Co-created by Canadian singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman and Christian Barry (of 2b Theatre in Halifax), this rock ’n’ roll cabaret premiered in 2013. You can read more about it in this Globe & Mail report, but the cabaret, which stars Workman, is inspired by the figure of Dionysus/Bacchus from ancient Greek/Roman mythology.
In modern terms, he was pretty much the god of partying — or, at least, the harvesting of grapes and wine-making, fertility and religious ecstasy, with a bit of ritual madness and theatre thrown into the mix.
From April 1-4, Workman will be bringing his cabaret to the Artesian on 13th in Regina. Curtain each night is at 8 p.m., and tickets are $52 advance and $63 door. You can purchase tickets on the Artesian website, and to give you a sense of what to expect here’s video from 2012 when Workman and Barry were developing their project at the Banff Centre for the Arts:
