Jabber by Marcus Youssef, Geordie Productions

Let’s say three actors play out a story that takes place in a high school. Let’s say one of them plays an outgoing Egyptian-born girl who wears a Hijab. Let’s say her parents made her change schools recently because of some graffiti that said, “All Muslims must die,” and that the guidance counsellor at her new school, Mr. E, is doing his best to help her fit in. Let’s say that a big part of his advice to her is to stay away from Jorah, a grade 10 guy who has challenges of his own (namely a temper that he inherited from his dad who’s in jail for beating up his mom.) But let’s say that maybe, just maybe, Fatima and Jorah start to, like, like each other…

Les billes (marbles), Tara Luz Danse

"Les billes" (marbles) is a poetic work for four dancers inspired by dreams and filled with curiosity and light. This image-rich piece is inspired by a game choreographer Anik Bouvrette plays where she says: “When I close my eyes, in my imagination, I see…”. "Les billes" is her answer to this question. When the lighting dims, the audience is transported to an imaginary world filled with movement, marbles, bubble gum and hula hoops lit from within. "Les billes" is intended for an audience of all ages (children, youth and the general public). The work premiered in March 2012 in Ottawa (Shenkman Arts Centre) and excerpts have been presented in Vancouver (New Works) as well as on two tours in Ontario within francophone networks of presenters programming.

Tara Luz Danse is available to tour between February and April 2017.

Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom, Whiskey Jack

Jen Cook, one of the stars of our show, will share a short history of the show, how it began and talk a bit about some of the performances in Canadian communities. There's a reason Tom's audience is so very loyal and passionate. The audiences we've enjoyed these past two years have had an appetite for not just their favourite Stompin' Tom songs, but also for the stories the band members have been part of since 1990. Our pitch will help you understand why this is that way. Tom's fans are like no others...they feel that they knew Tom personally and our presentation will offer a taste of how this came to be and why it continues to this day. Part of our power point presentation will include video footage from our show and actual audio clips of Tom relating to his audience recorded at concerts we've performed with Tom across Canada. There's also video footage from our 1993 Canada Day Show with Tom on Parliament Hill.

Jen will share some stories surrounding the making of the Stompin' Tom persona and the importance this has been to the National psyche. Expect to learn about Tom the man, the loyal Canadian who proudly boasted about his country and gave Canadians permission to enthusiastically wave the flag. The importance of this man is played out in the stories surrounding his encounters with the Canadian music establishment and others. Our presentation will offer some understanding of why Canadians continue to revere him.
