Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre is celebrating ten years of theatrical thrill-seeking! From boiler rooms to +15 corridors, from abandoned warehouses to coffee shops, we’ve worked alongside more than 300 artists in the past decade to create and present thought-provoking art, and had a damn good time doing it. We’re going to celebrate, and we’d love for you to be there!

This raucous, nostalgic and forward-looking event will feature excerpts from past performances, new work by exciting local artists, music, dancing and more than a few surprises.

The evening will include…

  • Excerpts from Eavesdrop: The Coffee Shop Show and i-ROBOT Unplugged
  • 10-Minute Play Festival pieces from 2010 (Super 8), 2012 (Dig a Hole) and 2017 (What I Just Said Is True, Because I Said So)
  • Swallow-a-Bicycle’s first-ever creation from the Calgary MultiArts Variety Show in 2006, A World Gone Mad
  • The return of beloved characters like Louise from Freak Out! and Hubert from Shhhh!
  • A burlesque performance by Lily Bo Pique
  • Brand new creations by Telly James, Blake McLeod, Jay Northcott and Nikki Reimer
  • An art installation by Kevin Jesuino
  • Wandering performers and special guests
  • Village Beer, Avatara Pizza, raffle prizes and more!

We ask that you:
Respect yourself.
Respect each other.
Respect the space.
Recognize that consent for anything is clear, communicated, enthusiastic, ongoing, and can be renegotiated or withheld at any time.
