The first in a series of recorded live performances of music, theatre, and dance at the Silver Screen Drive-in, Ridge is a vivid, kinetic, intimate, and personal examination of our connection to the past that passionately argues against the exploitation of young lives.
Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through this visceral work, told through direct storytelling, verbatim theatre, and live music, Brendan McLeod examines misconceptions and varying perspectives around the battle, while drawing parallels to other formative events in our nation’s past. Featuring inventive musical interpretations of WWI soldier songs performed with his band The Fugitives, Ridge probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve.
Brendan McLeod is a writer, theatre artist, and musician. He is the author of one novel, one poetry collection, and five theatre shows. He was the 2012 Poet of Honor at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word and the 2015 Poet of Honour at the Victoria Spoken Word Festival.
The Fugitives is a folk collective headed by songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod and joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters), that has been nominated for multiple Canadian Folk Music and Western Canadian Music Awards, including Best Songwriter, Best Roots Group, and Best Vocal Group.
