About This Event

East Vancouver’s rEvolver Festival, now in its seventh year of presenting innovative, interdisciplinary productions from diverse voices in the Canadian live performance community, will run Wednesday, May 22 to Sunday, June 2, 2019 centred at The Cultch.

The 12-day festival will focus on presenting new works—critical, comedic and quirky—by emerging to early mid-career artists. With nine main stage productions in its line-up, the festival also includes three site-specific experiences and three companion events.Featuring an eclectic collection of artists and characters with productions and events that will make audiences think, laugh, delight, and at times cringe—and provide a platform for reflections on contemporary concerns.

This year, rEvolver Fest offers an exclusive Magnetic North Pass which gives Magnetic North Passholders access to 6 select shows for only $60.
