Curated by CBC Debaters Richard Side and Charlie Demers, SFU Public Square’s Urban Conspiracy Cabaret 2: It’s the Economy Stupid! will use comedy, music and theatre to bridge a polarizing conversation on British Columbia’s economy on Oct. 4.

The event, part of SFU Public Square’s second annual community summit, Charting BC’s Economic Future, features the comedy of hosts Side and Demers, alongside performances from many celebrated local artists.

Interdisciplinary Aboriginal artist Margo Kane, who performed during SFU Public Square’s inaugural community summit, returns to the Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. Performers joining Kane on stage include music from the Hard Rubber Orchestra, dancers from the 605 Collective, and a theatrical performance from the children of Project Limelight.

Urban Conspiracy Cabaret 2: It’s the Economy Stupid! is part of Charting BC’s Economic Future, the second annual SFU Public Square Community Summit, with events taking place across the province between Sept. 28-Oct. 4, 2013. Tickets for Urban Conspiracy Cabaret 2: It’s the Economy Stupid! are $10 and available by purchasing online.
