Right now, Soulpepper Theatre is presenting a pair of captivating performances, Kenneth Welsh’s interpretation of The Gospel According to Mark and Ins Choi’s Subway Stations of the Cross, as two separate items in its 2015 Studio Series. The shows might be even more effective, however, if they were staged as a complementary, Easter-themed double bill: a powerful reading of a sacred text, followed by a funny, surreal, contemporary riff on its imagery and themes. It would certainly benefit Choi’s piece, which is only 45 minutes long, by putting it inside a larger framework and providing it with context for non-Christian audience members.

Vandalist: Evolution

From regular cat to SUPER CAT

FIELD NOTES: One of our favourite things about graffiti is how it evolves over time. It almost feels organic, the way a piece can transform from one day to the next. Just over a month ago we featured an adorable kitty cat/solution to unsightly tagging. Since then that wall has been altered again by taggers and, again, improved by the residents. In all likelihood the ever-changing wall will be tagged again. We can’t wait to see how it continues to evolve into the most epic wall cat the city has ever seen!
