Tucked away in King's Hall, Maple Leaf Garden is a set of bar and cafe spaces through and behind the venue, open Wednesday to Sunday from 11:30 to 22:00 (13:30 to 22:00 on Tuesday).
First coming to the Fringe with the huge hit Counting Sheep in 2016, then returning for a full programme of shows in 2017, CanadaHub returns to King’s Hall, in association with Summerhall. Of their 2017 programme, Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story won a Herald Angel and Scotsman Fringe First, and has since been nominated for six Drama Desk Awards for its Off Broadway run. Foreign Radical also won a Scotsman Fringe First, while Mouthpiece won The Stage Award for Performance, and is being adapted into a motion picture.
This year’s programme combines puppetry, experimental theatre, Indigenous artists and thought provoking storytelling from some of Canada’s most celebrated artists.
Presented in association with Summerhall, CanadaHub is produced by Selfconscious Productions in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts and in association with the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom.
Selfconscious Productions is an international production company that develops and produces work, books and manages tours and builds contexts for the presentation and representation of work nationally and internationally. We have a track record of success with building new and primarily international opportunities for Canadian work. Our focus is to find and work with exceptional Canadian performance makers, from across the country at all stages of their career, who we believe have the capacity to operate in world-class international contexts. These are uniquely Indigenous and Canadian voices who are pushing forms and dialogues forward and bringing them to a world stag
