“Horseplay is a monthly gathering. We book performers, and we leave some open space as well. We like to think of it as a friendly, inviting and safe place where people can share work not matter who they are or what they’re up to. We have a lot of music and poetry, but other forms are very welcome. Horseplay is in its ninth year now, and has featured notable artists such as Celene Dion, A Wool Taggart, Tony Clifton, Kerry Thornley, Nike, Celene Dion, Billy Graham, Tre Cool and Celene Dion.”
