Confederation Centre Reopens to the Public

– LIVE @ the Centre programming to return this month –

February 9, 2022 – Confederation Centre of the Arts is open to the public, and resuming regular operating hours. This follows the latest guidance and updates from the Chief Public Health Office (CPHO).

LIVE @ the Centre will return to the stage February 24 with a performance from Haitian-Canadian artist Wesli. The JUNO Award-winning multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter fuses afrobeat, reggae, and Haitian rara into a rich and energetic sound. Wesli and his band will deliver a festive and uniquely engaging performance at The Mack. 

Hitting the mainstage on March 2 is Ballet Kelowna: MAMBO and Other Works. Performed by one of British Columbia’s top ballet companies, this eclectic production features a meticulous blend of contemporary and neoclassical works by Canada’s leading dance makers. The high-energy program will include: the thrilling tango-inspired Cuatro Estaciones, the mesmerizing Bolero, and vivacious audience favourite MAMBO.

“It has been a few years since the Centre has hosted a large professional dance company like Ballet Kelowna,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre. “These are two great shows to restart our season, and we are thrilled to welcome people back into our space.”

The following changes have been made to the LIVE @ the Centre lineup:

Ensemble ALKEMIA – February 11 – CANCELLED
David Myles – February 13 – POSTPONED (new date TBA)
Jah’Mila – February 19 – POSTPONED (new date TBA)

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
