2020 IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists: Hyperspace Edition, presented by Sage Theatre

Date: May 26, 2020

Deadline: Jun 13, 2020 - 11:45 pm

Space. The final frontier…a minimum of 2 metres between all humans.

The COVID-19 pandemic has rocked our worlds like shields at 10% in an asteroid belt. But we’re firing up thrusters and blasting outta here! Are you on-board?

You are invited to the 2020 IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists: Hyperspace Edition (presented by Sage Theatre).

The brave ship IGNITE!, her fearless captain, steadfast officers, and keen space cadets have determined there is no turning back. We may be spatially distanced, but like entangled particles, there is no severing our social and artistic connections. There are worlds to explore. Adventures to encounter. Together.

2020 IGNITE! will be presented via a festival-at-a-distance model. Our scanners indicate there are distant star systems that could be studied from afar in addition to non-embodied or even digital worlds. Join our science officers and space cadets on an uncharted mission of discovery! Houston, we have a festival!
Join us from June 10-13, 2020 online for a very special edition of Calgary's largest multi-disciplinary emerging artist festival. To see this year's line-up (Theatre, Improv, Dance, Provocation) and festival schedule visit the Sage Theatre website. Details on how to watch the stream - plus exciting programming announcements - are coming soon!
