BUZZZ

Thanks to everyone who made ANXIETY a fantastic success. The work was terrific, the reviews were great, and the houses were full. It was a theatrical event to be remembered. It takes a village to make a small-scale national collaboration possible. ANXIETY was successful because of the hard work and full on buy-in of artists, technicians, administrators and volunteers here in Edmonton and across the country. To all you contributed in large and small ways THANK YOU. Every contribution large and small made it possible. Thanks and ever thanks to our artistic collaborators Northern Light Theatre from (Edmonton), Theatre Skam (Victoria) and Outside the March (Toronto), LoHiFi Production (Halifax) and Curtain Razors (Regina) add Théâtre à corps perdus (Montreal). Thanks particularly to the everyone who billeted and drove out of town artists, our hard working front of house team, and the oh-so-many people who lent us things and generally went above and beyond the call of duty to help. It is Edmonton’s community that makes initiatives like this possible. Words are not enough.
