Fascinating stories as unique as every one of us.

The world is a spectacular kaleidoscope of people with fascinating stories as unique as every one of us. One of a Kind is created around the true stories performed by the people who lived them; a talented, diverse group of extraordinary emerging theatre artists. 

The storytellers share their one-of-a-kind childhood tales filled with truth, cultural perspective, family languages, challenge, laughter and adventure.  Using physical theatre, puppetry, music, movement and more, they offer an extraordinary exploration of the universal expression of storytelling. 

Children will recognize themselves and be inspired to share their own stories. Commissioned by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

Testimonials

My class will most remember the quality of the act we saw. It was superb. Absolutely memorable for Kindergarteners. They laughed their heads off.

Teacher & Festival Attendee 

Our favourite anthem-maker! Her songs inspire every child to dream, and every adult to be a champion that kids need.

I absolutely LOVE this event! I like the variety of activities, the music, the roving artists, the general atmosphere, everything! I also love the shows — the variety of options is fantastic. Now I tell all my friends they have to go too!
