Our mobile app puts the entire Festival in the palm of your hand.
Coming soon to Apple and Android devices, the SummerWorks App let’s you view schedules, book tickets, and explore the 50+ projects at this year’s Festival. The app also unlocks exclusive artist content developed to interact with the public spaces at each of our three main festival venues. From August 3-13, there will be location beacons at each of our main performance venues – The Theatre Centre, Factory Theatre, and Pia Bouman – and each venue will unlock a different project.
The development of the SummerWorks App is supported by the Metcalf Foundations’ Creative Strategies Incubator.
The SummerWorks App will be available for Android and iOS in July.

Every day two hundred species of plant, animal and insect disappear from the planet forever. Jordan Tannahill invites audiences to listen to the first two hundred notes of Chopin's Nocturne to mark each extinction and consider how, like a note in a score, each loss is both discrete and part of a grander system. And like the abbreviated recording itself, this unprecedented dying-off is far from finished. Part of The Arctic Cycle's Climate Change Theatre Action 2017.

Going&Coming is an interactive text-based piece that accompanies attending live performance works. A companion piece to Audience Handbook (2014), this work attempts to bring attention to the moments just before and just after a performance to extend how we understand our role as audience members.
