The health and well being of our cast, crew & audiences is our top priority. We have been following the COVID-19 outbreak in British Columbia and closely following the recommendations of the Province & Public Health Agency of Canada.

Ubique Arte - Kelowna's performing arts Company
Ubique Arte: the collective of beautiful, creative and significant art. Here and everywhere.
Our ambition is to make brave theatre. Through the ethos of collaboration, empowerment, creativity and artistic integrity, we aspire to produce truly authentic performance art.
Ubique, not only a poem written by Rudyard Kipling, was the motto of my grandfather’s artillery battalion and of course all other artillery as part of the British forces. My father’s house in Ladysmith, South Africa was called Ubique. It looked out over Umbiwambe, the mountain that the Boer fired their long Tom cannons from during the Siege of Ladysmith.
Because Ubique Arte came about from honouring my background, it’s important to me that we represent and practice inclusivity, diversity and freedom. Coming from South Africa, growing up in Canada and having lived in the United Kingdom, it’s important that we all share a sense of community and belonging to the earth. As Johnny Clegg used to say, “we are the scatterlings of Africa!”.
