festival

High school students are using theatre to keep the stories of abuse and perseverance at Bell High School alive at Ottawa’s Fringe Festival.

“The festival really started with a single goal: let’s celebrate womxn artists. As a group of local artists, this is something we’d all felt for a few years—that desire to celebrate and connect with other female (and) genderqueer artists.”—Monica Bradford-Lea.

Irving and his bandmates have gained a lot of experience touring since their 2012 performance at Bluesfest, and as much as he says they love the intimate shows that they have been performing at, Irving says that “nothing can match hordes of screaming fans.”
