Make A Mistak! is a first time duo-collaboration between award winning theatre artists; Candice Roberts of Candy Bones Theatre and Nayana Fielkov of Ragmop Theatre. Candy and Nayana have been professionally performing together for over 15 years in such projects as The Myrtle Sisters and The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. Make a Mistak! masterfully combines their love of immersive physical theatre, music, mask, puppetry, clown and dance to explore the ART of FAILURE. This project was developed with the voices of the grade 4/5 class of Nootka Elementary School and was generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.

IDEAS BOBERT is a simple and silly metaphorical story about a mostly silent character (a la Charlie Chaplin) who has a bird puppet for a heart. The bird wants Bobert to dance and play music, but Bobert is afraid to express himself. Throughout the show the character engages the audience in exploring his silly and complicated solutions to his everyday conundrums. Eventually he learns the importance of listening to and caring for his heart by connecting with others through his creative expression. With a vintage silent film styling, shadow puppetry, stop motion animation projections, dance and live music, the world of Ideas Bobert is rich with magic and creativity.

It's Canada's Favourite game show where YOU fail your way to success! How does growth mindset and "being challenged" grow our brains? Join our hosts Dr. Sarah Bellum and Dr. Cere Brum as we together explore the art and neuroscience of FAILURE. Audience members are invited on stage to participate in fun-to-watch games that engage and stretch their creative minds. Using innovative live shadow puppetry- the "brainometer" measures the contestants brain while projecting it's synaptic pathways and activity onto a large screen. It's not about winning the game, it's about growing your brain! Experience "Brain Breaks", a moment in the "Think Tank", and a motivational talk from the friendly Not-Yet-i Monster who reminds us that we can always add YET-i to CAN'T. Everyone makes mistakes! Let's build on a culture for a failure-friendly environment that celebrates our mistakes as a necessary part of the creative process!
