A marriage of the equestrian arts, stage arts, beautiful and high-tech theatrical effects, Odysseo is the world’s largest touring big top and has the biggest stage and the greatest number of horses at liberty, with 70 horses of 14 different breeds in total and 45 performers (aerialists, acrobats, riders, dancers, and musicians).
The creators of this new ode to the horse made the decision to indulge their wildest artistic ambitions. Odysseo pushes the limits of live entertainment with this grandiose multi-dimensional show featuring gravity-defying acrobatic and aerial stunts, breathtaking scenery and high-definition graphic images projected on a cyclorama the size of three IMAX screens.

Once again Backwoods Players is delighted to present a dessert theatre: guests will be treated to delicious sweets, tea and coffee and then swept away into J.M. Barrie's bittersweet play The Old Lady Shows Her Medals.
As part of the PMV's ongoing commemoration of World War 1, Backwoods honours both the veterans of that war and those on the home front. In this WW1 era play, Mrs. Dowey is entertaining three friends who boast proudly of their sons' prowess at the front.
Mrs. Dowey, who is childless but wants to share in their glory, pretends to have a son named Kenneth and when the curate arrives with a stray soldier named, coincidentally, Kenneth Dowey, the complications begin. The play will be presented at Brougham Hall.
A party photo goes viral. An investigation of accountability in our social media world.
Three young people are swept up in a social media maelstrom as a picture from a party goes viral.

This play investigates the unexpected consequences of choices made in a social media context.

Some may be surprised to know that reggae music actually has deep roots in jazz. Pianist Monty Alexander has been bringing jazz back to reggae music (and vice versa) for decades, and with Harlem-Kingston Express he explores the connections between traditional reggae and straight-ahead jazz, while also forging new ones. Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, Monty Alexander shot to fame when Sinatra first heard him in a tiny club.
