Luminato 2013: Impressive But Scattered Compositions

Offering no further justification up top other than the mere fact that “magician” and “musician” sound similar, Rafael Benatar combined the two disciplines with skill, if not grace, in Compositions. Nearly as adept with a baroque guitar or lute as with a deck of cards, Benatar effectively performed two disparate shows: one a fun, crowd-pleasing […]

Historicist: Little Saratoga

On the afternoon of Tuesday, November 8, 1955, a crowd of over 6,500 went to Dufferin Park for the track’s final day of racing.

Hillary Clinton Speaks at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre

When summarizing the life of Hillary Clinton, where do you start? She was the first female senator of the state of New York, she’s coming off a four-year run as U.S. secretary of state, and aside from all that she was a first lady for eight years. It’s no surprise, then, that Thursday night at […]

“It’s going to have to come down to program cuts. It’s the province’s fault.” —Toronto mayor Rob Ford, in response to a letter from provincial finance minister Charles Sousa announcing that Queen’s Park would be cutting nearly $150 million in funding to Toronto. In that letter, Sousa told Ford that since the province was uploading […]

Vandalist: Spirograph

BY: Unknown LOCATION: Unknown PHOTOS BY: Bella Manu FIELD NOTES: Remember Spirograph? What kid didn’t have that collection of plastic gears and wheels? More importantly, what kid did have them and actually put them to good use? Speaking from our personal experience, our feeble and short-lived attempts to create amazing circular patterns resulted mostly in […]

Luminato 2013: Ronnie Burkett’s The Daisy Theatre

Ronnie Burkett has solidified his reputation as Canada’s premiere solo puppeteer with complex full-length plays, like the Memory Dress Trilogy, or last year’s “apocalyptic comedy” Penny Plain. So it’s a rare treat to see him cut loose and perform The Daisy Theatre. It’s a free-wheeling show that’s different each night, with audience participation, special guests, […]

What Did People Try to Get Pulled From Toronto Library Shelves Last Year?

Every year, Toronto Public Library releases a report with a list of items that Torontonians tried to have removed from library shelves over the previous year. (The library term is “request for reconsideration of library materials,” which is a very diplomatic way of putting it.) You may be heartened to know that, by and large, […]

Collage Art

Most of us end our cut and paste careers in elementary school, but a select few are able to turn it into a true art form. They use bits and pieces of different images to create a new whole, a different meaning or story. And it’s Collage Art that will be featured in the Steam […]
