Jazz Winnipeg Presents: 
Elizabeth Shepherd
w/ Zachary Rushing

After 3 years of interviewing strangers who all shared being Montrealers, Elizabeth found herself with countless stories that make up a "people's history" of the city she loves so much, which she then wove into 11 original songs. 
The four-time JUNO nominee and two-time Polaris-Prize nominee has been featured on BBC, J-Wave (Japan), WBGO (New York), NPR and Deutschland Radio.

A transplant to Winnipeg via Seattle, Washington, Zachary Rushing brings a seasoned sound rich in varied influences and styles. He has performed musical theatre, contemporary pop, classical and more, though he is most at home with the jazz tradition.

November 18, 8 PM – 11 PM

The Paper Kites will be back in town with Wild Rivers! 
Our hotel window in New York City looked straight into the apartment building across the street. You could see all these windows lighting up and people getting home from their nights out. We just sat there and watched them. It was fascinating. It was living art.
It's a collection of stories about these characters all living in an apartment building; I wanted to capture moments, feelings, it's about people and their stories.

We will be presenting a handful of unique and exciting shows!
This award-wining adaptation of King Ubu has garnered much praise. Since its creation, Ubu has been performed over 850 times in Québec, Mexico, Brazil and Europe!

Two armies of French baguettes face each other in a stand-off as tomato bombs explode, an egg beater hovers over fleeing troops and molasses-blood splatters on fork-soldiers as they charge Père Ubu. Anything goes as Poland's fate is sealed on a tabletop! Film references spice things up as two performers hammer-out a small-scale fresco of grandiose buffoonery.
