During the Reunion 2010 weekend, we also want you to show us what you can do with your On the Edge performance. On the Edge is music, theatre, art, magic, dance, film, acrobatics… you name it, you can perform it during Saint John 225’s Reunion 2010 weekend, August 5 to 8, 2010.
Saint John 225 is looking for performers – in any medium – to play in public spaces such as a street corner, a wall, the skate park, or any place that makes you want to sing, dance, draw, paint, and play. Email email@example.com
