It may seem hard to believe after the winter we’ve had, but winter is drawing to a close, and while we may not miss the ice and snow storms, the many cold alerts, and the shovelling and salting, there’s one thing that will be missed—and shouldn’t be missed by patrons of local performance and art. Long Winter: Year Two, Volume Five will be the final instalment of the interdisciplinary arts extravaganza taking place at every level of the Great Hall building. In the basement, Vish Khanna’s final talk show guests include hip-hop legend Maestro Fresh Wes, Olympian legend Donovan Bailey, and MP Olivia Chow (who, as of press time, had not yet declared she was running for mayor). On the main stage, bands like FIVER, Pick a Piper, and the Cancer Bats will rock out. And throughout the building, more performances will take place, like choreography by Allison Cummings, a Ghetto Gladiators exhibition, and the finale of Henri Faberge’s Fountain of Mouth residency series. It’s all PWYC, and the building will fill up quickly, so get there early.
