FREDERICTON PLAYHOUSE ANNOUNCES FULL LINEUP FOR 2021-22 SPOTLIGHT SERIES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FREDERICTON PLAYHOUSE ANNOUNCES FULL LINEUP FOR 2021-22 SPOTLIGHT SERIES

9 September 2021, Fredericton, NB – After missing a full season due to public health measures brought on by the global pandemic, the Fredericton Playhouse’s Spotlight Series returns with a full lineup for its 2021-22 season. The organization’s flagship program will feature 28 performances in theatre, circus, comedy, dance, and music from across Canada and around the world.

 

“We are thrilled to be back to providing a full Spotlight Series this year,” exclaims Tim Yerxa, Executive Director. “And we couldn’t be more excited to welcome audiences back for what promises to be an exceptional season of live performance.”

The season features several shows rescheduled from the 2019-20 season including fan-favourite Classic Albums Live, award-winning Indigenous dance company Red Sky Performance, and Canadian comedian Mike Delamont with God is a Scottish Drag Queen 2: The Second Coming.

Rounding out the Spotlight Series this season is a diverse collection of Canadian and international touring artists. Dance-lovers can look forward to four offerings spanning contemporary dance, urban-inspired, and classical ballet; meanwhile fans of both local and international music have over a dozen concerts on offer.

After the last year and a half, Fredericton audiences can certainly use some comedy as well. The series features five knee-slapping comedy shows sure to tickle the funny bone, including the well-known CBC comedy showdown, The Debaters Live.

The Spotlight Series wouldn’t be complete without a selection of holiday performances, and music fans won’t be disappointed by New Brunswick darlings Tomato/Tomato, and Canadian powerhouse Chantal Kreviazuk.

After what seems like an eternity, staff and performers at the Playhouse are ready to welcome a full audience. “We’ve lined up a number of remarkable performances this year and can’t wait to see audiences back in person,” says Yerxa. “There’s something for everyone in this series, no matter your taste or budget.”

In addition to a full Spotlight Series, the Fredericton Playhouse has four scheduled performances as part of the Kidstage Series, as well as a number of shows offering “Pay What You Will” ticket pricing.

 

Details for all Spotlight and Kidstage Series shows are available now at theplayhouse.ca; tickets are available now to Spotlight Members, and to the public on October 1.

Full show details, and hi-res images are available upon request.

The UNB Art Centre opens its first exhibit since COVID with weaver Vita Plume

The UNB Art Centre opens its doors and welcomes back the community to in-person exhibits and programs with the first exhibition of 2021, Vita Plume: Patterns & Portraits which opens Friday, September 10 at 5:00 pm. This exhibit runs through October 24.

The West Gallery will present the penetrating series Fallen Soldiers, USA/Canada (2010). In the exhibition catalogue Commemorations produced by the New Brunswick Museum exhibition in 2019, curator Peter Larocque observes that this work “bear silent witness…to the devastating realities of war.”

Featured will be weavings from the Alice Lusk Webster Suite, based on a portrait of one of the New Brunswick Museum’s early champions, the Doris Ullman Project which portrays textile workers of the Appalachian region of Kentucky along with earlier work honouring the artist’s Latvian roots.   Plume’s portraits of faces and hands created using subtle shifts of light and colour tell the story of forgotten makers who devoted their lives to the art of weaving and textiles.

She has taught at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in Fredericton, NSCAD, Concordia University, Montreal and the University of North Carolina in Raleigh.

Location of the mural on the panel

Location Information: 

The Mgr. W.J. Conway Public Library, located on Irène Street in Edmundston, was built in 1966 and 1967 by renowned architect, artist and poet Roméo Savoie.

Roméo Savoie was born in 1928 in Moncton, New Brunswick. From 1959 to 1970, he worked as an architect in the province, including in Edmundston. He carried out and collaborated in the construction of some fifty buildings during his career. He is known as one of the builders of infrastructural development in Acadia with the creation of several art galleries, including Galerie Sans Nom and Galerie 12 in Moncton, as well as Galerie d’art Le Cavreau, formerly established in Edmundston.

Roméo Savoie has been the recipient of several awards, notably in 1999 with an honorary doctorate in visual arts from the Université de Moncton for a career devoted to contemporary painting. He is also the recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, New Brunswick and Quebec, as well as the Miller-Brittain Prize and the Strathbutler, to name a few. His works are part of the permanent collections of the Art Bank of the Canada and New Brunswick Council for the Arts, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Canadian Cultural Center at  Paris, as well as the collection of the Université de Moncton and the University of New Brunswick.

Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur

The heritage building, Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur, testifies to its association with the brutalism architectural style resulting from the modern movement from 1950 to 1970. The style takes its name from the raw concrete.

