A look at some of the stories featured this week on Grid City.
What a week! There are a ton of events coming up in the next couple of weeks. Music, art and theatre happenings seem to be dominating our city as the cold weather begins rolling in. Here’s a look at what we shared this week.
On the theatre front, TNB EXTRAS presents Somme Letters Home this coming Sunday, November 9 at the TNB studio. The play is adapted from actual correspondence between Private John Bapst Cronin and his family back home in Saint John. We caught up with Nasty Shadows Theatre Company’s Scott Shannon to learn about the company’s upcoming production of Rougher Magic: A Cubist Shakespeare, which will run four Fridays beginning November 14. And Alex Donovan, artistic director of Imaginary Circumstances was our Centre Stage guest.
On the gallery scene, Galley 78 continue with two current shows: Maritime Shino and My Favourite Things, and Ingrid Mueller Art + Concepts unveil new work by Jared Betts this weekend at the Fredericton Convention Centre.
On the performance front, Fredericton’s Surgery Series announced their first show of the season which will host performances by two Toronto-based improvisational groups: Susanna Hood & Scott Thompson and Ken Aldcroft’s Convergence Ensemble. Halifax poet-laureate El Jones will perform at ConnexionARC’s studio in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre on Saturday November 8th. ConnexionARC will also play host to the touring Cold Cuts Video Festival for the next few weeks.
And finally, Shivering Songs announced their initial festival lineup to a packed house at the York Street Train Station as part of Picaroons’ Winter Warmer launch.
As always, if you’ve got things happening, let us know. Have a great weekend!
