Film MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance 2017-03-26 15:00:00
Description

MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance

Director: Tomer Heymann; Israel, 2015, 100 min; English & Hebrew with subtitles; PG

WINNER! DOCUMENTARY AUDIENCE AWARD –SXSW Festival

Leading Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is profiled in possibly the most exciting documentary for fans of edgier modern dance since “Pina.” With a compelling lead character and plenty of striking performance footage from his tenure to date as director of Batsheva Dance Group, Tomer Heymann delivers a feature that has won a handful of fest prizes.

Still fit, limber and driven as ever in his mid-60s, Naharin began professional training as late as age 22. He accepted an offer in 1990 to take over Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Company. He chucked its staple fare for some adventuresome new works of his own. Their electric impact, incorporating jagged, unpredictable movement, multimedia factors, sociopolitical themes and other challenging elements, quickly attracted new patrons — and critical admiration that greatly increased the institution’s international stature.

Between riveting excerpts from individual dances, Naharin is shown rehearsing his company and creating new pieces. –Variety

Mark this “Required Viewing” for dance fans who know the term Gaga goes far beyond the lady in the meat dress. Blending a stunning collection of archival footage, interviews with his uncompromising subject, and awe-inspiring dance excerpts, Heymann crafts a definitive portrait of a brilliant innovator who’s influenced dance across the planet. Georgia Straight

Other THE IRRELEVANT SHOW! LIVE RECORDING 2017-03-26 19:30:00
Description

LIVE FROM THE FARQUHAR AUDITORIUM... IT’S THE IRRELEVANT SHOW!

CBC Radio’s hit comedy show, The Irrelevant Show, is coming to Victoria to record an evening of all-new comedy sketches and songs.

Now entering its seventh season on national radio, The Irrelevant Show finds laughs in the lives of everyday Canadians: hit sketches include Mom Downloads a Podcast, The Chemainus Song, The New Ten Commandments (Which declares “Thou Shalt Not Microwave Fish at Work”) and Man Cold.

The show also offers an irreverent take on popular culture - from the news, to game shows, to superheroes. They’ve done sketches about Yoda, Batman and Lord of the Rings, and created a popular video in which an NHL player thanks fans for telling him to shoot the puck. http://www.cbc.ca/radio/irrelevantshow/nhl-player-thanks-hockey-fans-for-telling-him-to-shoot-the-puck-1.3420306.

"We offer something for every comedy taste," says producer/director Peter Brown, "there are so many styles and points of view, that the show completely changes subject and tone from one sketch to the next.

At tapings, when I ask audience members which sketch was their favorite, I usually get ten different answers. It’s great to see the sketches resonating with so many different people."

The Irrelevant Show’s cast is made up of some of Canada’s most talented comedy performers: Mark Meer, Donovan Workun, Jana O’Connor and Neil Grahn. For this performance, the cast will be joined by BC comic and actor Amy Shostak, and the musical guests will be Victoria’s own Jan Randall and Wes Borg.

These live recordings are events unto themselves, with sound effects created right before the audience’s eyes and ears, and between-sketch banter that many fans say is a highlight of the live show. The Irrelevant Show has become one of CBC Radio’s most successful comedy shows, drawing 750,000 listeners every week. The show has won two Canadian Comedy awards (most recently for the sketch Bee Circus) and a medal for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program at the prestigious New York festivals.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-26 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Lecture/Seminar "The Old Gods and the New": The Politics of Ethnic and Religious Identity in Restoration England 2017-03-26 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by John Trafford, Winnifred Lonsdale Graduate Student Fellow.
Early modern England was a politically messy place, and it was never a foregone conclusion that the country’s politics would develop into the form that we know today. This presentation examines the conflicts between religious and ethnic identities in the tumultuous period of English political history in the late seventeenth century. It will explore early modern England’s anti-Catholic culture, and the ‘ancient liberties’ of the English people. Demonstrating the interconnectedness of religious and ethnic identities in this time and place will help us to understand the extent to which church and state were unified, and the impact this had on notions of ‘Englishness.’
