Ares Requests


Ares, God of War, is thinking about a career change. He requests your presence for a debate on what humanity can do to finally stop needing him all the time. As he reflects on his epic and illustrious past, in a realm outside of space and time, he also needs your advice; What else could the God of War become God of? You, the privileged few, are granted the power to decide if there will still be a God of War tomorrow. What will you choose? 

Vancouver Fringe is proud to present Ares Requests in its world premiere, brought to the 2022 Festival by Jennifer Huva of the award-winning Shidokan Productions (Athena’s Self-Defence for Girls to Be). 

“Huva can land a punch to the jaw as effortlessly as she articulates millennia of sexual politics”
