“Fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and full of unexpected surprises” - BROADWAY WORLD
Actor and playwright Marcia Johnson was inspired to write this play after watching an early episode of “The Crown” on Netflix.
“The series was extremely well-made...I have seen every single episode. But, a particular episode, the one set in Kenya, still stands out as flawed to me. The Kenyan perspective was completely ignored.” Marcia Johnson
Politics and pop culture collide with unexpected twists as this fascinating play moves between 1952 Kenya—when an anti-monarchist cook challenges Princess Elizabeth in the moments before she becomes queen—and 2015 London—when a Kenyan-Canadian film student clashes with convention and custom while working on a TV series about the Royals.
The tension between people and politics—imperialism, representation, and the irresistible draw of the monarchy—infuses and ignites this exciting new play.
“Richly detailed with urgent ideas…Serving Elizabeth is a gem.” NOW MAGAZINE, TORONTO

What you see… isn’t always what you get.
Minature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls. Hijinks ensue as a mild-mannered bank teller releases these hideous loonies after gaining a new pet and violating two of three simple rules: No water (violated), no food after midnight (violated), and no bright light. Hilarious mayhem and destruction in a town straight out of Norman Rockwell. So, when your washing machine blows up or your TV goes on the fritz, before you call the repair man, turn on all the lights and look under all the beds. ‘Cause you never can tell, there just might be a gremlin in your house.

JULIA brings to life the legendary cookbook author and television superstar who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women. Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child’s 12 year struggle to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her rapid ascent to become the country’s most unlikely television star. It’s the empowering story of a woman who found her purpose – and her fame – at 50, and took America along on the whole delicious journey. Film shown on December 3rd (5:15 to 6:50 pm), 4th (7:45-9:20 pm), 6th (5:15 to 6:50 pm), and 8th (5:15 to 6:50 pm).

    

As we embark on another trip around the sun, we are all wishing for a better trip than the last one, but in those times of strain and stress, magical things did happen. We looked within and without, to brave new directions and new ideas. We approach things in a different manner, hoping for positive outcomes. Looking down the whirlwind eye of another year, there is the tangible feeling of starting fresh with a new beginning. Work will include a wide variety of 2D and 3D works, spanning narratives of place and time. @ Xchanges Gallery

Sign up for the penultimate session in our Incubators 2.0 series with Jason Karman’s bookend workshop covering the first and last stages of content creation: development and distribution.
You have a great story. How do you develop it? Relationship building remains the heart of excellent producing; one fosters trust and creates opportunity while advancing stories. In Canada, making a film ethically matters, and representation is a goal worth striving for. Social media has become the primary tool for finding information and connecting people. No longer does one need to have a great story, but the question now shifts to why are you the right person to tell this story? This workshop will help emerging writer-directors interested in being auteurs produce their stories and manage future relationships.
Topics to be covered include:
• Grant writing and project development
• Getting a crew together
• Festivals and other forms of distribution
SATURDAY DECEMBER 4th 2021

Jo Ludwig’s unique works of art are created in a two-stage process of fusing multiple layers of glass then slumping them in a glass kiln. The assembled layers are placed in a glass kiln and heated until they fuse into a single piece of glass. After many finishing steps they are complete.  The top layer of dichroic glass gives a brilliance to these small sculptures that dazzles all that behold them.

ASCENSION is an impressionistic portrait of China’s industrial supply chain that reveals the  country’s growing class divide through staggering observations of labor, consumerism and  wealth. The documentary portrays capitalism in China across the levels of its operation, from  the crudest mine to the most rarefied forms of leisure. Accordingly, the film is structured in three  parts, ascending through the levels of the capitalist structure: workers running factory  production, the middle class training for and selling to aspirational consumers, and the elites  reveling in a new level of hedonistic enjoyment. In traveling up the rungs of China’s social  ladder, we see how each level supports and makes possible the next while recognizing the  contemporary “Chinese Dream” remains an elusive fantasy for most.

The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be a whole lot different. SPENCER is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days.

    

Severe, pale-eyed, handsome, Phil Burbank is brutally beguiling. All of Phil’s romance, power and fragility is trapped in the past and in the land: He can castrate a bull calf with two swift slashes of his knife; he swims naked in the river, smearing his body with mud. He is a cowboy as raw as his hides.
The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress, and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, revelling in their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter – all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her.
As Phil swings between fury and cunning, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form – he hovers at the edges of her vision, whistling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil’s cowhand disciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot twisting further into menace?

Kimberly expresses herself through a wide variety of subject matter; landscapes, treescapes, figure pieces and florals. She loves the creaminess and long drying time of oil paint, allowing her the opportunity to blend. Looking at Kimberly's work, one can see that colour is a major source of inspiration. She greatly enjoys playing with different layers and textures on the surface of her canvases.

“News from another pandemic, the one that ‘changed everything’ before it fell out of the news cycle and collective memory, except for the newly infected, or those who, like myself, managed a new life after death. Based on a text by David Wojnarowicz.” - Mike Hoolboom   About XRAY(S) 
“Visually resplendent, and philosophically political, or is it politically philosophical? It features the flow, the intensity, and the rhythm of thought itself, or perhaps even: the rhythm of new thought, of a new idea, the momentum required to overcome the dust of the past, in order to invent something else “ - Quote by Mike Hoolboom

Come to Recyclistas to learn how to safely and effectively maintain, fix, and rebuild bicycles. Whether you are looking to better understand how your own bicycle works, get comfortable doing your own bike repairs, or to completely refurbish and build a bicycle, we are ready to help you get rolling!
If you want to go into more detail, we also offer a 15-hour Build Your Own Bike Course.
Course Details
The 3-hour bike repair class does not have a set curriculum, but are conducted on a bike-by-bike basis so you get to work on what is wrong with your bike. We teach everything from fixing a flat to building a wheel and stock all the new & used parts you might need for your bike repairs (cost of parts is not included in the course fee).
Unfortunately we are not able to teach suspension overhauls, hydraulic brake bleeding, or any e-bike repairs during the course.
