Chimera Theatre Presents the Second Annual Hydra Performing Arts Festival

KAMLOOPS, BC – After the wildly successful inaugural festival last year, Chimera Theatre is excited to announce the second annual Hydra Festival of Performing Arts in partnership with Actors Workshop Theatre. Once again, we will be premiering a selection of twelve new works next month at the Actors Workshop Theatre.

The Hydra Performing Arts Festival is a festival for theatre, dance, and music in Kamloops, BC. For our second year, we have an thrilling collection of new works by Kamloops artists with a focus on interdisciplinary art and challenging theatrical form. With comedies, dramas, burlesque, puppetry, and shows ranging from all ages to adults only, there’s sure to be something for everyone at the Hydra Festival!

We are striving to challenge what theatre is both for artists and audiences. We chose the Hydra because of its multiple heads it represents the many diverse ways theatre can grow and be presented. Like the Chimera, it represents many different forms coming together and working as a cohesive unit.
