I'm shutting this site down. Not as many events are happening due to the pandemic, I want to focus my energy on other projects, and there's another local event listing site now. Stay safe, and hopefully our leaders will make the changes necessary so we can all survive covid and enjoy live events together soon. --Daniel

"Between Breaths is a breathtaking and compassionate telling of one man’s legacy." - MOONEY ON THEATRE, TORONTO

"[Between Breaths] will bring you to tears and leave you in awe." - NS REVIEWS, HALIFAX

"Deeply moving, intimate, and intense." - ARTSFILE, OTTAWA

“Forty tons of muscle, fat, and bone, launched like a rocket. A Breach. No one’s entirely sure of why they do it. I might be tempted to say it’s nothing if not joy.”

In the final moments of his extraordinary life, east coast whale researcher Jon Lien tried desperately to tell his wife something, which she struggled to understand.

Between Breaths floats through the inspiring career of the man who freed more than 500 whales from fishing nets. From his unexpected first encounter with a whale, Lien worked to earn the trust of the injured giants, as well as the fishermen whose nets accidentally entrapped them.

Performed on the Patrick Stewart Mainstage
