Raine’s newest album, Night Sky, tips between the earthly and the otherworldly. Raine’s ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of these powerful and relatable tunes, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello + double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach.

Raine is also a charming and funny storyteller. She offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR). Her album release will have American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, along with ASL consultation and shadowing by Joanna Hawkins. 
The show will also feature ASL poet Jordan Sangalang in the opening act.

Théâtre Cercle Molière, 340 boulevard Provencher, Winnipeg, Manitoba R2H 0G7

Theatre Projects Manitoba invites you to the world premiere of A Short History of Crazy Bone, a performance that treads the line between poetry, dance and theatre.

Canadian poet Patrick Friesen’s new play awakens Crazy Bone who walks on the outskirts of time, imagination and place, shunned for the non-conventional choices she has made. The play is an exploration of the nature of the outsider, crowded by others and acutely alone. 

The questions inherent in the piece are of an artist's place in society. It is also a poetic exploration of the prairie landscape. Crazy Bone will be played by Tracey Nepinak, with 
Arne MacPherson, David Arial, Tracy Penner and Zorya Arrow. 
Directed by Andraea Sartison
