OPENING TONIGHT – John Fingland rehearses Wednesday afternoon for ‘Dernière Frontière’ at The Old Fire Hall. The show finds and celebrates the space that exists between the myth of the Yukon and reality, and is in French with English subtitles. The project is an original idea of Véro Lachance in collaboration with Theatre Everest (Montréal) and a Yukon-based team. The show, which opens tonight and continues until Saturday, is part of the Nakai Pivot Festival.
