Named one of the top ten arts events of 2020 by the Globe and Mail. Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through direct storytelling and live music, Brendan McLeod and his band, The Fugitives, examine misconceptions and varying perspectives around the battle. Featuring inventive musical interpretations of WWI soldier songs, Ridge is a visceral work that passionately argues against the exploitation of young lives.

“Riveting…The way history was meant to be told.” – Entertainment Vancouver
