About the Show

North, South, East, West – Which direction is forward?

Join us in the time honoured tradition of building a tent outdoors to house a night in which we share stories old, new, fiction and true. We invite you to enter the tent at Woodland Park to journey to The 4 Cardinal Points, the divine directions that hold universal intelligence, in search of coming back to centre, to the bare bones that are in alignment with the earth, fire, water and air.

This New Creation night will showcase 3 new works in a cabaret format, breaking in between each performance. Amidst the breaks the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy complimentary food from Tayybeh, a unique social enterprise and food venture, courtesy of the most amazing newcomer Syrian women chefs. https://tayybeh.com/. And to round out the evening we’ll have a night market featuring local artistic vendors @brutalbeauties, @lines.by.regina, @shyegg_, & @mosaic.motif.

Doors will open at 7:00pm. Show up early to enjoy the festivities. Performances start at 7:30pm.

Purchase your tickets here.

Kaya Ko is a first generation, queer Philipinx born on Turtle Island. A multi media artist, Kaya began

music at the ripe age of 5 with violin and singing. They picked up guitar in grade 3 and began song writing at the age of 10. Fast forward 15 years, with the help of SAE Institute, Kaya began producing music after years of acoustic performance and live looping.

They have since released an EP entitled “feeltherain” with good friend and producer “ciscles”, a fully self produced & mixed EP, “start somewhere”, one self produced & mixed single “what you want” and a band recording of original song “Complications”, recorded & mixed by Dani Lion.

Their style of music is a blend between flavours of old school RnB, Soul & Hiphop as well as influences from folk, punk, grunge and rock.

Their aim is to unite people through vibrations transmuted from their Human Experience.


Keara Barnes is a multiple award-winning actor/writer/producer and emerging director from Vancouver, B.C. She holds a BFA in Theatre from the University of Victoria and studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.

Recent stage credits include Mom’s the Word (Theatre Northwest), Screwball Comedy (Royal Canadian Theatre Company), HELLO (Theatre Terrific), and Mr.Burns: A Post Electric Play (Little Mountain Lion Productions). Keara is the writer/performer behind two acclaimed one-woman storytelling shows, Almost a Stepmom & TravelTheatrics, which toured around Western Canada for four years.

Keara is also a filmmaker and currently has three award-winning short films playing in the international film festival circuit. She is a three-time Best Actress winner for her short film ‘A Midwinter Nightmare’ and recently won ‘Best Scriptwriter’ at the Montreal Independent Film Festival for her most recent film ‘The Stepmom’ which she adapted from her solo theatre show.


樂凡 (Van Lefan), she/they, is a Taiwanese multidisciplinary artist currently based in Vancouver, BC. She honors music as powerful medicine for healing, connection, change, and the sharing of stories and ideas.
Her 2022 debut album, “What Holds Us Together?” is a sonic journey that synergizes folk, pop, world music, experimental soundscapes and poetry. Together, these stories weave a multi-sensory tapestry of ancestry, identity, ecological reverence and social justice. Her work holds a mirror up to the audience as both an invitation for self- inquiry, and a collective call to action.
