KAMLOOPS - Western Canada Theatre is looking to the residents of Kamloops to share their personal stories and experiences in the city. The stories collected will be utilized as the inspiration to create the newest installment of the High-Wire Festival - Secret City. 

Secret City is a unique, personal, audio adventure, created by local artists, that features the true, untold stories of the citizens of Kamloops – like you – that reveal a secret side of our city you didn’t know.

The only stipulation is that stories must be true, they must be yours to share, and they must be connected to a specific, physical location within Kamloops.

Do you have a secret you’ve never told, a heartfelt memory, a moment of heartbreak, an instance of valour, or a story of love? Are you reminded of it every time you pass that park bench, or store front, or graffiti tag, or stop sign? Then we ask you to please share it with the artists behind Secret City.

Let your memory of the starlit summer night you strolled through Riverside Park and paused under the giant oak to share the kiss that told you this was forever be turned into a work of art!
How to submit your story: 

  • Please send us an email with your name, phone number, and the details of your story. Remember, the story must be true and it must be yours to share. Be specific about the details of the event (the who, when, where, what, and why) and the specific location in Kamloops it is connected to.
  • We strongly encourage the submission of personal stories. If selected, your story will become part of a public, theatrical event. If you choose, your identity as the source of the story will be kept secret.
  • Please send story submissions to Associate Artistic Director, Heather Cant – heather@wctlive.ca. 
  • Deadline for applications July 29, 2016 

The High-Wire Festival is an innovative and intimate theatrical experience designed to challenge both the Artist and the Audience by exploring the theatrical art form in non-traditional ways. This year’s High-Wire Festival, featuring Secret City, will run October 22 & 23, 2016.

Contact Heather with any questions at 250-372-3216 Ext. 529.
