1997 / 1998 Season

Life During WartimeOur 97/98 season saw the premiere of two bold new works! At the 1998 Women In View Festival Life During Wartime took audiences by storm. This ferocious dance/theatre piece focussed on subtle misogyny in polite society and was praised for its unapologetic and biting sense of satire. Later in the spring. Ruby Slippers premiered The Ruby Cabaret at The Vancouver East Cultural Centre. This potent collaboration with jazz ensemble Talking Pictures resulted in fourteen original songs, thirty vignettes. and many letters to the editor. Just what a successful cabaret should do.
