See Janice Jackson debut a world premiere at Open Waters Festival Jan 8While you'd be hard-pressed to find a bad show at Open Waters Festival (the annual January celebration of improvisational music and the flow that comes along with it), we're especially psyched for Janice Jackson's Sunday showcase at the refreshed Dal Arts Centre's new, 300-seater Joseph Strung Concert Hall—one of the first shows to take place in the state-of-the-art space.
And what will Jackson be bringing to the stage? Four poems from Anne Martin's suite O DEATH, followed by Jackson's own solo, mini-opera, which the fest describes as centering around "one of Halifax's oldest ghost stories, which concerns Penelope and her final decision to end her existence and haunt the halls of Dalhousie's Shirreff Hall."
Tickets (which start at $20) and showtime deets available via Ticket Halifax.
