Executive Director/Chief Curator, Art Gallery of Alberta
Recommendation: another Landscape show, Feb 16 – Jul 1
Explore an exhibition of works from the AGA’s permanent collection! In another Landscape show, four AGA curators cast their critical eyes on the type and amount of landscape images that can be found in our collection. Utilizing humour, fantasy and juxtaposition, the curators’ choices challenge us to view landscapes from a whole new perspective.
Music Director, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Winspear Centre
Recommendation: Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus, Apr 11
At the intersection of film, music, comedy, and history lies Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin, a.k.a. Charlie. It’s a tremendous joy to follow “the Tramp” as he entertains us with his madcap adventures, this time with a travelling circus as the backdrop. Chaplin himself wrote the score to the movie decades later, and your Edmonton Symphony Orchestra performs it live while the film is projected above the Winspear stage.
Artistic Director, Citadel Theatre
Recommendation: The Candidate and The Party, Mar 30 – Apr 21
The Citadel presents the world premieres of two interconnected comedies by Kat Sandler: The Candidate and The Party. Both plays happen at exactly the same time in two different theatres, with 10 actors running back and forth between the theatres performing both plays simultaneously! Each play is a great night on its own, but the fun is in coming back again to see how the story continues!
