Interrarium is an innovative re-purposing of the residency model focusing on a process-oriented, creative environment for dialogue, critical thinking and experimentation. It expands the horizons for artists and audiences with genre-bending, multi-disciplinary, startling and original performance.

Interrarium showcases acclaimed international, Canadian and local artists and brings them together with an alchemy that inspires audiences, rejuvenates artists, stimulates discussion and forges productive relationships.

It is a facilitator driven lab for professional artists revealing creative practice across disciplines in an immersive environment.

This year Interrarium takes place in Calgary with a series of creative practice workshops  facilitated by accomplished national and international artists.
