JANUARY 29 TO FEBRUARY 11 Welcome chilly weather with WinterCity and the WOW! Series of free outdoor performances at Nathan Phillips Square (100 Queen St. W.). French theatrical troupe Compagnie Les Passagers stages visually compelling shows with dancing and acrobatics high above the audience’s heads. Steel yourself for the Flaming Lotus Girls, who will set alight a giant metal sculpture of a bird in Angel of the Apocalypse, an interactive fire installation that invites crowds to move between the flaming feathers. Stick around for skating parties celebrating the Chinese Lantern Festival and Paris Carnival, too. Call 416-338-0338 or visit here for more information.
