The Royal Canadian Legion #1


Part of the 36th annual High Performance Rodeo, Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts


International performance from France.  Music, puppetry and clowning collide in this sideways retelling of the Shakespearian classic of murder and mayhem, Hamlet. Puppets, power tools and buckets of blood breathe hilarious new life into this iconic tale.


Something Is Rotten is concentrated into a wild tour de force of clowning, repurposed props, live music, and a low-fi spectacle that is sure to amaze and delight.
