December 08, 2021 December 15, 2021Jo 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.

December 08, 2021 01:15 AM 02:55 AMASCENSION 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.

Christmas brings a return of Blue Bridge’s version of the perennial favourite A Christmas Carol starring Sanjay Talwar running from December 7-19. Performed in the manner that Charles Dickens presented his own work in 1853, live-streamed Blue Bridge audiences were delighted as they watched Mr. Talwar effortlessly walk his way through the dozens of characters contained in this classic with merely a shift in his voice.
