THE INTERLAKE CHAUTAUQUA FUNDRAISER!
We’ve moved our Fundraiser to June 20th, 2018 – JOIN US!
The Interlake Chautauqua Fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, June 20th, at the West End Cultural Centre, and, fittingly, it’s Interlake themed! We’ll be bringing you music from the region by way of our musical guests: Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner (Red Moon Road), Sol James and fiddling sensation Brad Moggie. We will also share poetry, and theatrical readings devised around our Interlake research. Plus we’ll share the stage with some real-life Interlakers!
Between acts you can enjoy the camaraderie and silent auction for your chance to win art OR artistic experiences from the WAVE Artists (who wouldn’t love an art class on a boat!), plus specially-curated packages that could only come from the Interlake. And bring your appetite! There will be delicious food from our friends at Feast Cafe!
It will be a beautiful night to launch our ambitious and inspiring new project: This Land Floods, an Interlake Chautauqua Tour, a time for TPM’s Winnipeg and rural supporters to mingle, and an evening to celebrate one of the most well loved regions of our province.
The culmination of two years of investigation, planning and roadtripping- This Land Floods, an Interlake Chautauqua Tour is the new arm of Theatre Projects, refocusing some of our activities and creative processes outside of Winnipeg’s perimeter.
Starting in October, 2018 TPM will embark on a one month tour of Manitoba’s beloved Interlake region, stopping for a one week residency in each of the following towns (and surrounding municipalities): Steep Rock, Eriksdale, Arborg and Teulon. We will bring with us a beautiful production, and a caravan of artists- musicians, writers, performers who will collaborate with the Interlake citizens on workshops, cabarets, creative projects, performances and more!
Join us to hear about our plans, and help us raise the funds required to take theatre to the highways and waterways of the Interlake!
Tickets are available right here, right now or by calling our office at 204-989-2400
We look forward to seeing you there!

After a whirlwind opening week and weekend of A Short History of Crazy Bone, we are just tickled by the lovely audiences and reviews we have received!
The Winnipeg Free Press’ Randall King comments on Nepinak’s performance:
“…thanks to a terrific performance by Tracey Nepinak, Crazy Bone emerges as a singular creation, an outlaw without an outlet, a poet without a publication, a painter without a canvas, a shaman without a tribe.”
Joff Schmidt at CBC praises the butoh-inspired movement woven into the piece:
“It’s a slow, measured and often unsettling style, which fits perfectly here as the restless spirits that surround Crazy Bone force her to confront her past.”
If you are still looking for tickets for, you can buy them online or by calling us at 204-989-2400. A reminder that our Students Night is coming up this Tuesday, April 3rd at 7pm.

A Short History of Crazy Bone – March 28 until April 8, 2018
It is a beautiful and difficult tale. It is a Manitoba story.
Theatre Projects Manitoba is delighted and honoured to invite you to the world premiere of A Short History of Crazy Bone, a performance that treads the line between poetry, dance and theatre.
Canadian poet Patrick Friesen’s new play awakens Crazy Bone who walks on the outskirts of time, imagination and place – shunned for her individuality, sexuality, and for the non-conventional choices she has made. Crazy Bone is traveling to the river, trying to find a way back to herself. The play, inspired by the playwright’s great grandmother, is an exploration of the nature of the outsider, crowded by others and acutely alone. Crazy is a trickster, a wild woman laughing, a campesino, the artist. The ghosts she lives – and sometimes dances with – are not past loved ones but present companions.
The questions inherent in the piece are of an artist’s place in society. At the heart of the play is the movement, the process, of Crazy finding where she belongs, a spiritual odyssey in deeply human form. It is also a poetic exploration of the prairie landscape, rooted in our province’s identity and history. The lead role of Crazy Bone will be played by actress Tracey Nepinak; one of Manitoba’s finest theatre artists, who will be supported by performers David Arial, Zorya Arrow, Arne MacPherson and Tracy Penner.
Tickets are available on this website, by calling us at 204-989-2400, and at the door.
