickets to Three Lectures on the North.
$250.00 - Will grant you all of the above plus two free tickets to the opening night of Three Lectures on the North. 

Any amount is helpful. And if you can’t assist us financially, please share this link! Through Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and word of mouth, you can help us reach our leap year goal! The campaign ends on- yeah, you got it- Feb 29, 2016.
