FemFest2014: She's Got The Power!
on September 2,2014 by jared

This year's festival promises to pack a powerful punch!

A tattooed teen, family feuds, Immaculate Conception and a paranormal comedy – this diverse range of plays all explore the theme of power! Sarasvàti Productions presents FemFest 2014: She’s Got The Power, the 12th annual theatre festival of life changing theatre written by women for everyone. This year’s line-up explores how power shapes and defines the ways we interact with others and the world around us. Featuring local and national talent, FemFest2014 invites Winnipeg audiences to experience theatre that challenges the status quo while empowering the voiceless.


Not only does FemFest2014 squeeze war, psychic abilities, tattoo addictions, and free brownies into this year’s line-up, it also features interactive and educational workshops by guest artists. One workshop by Vancouver-based playwright Tara Travis will facilitate communication through the use of outspoken puppets. Travis has been a hit at recent Fringe Festivals with her performance of Till Death: The Six Wives of Henry VIII, which received rave reviews. Of course the festival also continues the tradition of developing local playwrights with the world premiere of two plays: Rebecca Gibson’s The Naked Woman was chosen by last year’s Bake-Off audience and will receive a full production and Tyler White’s Launched was in the Bake-Off two years ago. FemFest is truly helping to create and showcase the work of female artists!

FemFest runs at the University of Winnipeg Asper Centre for Theatre and Film (400 Colony Street) from September 13-20, 2014. Tickets are $10 for single shows with the full festival being available for a $50 festival pass. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 204-586-2236. FemFest welcomes all audience members to join in a celebration of female artists and experience a taste of the local and national art scene.

Founded in 2003 by Sarasvàti Productions, FemFest presents the work of both established and emerging artists from across Canada. The festival’s mandate is to produce one-act plays by women and showcase women theatre artists.

FemFest2014-She’s Got The Power runs from September 13th-20th. Enhance your festival experience by connecting with us over social media using #FemFest!

on August 26,2014 by michael

From the fine folks at the Harvest Moon Festival, a reminder that your window for buying early-bird tickets is fast closing. Stay tuned to UMFM for interviews with the organizers and features with the performers!

________________________________

We are fast approaching Harvest Moon Festival 2014 and early-bird tickets are selling out at record speed! With 2014 being the International Year of the Family Farm, we’ll be celebrating the tradition of family farming in a big way. Surrounded by the beauty of the Pembina Valley, this unique three-day festival is a celebration of the harvest season, local food production, the area’s rich cultural heritage, and the bond between rural and urban folks.  The town of Clearwater will once again host the 13th perennial festival September 12-14, 2014.

This year’s unforgettable line-up is set to include the homegrown talents of: Royal Canoe , DJ Co-op & DJ Hunnicutt, Ridley Bent, Pegggers Banquet, Del Barber, Heartbeat City, Les Jupes, Shotgun Jimmie, JD & the Sunshine Band, Yes We Mystic, French Press, Human Music, SC Mira, Naysa, SMRT, Kipp Kocay and his Band, Slow Spirit, the Reverend Rambler, Well Sister, Jess Reimer, and more.

For the past 13 years, the Harvest Moon Festival has helped support economic development and family farming in Southwestern Manitoba. As well as economic development and great music, education and information has always played a significant role in the event. Festival goers can attend informative and hands-on workshops, which are free with admission. In addition to music and workshops, there will be a children’s area, a fair-trade fair, a farmer’s market, and tasty locally produced food from a variety of exciting food vendors. 

Last year’s festival was our first sell out, and tickets are selling even faster this year. We anticipate the festival will sell out even earlier this year. Early bird tickets are available until September 1 in Winnipeg (Organic Planet), in Clearwater (Clearwater Country Market), and Brandon (Two Farm Kids).  Weekend Passes ($55 adult/$30 youth ages 12-17). Camping ($10 adult/$5 youth). Friday only ($25 adult/$15 youth).  Saturday only ($35 adult/$20 youth).  Mooner Pass (1-5 people, max 2 adults): $150 (does not include camping).
