(Un)draped is an abstract, sculptural, and often sensual dance and visual arts collaboration that explores loneliness, exhibitionism, and despair. Vacillating between persistent aloneness and overt intimacy through movement either frenetic or achingly slow, the two pieces in this show ask the audience to choose whether to view them through the studious gaze of an artist or the eyes of a voyeur.

Gruppo Rubato returns to the Fringe for the first time in 15 years with a new political satire!

As he debates whether or not to seek re-election, the Mayor is looking to secure his legacy – but his signature project, the UpTown Entertainment District, is going bust. Meanwhile, he’s being sued by a group of citizens for his actions on Twitter, and trying to get an important council vote to go his way, all while protesters camp out in front of his office. Oh, and now there’s a sinkhole… but at least the trains run on time!

Written and directed by Patrick Gauthier, and featuring Ottawa all-stars Maryse Fernandes, Victoria Luloff, Mitchel Rose, and Will Somers.
