Cliff Cardinal's CBC Special

Presented by Theatre Kingston

In this theatre performance hosted at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning, Cliff Cardinal brings you his version of what his CBC Special would look like.

You’re listening to the radio in your kitchen. The program moves from the host to the story, the story to the song. An evening of words and music with internationally-lauded writer and performer Cliff Cardinal as he performs original, dark and catchy folk songs; miraculous stories of familial resilience; legends of Turtle Island survival; and new contributions to the ongoing mythology of the Canadian experience. This is Cliff’s eagerly anticipated solo follow-up to Huff, and teams him once again with acclaimed director/dramaturge Karin Randoja.

Created and performed by Cliff Cardinal; Directed and Dramaturged by Karin Randoja.

Ages 15+
