Easily-available software, net-based social media tools, guts, and a healthy ignorance of "how it should be" have now made every musician a producer, every producer a label, every craftsman an international marketer...and every current international marketer scared as hell.
---------------------------------------- Think of that much-overused (and sometimes incorrect) line, "It's not personal. It's business." Well, the...
When Scotch Tape is used as a repair tool (or as a means of presentation or communication), what's really being said is that at best, "Things are beyond the state of repair," or at worst, "Hey, we just don't give a rat's ass any more."
If one is lucky, certain theatrical moments reach out and grab an audience with their magic. For many of us devoted to the magic of live theater, it is the quest for a special kind of moment that keeps us coming back for more.
There is a kind of irony in the fact that Las Vegas, Nevada -- located smack in the middle of the Mojave Desert -- hosted an event for One Drop, a non-profit whose mission is to "ensure that water is accessible to all, today and forever."
Earlier this week, I attended a luncheon inside the historic First Canadian Place. It was sponsored by the Ontario Provincial District Council and Car...
Greenberg has taken the merest suggestion that Fred is gay in the novella and made it a fitful subplot. This would be fine if Greenberg made something of it; perhaps Holly would help Fred accept being gay with her free-spirited nature?
Jessica Connell is perched on a trapeze in a single spotlight as a piece of classical music plays. s I watched her dance on and with the trapeze I couldn't help but think of how different Circa's Wunderkammer experience is from my adventure with Cirque du Soleil last week.
Friday, a community of Cirque du Soleil artists will take part in a unique event to pay tribute to water. When I imagined the organization ONE DROP, I was first inspired by water. Then I felt compelled to do something. It saddened me to learn that a person dies every 20 seconds due to a lack of access to water.
Funny, surprising and full of heart, the French-Canadian comedy Starbuck has nothing to do with coffee (that name, after all, came from a character in Moby-Dick) and everything to do with redefining notions of family.
With the aid of Cirque's history of artistic dazzle and Robert Lepage's aesthetically beautiful directing style, Totem is definitely circus chic.
The whole world loves the Irish. How could anyone not? No other country is as stereotypically drunk, fun and friendly. Maybe that's why we take St. Patrick's Day so seriously in Canada. But how do Canada's festivities hold up to the main event in the founding nation?
Recently, the Quebec Board of the French Language sent a letter to a renowned Italian eatery in Montreal informing the owners that they were in violation of the law by daring to use the words 'pasta,' 'polpete' and 'bottiglia' on the menu instead of their French equivalents.
As a native New Englander who lives in Los Angeles, I was excited to dine on a recent evening with a female friend. Every single item was outstandingly fresh, delicious and a menu I want to revisit again.
With so many international atrocities committed against women on a daily basis, I as a woman in the west sometimes feel that there is very little that we can do. But living in the lap of luxury doesn't remove the sadness one feels when they see the news reports. I feel overwhelmed by the state of women and believe we should act more. This International Women's Day let us educate ourselves and the society at large.
Dear Premier Marois, Speaking at the infamous Summit on Higher Education you held last month, McGill Principal Heather Munroe-Blum warned, "The quali...
