October 3 – Ha!Man (spoken word & cello performance)

    Monday, October 3, 2016

  • Doors open 7:30, performance at 8 pm
  • Suggested donation $10, cash bar 

This is going to be an incredible, unique performance.  Our intimate gallery is the perfect setting for this “part spoken word, part music” performance by two artists from South Africa and Belgium.

Francois le Roux, aka the HA!Man, is a South African cellist and multi artist that left the classical music environment to embark on a journey of spontaneous music making. Self-managed, a network of support has grown globally over two decades that invites and accommodates the “HA!Show,” workshops in spontaneous creativity and various collaborations. Joining him as partner is Belgian actress and word artist Joke Debaere. Like the term “HA!,” their performances can hardly be rationally defined. Yet with each engagement the trust is renewed that a deeply moving, energizing and healing nerve can be touched and that art can still build community.

The cash bar will be open, admission is by donation, with a suggested minimum of $10.  Doors open at 7:30 pm, and the performance will begin at 8 pm.

Oct 7 – Regina Word Up Community Stage ft Regina Slam Team

Admission is $10 + GST or PWYC (No one turned away.)
Doors at 7:30
Show around 8
All ages/+19 Cash Bar

Regina Word Up is held on the first, third and fourth Friday’s of every month. Regularly, the first Friday is a community stage, our third Friday is a poetry slam and our fourth Friday is a youth stage.

A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.

Have something you want to share that we didn’t list? We love creativity, and we would probably let you perform…just ask us!

There is a gentle time limit of 5 minutes per person to allow enough time for all of our community. If you have more to share than that, we will allow you another five minute block after everyone has performed, time permitting.

Audience members, come prepared with snapping fingers and a good pair of lungs, as always!

Twin Peaks

We are delighted to bring Twin Peaks back to Regina after their stellar debut at the 2016 Regina Folk Festival!

You don’t have to listen long to grasp the beauty in the blended voices of Western Canadian Music Award winning folk/roots duo Twin Peaks (Naomi Shore and Lindsay Pratt). But when you experience their live show you’ll realize that their music is about something much more captivating than just a catalogue of clever songs. It’s the expression of a rare kind of harmony that exists between their spirits – that’s what makes Twin Peaks so infectious and unforgettable.  And to see them perform in our intimate Hague Gallery will be a night to remember!  Click here for tickets!

This intimate format enables the audience to feel closer to the songwriters and to learn more about them and their creative process. You don’t have to be a songwriter to enjoy this; as long as you enjoy music, this event is for you!

Following the feature performance, there will be an open stage, where anyone is welcome to share one or two of their own songs. Join us for this special night of music and story-telling, and in welcoming these talented songwriters and performers to the stage… they will be on from 8:00pm to 9:30 pm, with our open mic session to follow.  Purchase advance tickets by clicking here!
