Wheelchair-accessible Performance of Conduct

The School of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Calgary is presenting a special wheelchair-accessible performance of Conduct on Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Reeve Theatre.

This performance will be a modified, wheelchair-accessible version of the full performance. Because of the small size of the performance venues, the number of tickets is VERY limited. Patrons relying upon wheelchairs are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase tickets to have the full experience of the show. Please call the ticket office at 403.210.7576 to book tickets to this special, wheelchair-accessible performance.

Co-created and performed by students from the Divisions of Dance, Drama and Music, Conduct is a small-audience, immersive performance/event inspired by the enigmatic life and work of Henry Cowell, one of the most influential American composers of the 20th Century. Based on the extensive research of Jeremy Brown of the SCPA’s Music Division, this production incorporates theatre, music, dance, and intermedia to explore themes of innovation and eccentricity, morality and prejudice, sexuality and identity, and creativity in captivity.

  • Audience members will be blindfolded briefly at the beginning of the performance (for approximately 5 minutes).
  • Much of the performance will take place in small, enclosed environments with irregular floor surfaces.
  • All audience members will be asked to check their coats, outdoor clothing (hats, gloves, etc.) and bags or knapsacks. A coat check, with attendant, will be available at all performances.
  • All audience members are asked to bring a smartphone with wifi or cellular capacity as well as personal ear buds or headphones to enable audio access during the performance. Phones should be fully charged when you arrive at the theatre. You will be asked to download the “ConductPlayer” app to your phones for delivery of the performance soundscape.
