Exactly 10 years after we launched the first IMPACT Festival, we come together again to celebrate our 6th biennial which promises to be larger and more exciting than ever before. 9 international productions from three continents, 7 Canadian shows from across the country and 7 locally made works, will grace the stages of downtown Kitchener over 6 days at the end of September.
