Illustration has always been one of my favourite genres of art! It is the primary basis and the starting point for most if not all artwork in any different mediums. An illustration depicts something seen, remembered or imagined through a drawing, sketch, painting, photograph, or other graphical representation. The word illustrate comes from the Latin illustro, “to enlighten.” There are many ways to illustrate a story.

Leave it to A Company of Fools to bring out the crowds for an opening night. I’m pretty sure the entire Ottawa theatre community was in the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre last night. And why not?

Their last show that they did here (A Midwinter’s Dream Tale from 2011-12) was so well liked, that when Eric Coates began working here, there was a vocal contingent among the staff that campaigned for their return during the Christmas season.

When I first began the task of curating a website inspired by the themes found in Anita Majumdar’s The Fish Eyes Trilogy with Brian Quirt (Artistic Director of Nightswimming Theatre; Director/Dramaturg of the Trilogy), and Rupal Shah, (Producer), it was after several months of working with Nightswimming and numerous discussions about the three plays.
