The newest creation of Calgary's own Summerlad take over the pulpit at One Yellow Rabbit's High Performance Rodeo this year with a dash of art and a punk.

  Movie Review: Assault on precinct cinemaPDF files may take a moment to load

The entire hotel creaks, foundation vaporized by whizzing bullets. Four of its occupants leap a stairwell as malicious metal monsters explode drywall and wooden studs. Dust and splinters shower the men as they slide around a corner into the gaping doorway leading out into the street.

The foliage behind the hotel rustles a warning as the death-dealers push through.

The linear philosophy of birth, life, then death being the be-all-end-all contradicts Santee Smith's dance performance Kaha:wi.
