Theatre Phoenix Theatre: A Queer Trial 2017-04-13 18:00:00
Description

\In 1860, two successive Victoria juries effectively acquitted an openly gay man of sodomy charges, the first jury preferring to spend a night in jail themselves sooner than agree on a guilty verdict. Written by Theatre professor Jennifer Wise, this production is a culmination of THEA 311, a course about creating site-specific theatre, and is directed by UVic theatre alumnus Matthew Payne, the Artistic Producer of Theatre SKAM. Join UVic theatre students as they musically and dramatically reenact this surprisingly inspiring event from Victoria’s early colonial history—on the very site where it occurred. Please arrive early and meet in Bastion Square near the entrance of the former BC Maritime Museum. Space is limited.

Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-04-13 19:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-13 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.
