Special Events


Join us for an evening influenced by the wild with appetizers by acclaimed chef Dennis Johnston, a natural themed silent auction, cash bar & performances by special guests including SuddenlyLISTEN's Norm Adams & and the Halifax Dance Young Company.

Attendees will also be treated to a sneak peek of Wild Within, choreographed by Mocean's Co-Artistic Director Sara Coffin - set to premiere in Fall 2019.

Tickets are:

  • Regular: $40 ($35 early bird until April 1)
  • Students/Seniors/Artists: $25
  • Tables of Eight: $280

    *plus applicable Ticketpro fees

Tickets can be purchased online via TicketPro, by phone 902-461-8401 or in person at the Alderney Landing Box Office.

Funds raised at Heart of the Wild will help to support the production of Wild Within, as well as associated community outreach as we plan workshops, student viewings and artists talks. Influenced by Sara's recent nomadic residency along the Yukon River with the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency, this new work explores the concept of the wild within, femininity, connecting to the energy of the land as well as the poetic play between function and decay found in nature's life cycles.
