Run time is approx. 30 minutes

Weathering and Waiting will premiere as part of the celebrations for the opening of the Canadian Canoe Museum‘s new waterfront site.

This inter-arts performance features a unique apparatus -the aerial canoe – taking audiences on an emotional journey, told with the spectacle of circus, theatre and music. Created and performed by Jennifer Elchuk (Opal), with circus artists Victoria Kopf, Jeff Cadence, original music by aquapher (Jared Bremner) and lighting design by Patricia Levert.

This 30min performance takes place outdoors. Please dress for the weather, and perhaps bring mosquito protection for evening performances. Some seating will be provided, but audiences are encourage to bring their own portable chair or blanket.

This is an excellent opportunity to tour the Canadian Canoe Museum before the show, however admission to the museum must be paid separately.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as EC3’s Grants for Individual Artists, The Peterborough Academy of Circus Arts, and Fuelled by Public Energy.
