What is Chinook Series?

Chinook Series thoughtfully curates collisions between artists and audiences to deliver 11 days of stirring contemporary performances, workshops, and salons. This year. Every winter, we welcome artists and audiences from across the street and around the world. Chinook invites you to interact with what’s now, explore what’s next, and inspire the not-yet-but-one-day-soon. This year’s programming offers an array of digital delights we invite you to experience from the comfort of wherever you are!

Chinook is powered by:
Azimuth’s Expanse Festival
Fringe Theatre
Sound Off: A Deaf Theatre Festival

What are the Chinook hours?

This year, Chinook Series offers you a sort of curate-your-own-artistic-adventure that invites you to engage with stirring Performances, engaging Salon discussions, and artistic Workshops.

Our Events this year can be accessed in a variety of ways:  

  • Recorded performances can be viewed on demand. See the schedule here;
  • Live events are happening throughout the Series. Tune in to a live performance, be a part of the conversation at a Salon, or expand your horizons at a workshop. See the schedule for details.
  • Would you like to sit back, and let one of our artistic partners take you on a guided journey? Curated Sets are available in both an on-demand format and a live community viewing event format.

Tell me more about your Offer What You Will program.

We believe art is an exchange, and we believe everyone has something to contribute. Offer What You Will tickets are available for every performance at Chinook Series.  

Online, you will see tiered price options to select from. Donations to specific partner organizations can also be processed online and are warmly accepted. 

Over the phone or email, you may offer any dollar amount you’re able to contribute. During in-person Box Office hours, you may also offer other non-monetary ways of showing respect and mutual investment, such as tobacco, your own art, or a donation you feel the artist(s) will benefit from. No offer will be refused, and no one will be turned away. 

Where do I find the Chinook Series schedule?

The schedule is divided into three categories:

  • On-Demand Events: these are events you can watch any time, at your own pace, from the comfort of your own home. Just be sure to get your fill before Chinook Series closes – On-Demand Events will not be available after April 4
  • Live Events: these events are timed, and are available to stream on the date and time specifically listed on the Schedule.

Email boxoffice@fringetheatre.ca
  • Digital Lobby: just like the real thing, but no one will know if you’re rocking pj pants and fuzzy slippers. Our Digital Lobby is a place for you to connect with other Chinookers, chat with artists, or ask our staff and volunteers questions about how to get the most out of your Chinook Series experience. The Digital Lobby will open for a select time each evening – c’mon by & say hi!
