What to Do this Weekend in Kingston

It’s week 10! Due dates are looming closer, sunset is at 4:37pm so #itgetsdarkearly, the wind coming off Lake Ontario refuses to quit until it’s flipped over every recycling bin in the neighbourhood, and the lineup for CoGro/Timmy’s/the treadmill is the lineup for Wind Up Wednesdays. Un-cool!

You know what IS cool? The number 61! That’s how many events are happening in the NEXT THREE DAYS in Kingston! Just wait until you see a glimpse of what that looks like! Open the weather forecast in a new tab

DOLLHOUSE at The Isabel in collaboration with Tone Deaf Festival

Date: Saturday, Nov. 18 at 7:30pm. All Ages + cash bar.

“A remarkably creative feat of dance and music in the 21st century.”  Disruptive and surprising, Dollhouse walks a unique line of Artaudan fiction and slapstick with the performer acting simultaneously as instrument and conductor. “No other choreographer creates one-of-a-kind events as mystical, unpretentious, and full of wonder.” Governor-General Award in the Arts recipient, Gordon Monahan, will be creating the sounds live on-stage.
