While you sit and enjoy a night at the theatre, what lurks in the dark tunnels beneath your chair? What creatures are hidden in the stairwells, or peering down at you from the rooftop?
Step into the shadows with Freak Show, a tour that explores the deepest recesses of the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts. Find yourself swept up in a boiler room sideshow, or encounter bizarre dancers in a freight elevator. Following in the steps of maniacal tour guides, you’ll witness outrageous performances in spaces you never imagined existed.
“Entertaining and chilling … The audience was held spellbound by either laughter or amazement throughout the tour.”
– Random Nation
“Imaginatively weird, madly grotesque and freak-y.”
– Bob Clark, The Calgary Herald
