SPIN

written and performed by Evalyn Parry

a tour-de-force performance celebrating the Bicycle

One part documentary and another part musical activism, Spin is inspired in part by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1895. parry spins a fascinating web of stories that travel from 19th-century women’s emancipation to 21st-century consumer culture, peeling back layers of history to reveal a surprising and contemporary heart to her theme of liberation.

A vintage bicycle, hooked up to simple electronics and suspended in a mechanic’s stand, is played – from fenders to spokes to vinyl seat, from whirling pedals to bells – by percussionist Brad Hart, providing a captivating sonic accompaniment to parry’s songs and monologues. Staged by award-winning director Ruth Madoc-Jones, with stunning visual projections by acclaimed designer Beth Kates, this unique show has delighted audiences across the continent.

Comedy @ The Registry

featuring Nour Hadidi & Amy Bugg with Nader Mansour

Don’t miss our last hump-day hilarity for the season!

Nader Mansour

Hometown host Nader Mansour offers himself up as comedy fodder with his original take on the middle east and growing up as a Christian Arab.

Amy Bugg

Amy Bugg is a stand-up comic with a penchant for inactivity, mild-mannered jokes about pizza, and dogs who look like people. You’re likely to find her featured on comedy stages across the country or at the back of a rural Alberta bar practicing her very questionable karaoke skills.
You’ll remember Amy Bugg’s deadpan delivery from festivals in Calgary, Vancouver and Boston, or from CBC’s “Grown-ups Read Things They Wrote as Kids”. Your mom might have also read her short story in Canadian Living.  

Nour Hadidi

Nour Hadidi is standup comic and writer. She has appeared at Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, and CBC’s The Debaters. Last year she filmed a half hour comedy special for Comedy Central in the Middle East. Nour has written for CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and Comedy Network’s The Beaverton.

Don Thompson & Reg Schwager with Penderecki String Quartet

Piano & Guitar plus Strings

                       

Don Thompson and Reg Schwager are mainstays of the Canadian jazz scene. Both accomplished band leaders and soloists, they are also consummate sidemen. Don’s bass, vibes, and piano are jazz folklore, and Reg’s “tasteful elaborations of the changes seem to end all too soon”. Halifax Chronicle
Although both have written and arranged for jazz orchestras, in this world premiere, Don writes for piano, guitar, and string ensemble. Special guests, the Penderecki String Quartet are one of Canada’s most accomplished and adventurous ensembles. This concert is a musical marriage made in heaven.

The psychological destruction brought on by solitary confinement is at the heart of this wrenching and powerful new play by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman. When 19-year-old Sid is transferred to a new prison, she finds friendship with Britt – but also forms a complicated relationship with the guard who seems to be watching their every move. Soon it’s the guard who’s being watched, and this playful, theatrical, mysterious work heads towards its shocking conclusion.

THIS SHOW IS APPROPRIATE FOR AGES 13 AND OLDER (SOME STRONG LANGUAGE AND MATURE THEMES, INCLUDES NUDITY)
