S5E6: Dogs in Space and a Rage Baby

Fawnda is away this week, leaving Paul and Andrew to hold down the fort. In this episode we look at the existential dread of knowing your pet will one day die in Ainsley Hillyard’s Jezebel at the Still Point. Then we’re joined by Lindsay Eales, co-artistc director of CRIPSiE, to discuss the Mad creation processes behind Mobilize — a big ‘ol show featuring six works by artists living with disabilities and/or mental health issues. Buckle up folks as we blast off into space and behind the scenes into a world built on the principles of consent, choice, and invitation.

20180905_153409

Programs runneth over our desk—and we still are trying to cobble together what everyone is up to. BUT, that wouldn’t stop us from attempting to record our Season Preview! Long weekend stuttering, mispronunciations, and doggy barge-ins abound. Enjoy.

Also, check out the new listings calendar that EAC started up here. 

And please consider signing up to become a Patron. We’ve enjoyed conversing about stage stuff for four years now, and we’re hoping you can help us out with things like domain costs, editing software, and—let’s be honest—coffee.

Season 4 Episode 29

It’s a peanut butter and jam-slammed episode of #yegarts news, Sterlings chatter, classical Kathak in KHOJ, and a very special drop-in by Trent Wilkie from The Undad to talk about Concrete Theatre‘s Sprouts Festival and theatre for kidlets. Also Fawnda attempts to describe seeing Angels in America in one measly minute. Listen to her fail!

This week we catch Alberta Ballet’s All Of Us (ie: The Tragically Hip portrait ballet) in all its post-apocalyptic, dread-headed glory. Does it do Downie justice? Do we win the war? Is it even ballet? We try to answer these questions in the post-show parkade. Do we succeed? You tell us!

It’s an extra special throwback to when Meg Roe and Alessandro Juliani were in town starring in Onegin. They’re also part of the sound design team for Betroffenheitand before they moved on to the next tour stop, we snagged them to chat about working with Crystal Pite, their own creative partnership, and what to anticipate in one of the most widely acclaimed dance shows of the decade. Beasts, beats, Battlestar Galactica.
