JM Drama presents:

Neil Simon’s

“The Odd Couple”

 

J.M. Drama Alumni and The Odd Couple have a history together. The Odd Couple was the first production of J.M. Drama in the summer of 1983. And, like the plot in The Odd Couple, J.M. Drama grew out of friendships.

 

The “alumni” in J.M. Drama Alumni is not an accident with the members initially being alumni from St. Jerome’s and St. Mary’s High Schools in downtown Kitchener. These members had become friends through their involvement in and love of theatre at the two high schools. They wanted to continue both the experiences and the friendships.  Today, J.M. Drama is a much different organization than in 1983, with a much broader membership base and many more activities, including The Registry Theatre. But two critical elements remain – friendships and a love for live theatre and their contribution to the community.

 

J.M. Drama’s April 2015 production of The Odd Couple draws on those elements. A number of the cast were also involved in the 1983 production; all of the cast have been involved in a number of J.M. Drama productions over the intervening 30+ years. And friendships have, throughout this period, remained, lapsed, re-engaged and evolved as do all long term friendships. While Oscar, Felix, Vinnie, Murray, Speed, Roy, Cecily and Gwendolyn and their onstage experiences are “fiction”, we can all recognize ourselves and our friendships in them – the ups, the downs, the happiness, the tears and the underlying affection that draws friends together both in times of good and of need.

MAIN SERIES 30TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT NO. 3: SOUNDS FROM SPACE

CURATED BY JESSE STEWART

 

Jesse Stewart performs Sounds from Space: The Voyager Golden Record Remix on Canada’s only “reactable,” an experimental instrument. Sounds from Space will remix the contents of the Voyager golden records (phonograph records included aboard both Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977, containing sounds and images that portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, intended for intelligent extraterrestrial life forms, or future humans, to find), layering and manipulating fragments of the recordings using a new electronic instrument known as the “reactable,” a digital sampler with a tangible user interface on an illuminated tabletop. An accompanying video, made especially for the Sounds from Space project, will apply a similar cut-and-mix sensibility to the 116 images contained within the golden record’s grooves.

Friday May 1, 8 PM
Tickets: $30, $20 Senior & Arts Worker, $10 Students

Tribal Crackling Wind

Artistic Director Peter Chin presents three works that will arouse wonder and sheer delight:

 

Ferocious Compassion
Created for acclaimed Cambodian dancer Chy Ratana, Ferocious Compassion explores traditional and contemporary Khmer dance.

 

con/tempo/rare
This solo worked, performed by Peter Chin explores quirky spontaneity in the present moment through dance, vocalization and mediative states.  Time, space, ephemera, cause and effect is contemplated and acted up.

 

Woven (excerpt) 
Woven explores traditional weaving practices, and the revitalization of lost traditions of natural dyeing and working collaboratively with nature.
