Exhibit Three Cornered World 2013-10-17 11:00:00
Description

Visual Arts grad Anne Heeney presents her Three Cornered World, a collection of narrative paintings and abstracts. "Drawing will always be a substantial and universal pillar," says Heeney. "Colour, however, is deeply personal. I believe the more abstract pictures demonstrate both convictions. The only way to get the point of art is to experience it raw, in galleries, in museums and in studios—regularly." Runs daily to October 19 (closed Thanksgiving Monday).

Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Kitt & Jane @8pm 2013-10-17 20:00:00
Description

KITT & JANE

An Interactive Guide to the Near Post-Apocalyptic Future
Presented as this year's Spotlight on Alumni

Created by Ingrid Hansen, Kathleen Greenfield & Rod Peter Jr.
Produced by SNAFU Dance Theatre

While making a presentation to their school, two socially awkward 14-year-olds hijack the event and launch into fantastical instructions on how to survive the impending apocalypse. Full of “ingenuity, visual magic and strange humour” – and a few rollicking musical numbers – at its heart, this play is a poignant exploration of the world today’s youth are inheriting, and what they’re prepared to do about it. A stand-alone sequel to the highly acclaimed Little Orange Man, this winner of the Critics’ Choice Spotlight Award for Best New Play is a “hilarious, invigorating piece of theatre that will follow you home.”(CVVMagazine.com)
