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!

Season 4 Episode 26

Left to right: Paul Blinov, Jean Grand-Maître and Fawnda Mithrush after hosting the pre-show audience chat on opening night of Alberta Ballet’s All of Us.

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 happened: Betroffenheit blew through the Citadel on Easter weekend, leaving audiences agog in its wake. Did it meet our incredibly high expectations?

It’s classical children’s tale meets near-classic trope of parents facing the tragic death of a child. This week Paul takes on Alberta Ballet‘s sparkling new Cinderella, while Fawnda gets a taste of the “slow-theatre” movement at Wild Side Productions’ Poison with Laura Raboud.

Season 4 Episode 17

 

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. Get it?

Season 4 Episode 11

Paul and Fawnda and Laura saw ALL the things this week: We swilled vodka at Catalyst Theatre‘s presentation of Onegin, and caught Kill Your Television‘s all-male cast in Shakespeare’s R&J. Our eyes watered under the blinding lights of Shaping Sound, and finally we got caught up in the yarns of Rebecca Sadowski’s The Sash Maker (and learned a bit of weaving, too). Did anything pass the Bechdel Test? You may be surprised. Listen to find out!
