Festival of New Dance & Performance by Peterborough-Area Artists
Celebrating 20 years! Join us at the Market Hall, Theatre on King and outdoor locations
throughout downtown Peterborough.

The Emergency Festival (named for its commitment to emerging work by up-and-coming and veteran artists alike) showcases the most inventive, engaging - and at times outrageous - new performances created by Peterborough area artists working in all performance fields.

Expect some special treats to celebrate our 20th edition, including: two Alley Waltzes, which put performances in downtown streets and alleys, and one full-length work - The Nervous System’s
Terror and Erebus, which will take place next to and within the Otonabee River.
