14.15 Season Unveiled
A new season presents a new opportunity to explore, discover, experience, and reflect. Our upcoming 2014.15 season offers a spectrum of emotional journeys and I am thrilled to share the details of what’s coming up with you.
In 2014.15, you will see great performance art in all of its forms, be it music, theatre, dance, or multimedia. Your season season starts with Kiss & Cry
, an extraordinary dance production from Belgium in which two hands, filmed live in close-up, portray two lovers as they dance around a set of miniature landscapes. It’s a beautiful and transfixing blend of film, dance, text and theatre.
We will then present Helen Lawrence, a production that is at the frontier of new media use in performance art. Along with collaborators at Arts Club Theatre and The Banff Centre, we are proud to share this work from world-renowned visual artist Stan Douglas with the world. The show intertwines theatre, visual art, live-action filming and computer-generated simulations of historical sites to tell a suspense-filled tale. If you’re interested in the fusion of art, theatre, and multimedia, this new production is perfect for you.
Music will play a starring role in the season with What Makes a Man, a new creation from Necessary Angel and Jennifer Tarver (director of 2013’s Venus in Fur) with Justin Ellington that explores the life of famed French-Armenian singer Charles Aznavour. A circus piece from living legends Victoria Chaplin (daughter of the iconic comedian Charlie Chaplin) and Jean-Baptiste Thierrée, Le Cirque Invisible, adds playful charm to your season.
The work of some of Canada’s most esteemed choreographers will be on display in Older and Reckless, and at Spotlight South Africa you will have the chance to see a selection of the greatest performance art that country has to offer. Canadian premieres dominate the winter season at the Bluma Appel Theatre with The Other Place, a brilliantly troubling and unexpectedly humourous play, followed by the deeply perceptive Harper Regan. A unique spin on Chekhov’s The Seagull from Crow’s Theatre begins in January 2015 at our intimate Berkeley Street Theatre.
The season will end on a high as you will get to experience Robert Lepage’s Needles and Opium for a second time. After a string of sold-out performances, many of you expressed a desire to see this masterpiece either for the first time or again, and we’re delighted that you’ll get that opportunity.
It’s a season that truly elasticizes the idea of what a theatre is in an urban world today, and we want to explore these possibilities with you.
