In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Chautauquas travelled across the prairies, bringing diverse cultural programming to rural communities. Lectures, concerts, performances and demonstrations gathered the citizens together under one big tent for delightful artistic exchanges. Theatre Projects Manitoba brings to life a modern Chautauqua this fall. A merry band of multidisciplinary artists will go on the road together for one month, conducting week long residencies in four Interlake locations.
We are excited to be treading new waters in the Interlake of Manitoba this season. For two years we have been scheming dozens of events, workshops and performances with hundreds of Manitobans who live beyond our perimeter. We are looking forward to learning from and creating with them. We invite you to join us on tour. Whether you are returning to your roots, or exploring a new frontier the Interlake will delight, and we know that this new kind of work will also be refreshing for our steadfast Winnipeg audiences. Our Chautauqua tour is open to all- urban and rural, old and young. We hope to see you on the road!
