Chautauqua – The Interlake Trail

Theatre Projects Manitoba is hitting the road again- with our second version of The Chautauqua! 

In 2018, a merry band of artists began creating and traveling in Manitoba’s beloved Interlake region- building relationships, creating art and eventually setting out on a four week tour- living in residence in the community and hosting over 150 events in less than a month!

We return to our friends in the region between Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg with the Interlake Trail- exploring the highways and hidden pathways that connect both urban and rural citizens. A team of ten artists will spend the winter/spring months creating new art projects inspired by the region’s stories and in collaboration with its citizens. These projects will be premiered both in person (as we are able), and digitally throughout the Interlake region in June 2021 when we anticipate week long residencies in Eriksdale, Arborg, Riverton and Selkirk and their neighbouring communities.

The team is interdisciplinary and the projects run the gamut of craft, theatre, music, murals and skate board jams. 

Get involved by attending a Winter Warm Up Workshop today!
