A few months ago, Brian and Rupal (Nightswimming’s Artistic Director and Producer) assigned me a task: come up with some sort of document that could be used by anyone interested in finding out more about Blue Box. At the time, we weren’t quite sure what the content would be, nor what form it would take.

With only six days until the festival (you have your tickets, right?), and undercurrents going into its third year in 2013, the question I am inevitably getting is “what’s different this year? How has the festival changed since it began?” Lucky for you, I have answers...

Seven shows
While we added an extra performance for each show last year, we’ve gone one better in 2013 and added an entire extra show, Bread, being staged in the Irving Greenberg Theatre lobby.

The 2013 undercurrents festival is (less than) two weeks away.

What does that mean to you? You’re (less than) two weeks away from my favourite theatre event of the year. I am, however, completely biased.

"Was there a time, in real life, before I was born, or you were born, when animals could talk?"
"I don't like kissing or anything, but when I grow up, I'm going to marry Cindy. She's my friend."
"Is that a real rabbit?"

Well another exciting opening has come and gone and the run of our 4th show of the season is well on its way! Blue Box opened on Jan17th with a bang!
Our partners Mambo and Kinki Restaurant showed their support for Chile and GCTC with an amazing array of food. Everything from traditional South American cuisine to Kinki's famous sushi! The words Impressive and delicious are my words to describe two of my new favorite restaurants. Check out their website and see for yourself .... www.mambonuevolatino.com.

Today's the sixth opening night we've had with Carmen Aguirre's Blue Box, which doesn't make it any less fun or special, but certainly takes away most of the typical opening night anxiety, that's for sure. Carmen and I have been presenting this piece in front of audiences for several years now, beginning with a reading in a Toronto restaurant long before the script was actually completed.

A great doctor once exclaimed from the psychedelic pages of a picture book,

 

OH!

THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!

You'll be on your way up!

You'll be seeing great sights!

You'll join the high fliers

who soar to high heights.

Happy 2013 from the Great Canadian Theatre Company! Today everyone returned from their well-deserved holidays with stories about relaxing, stressing, travelling, being with family, getting sick and all sorts of other tales. The time off was great, but everyone is thrilled to be back in the theatre getting back to what we love to do.
