The Cave


While the forest fire rages all around, destroying everything in its path a group of animals escapes to what they believe will be the safety of The Cave. As they try to wait it out their anxiety grows. Some animals retreat into memories, others become increasingly aware of the centuries of human activity that has led to the obliteration of their homes.

An entertaining apocalyptic cabaret created by celebrated Canadian artists John Millard (composer), Tomson Highway (lyrics), and Martha Ross (dramaturg), The Cave is an intimate, urgent response to our changing environment, that poses questions about climate change, and who is responsible for this land and the lives that inhabit it?

An evening of riveting storytelling and music, told by the innocents, challenges us all. The Cave will be live-streamed to locations near and far on Saturday, June 22nd, including by Rumble in Vancouver. Other partners include the Banff Centre, the National Arts Centre, and Nakai Theatre in Whitehorse. The livestream that is simultaneously watched all over Canada and the world inspires and defines the spirit of the project.

Rumble Day at ReFind

ReFind Home Furnishings

Sunday, June 23, 2019
12pm to 7pm
at ReFind4609 Main Street, Vancouver, BC V5V 3R6

On Sunday, June 23rd we’re partnering with our friend Bart Taylor at ReFind Home Furnishings to host a special Rumble Day at the shop. ReFind is one of the best vintage furniture shops in Vancouver and we’ve had the pleasure of working with Bart before — ReFind provided furnishings for our 2018 Tremors lounge and, more recently, some set pieces for our production of BLANK — and we’re stoked to be able to join forces for this fundraising event.

Please pop by, say hi, grab a snack and a drink, and shop ReFind’s excellent selection of mid-century modern home furnishings. 10% of all purchases made on the day will be donated to Rumble, so this is a great opportunity to support a local business and a local theatre company!
