Strange Visitations first debuted with the 2014 fifth Anniversary Visitorium Foofarah Live! event at the Clocktower Brewpub, then went on to launch officially with the 20 minute piece Faster Than the Speed of Dating which premiered at that year’s Fresh Meat Festival. A small, DIY Theatre company with an emphasis on clown-inspired original works, and based out of Ottawa Ontario, SV is the Theatrical wish-machine of Kevin Reid, longtime writer of the Visitorium blog. He has so far been joined in this venture by Madeleine Hall, Jodi Morden and Rebecca Laviolette as collaborators. Their mandate: we have none (yet). Only a playdate…and its with you! Peace, love and soul,
Kevin Reid – Artistic Director, Strange Visitations
