ABOUT THE ARTIST
The Ottawa Stilt Union is a bilingual group of artists, committed to bringing the magical and the unexpected into the daily lives of people in the National Capital Region and beyond by creating and performing original theatre works that celebrate spectacular physical modes of expression. We strive to make our work accessible to the public physically, financially and linguistically.
The OSU was founded in 2007. Since then we have created 10 original theatre works as well as a series of participatory performance events collectively known as the Youppi Club. Our focus has gradually shifted from pure performance to more audience engagement. We have a particular interest in bringing our events into unconventional performance spaces, with an emphasis on collectively devised, site-specific creation.

To work with seniors at Carleton Lodge in creating an original performance that reflects their personality as individuals and as a group.
Spectacular river views and a beautiful garden setting are just some of the many features that compliment the excellent facilities, expert staff, and responsive services provided by Carleton Lodge.
Situated on a picturesque, 12-hectare waterfront property, the Lodge overlooks the Rideau River in South Ottawa.
The original Lodge was opened in 1960, and was the first municipal Long Term Care Home in Ottawa-Carleton. A new facility was reconstructed, and opened its doors on April 8, 1989.