The construction which is mainly in exposed concrete is widespread in the world of architecture strongly influenced by the French architect Le Corbusier, in the 20th century.

Concrete, due to its liquid nature, can take on any texture or pattern when poured over forms. The creation of Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur Church in Edmundston was strongly influenced by this movement and is an example of the dramatic potential of brutalism.

Roméo Savoie’s trips to Europe in the 1960s, notably the visit to concrete architecture in Finland, inspired the slender and angular shape of Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur, with its free-standing bell tower which bears witness to the historical function of the building. The building was converted in 2000 into a library, which houses the fifth largest collection in New Brunswick, with more than 47,000 documents, over an area of ​​1,654 square meters.

About Isaac’s Way

Isaac’s Way opened in November 2005 on Carleton Street under the leadership of Tina and Jason LeJeune. They worked ambitiously to create a community minded restaurant. The original restaurant was destroyed in a tragic fire October 2012, but we love our new location at 649 Queen Street, in the old historic York County Court House c1855.

In December 2018, the LeJeunes decided to sell the business and pursue other interests. Operations were handed over to the four people that had helped make Isaac’s Way successful all these years. Tabatha Smith now leads the team along with three industry professionals (Chef Jesse, Chef Laurie, and Kristin) and their goal is to continue the story and tradition of Isaac’s Way as it has always been.

Conference 2021 – Call for presentations | CNAL

Call for Presentations!

The world has endured a collective traumatic experience throughout the past eighteen months.  According to a study conducted by the United Way Centraide, 76% of Canadians surveyed say the pandemic has had a negative effect on their mental health. The Government of Canada reports, “People are being challenged like never before due to isolation, physical health concerns, substance use concerns, financial and employment uncertainty, and the emotional dialogue around racial equality.”

 

As arts and learning practitioners, we regularly see the impact that the arts have in students and participants’ lives. The World Health Organization reports that “Results from over 3000 studies identified a major role for the arts in the prevention of ill health, promotion of health, and management and treatment of illness across the lifespan.”  In Canada, Hill Strategies concludes, “There is solid evidence of a connection between cultural participation and mental health.”

As we eagerly, yet tentatively, look towards pandemic recovery, we recognize the vital role that the arts must play in the health and wellbeing of Canada’s citizens, communities and society as a whole. We have also learned a great deal about the importance of technology and the intrinsic value it has to facilitate connectivity and broaden the range of arts and learning opportunities available to the public.

In October 2021, delegates committed to arts and culture, education, recreation, health, therapy, medicine, humanities, social justice and community will gather in groups across Canada and online for Creative Convergence, the biennial conference presented by the Canadian Network for Arts & Learning.  This creative exchange will feature an overarching theme of “recovery” and include streams of health & wellbeing, and community connectivity.

Themes:

The conference will explore the following themes:

  • the impact of the pandemic on arts and learning practice and programs – in schools, in communities, in professional arts organizations, in other sectors committed to and delivering arts and learning experiences
  • the opportunities, challenges and possible pitfalls for arts and learning in a digital age and what we’ve learned throughout the social distancing measures
  • the opportunities through which arts and learning can contribute to post-pandemic health and wellbeing – of individuals, communities and society
  • the strategies that can be employed to ensure the survival of artistic learning in all contexts and sectors

 

All presenters must register for the conference and pay the $25 fee for virtual attendance.  Registration will be available on the CNAL/RCAA website.

We’ve designed these workshops to help you level up your craft in short 75-minute sessions. We focus on a specific area of craft and publishing related to YA.

With years of experience both evaluating and editing query letters, literary agent Kaitlyn Johnson will break down the do’s and don’ts when crafting your pitch. Learn format, the vernacular that applies to your story, and the best hooks to nab an agent! You’ll also learn what happens in the query process after you hit submit! Have those questions ready, as we’ll be including a Q&A for your specific concerns.

About the Instructor:

After receiving a BA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College, Kaitlyn Johnson refused to leave the concept of nightly homework behind. A literary agent for Belcastro Literary Agency, she is also a freelance editor at her own company, Strictly Textual. Kaitlyn started her literary journey as a copyeditor for academic publisher codeMantra, a YA editor for Accent Press, a Conference Assistant for GrubStreet, Boston, and has been agenting since 2016. She has written various articles for Writer’s Digest and has had a flash fiction story published in the anthology A Box of Stars Beneath the Bed.


About YA: YA is an ever expanding category of literature that constantly pushes boundaries. While the intended audience of YA is teenagers, almost half of YA readers are adults and Voyage is happy to be at the intersection of both groups. We are not interested in publishing a specific genre of YA, but we are interested in quality work by writers from a variety of backgrounds, especially #ownvoices. We are excited about creating a space that supports both emerging and established voices.

Voyage features short-form fiction and nonfiction weekly and we’re typically looking for unpublished work, though we do consider reprints. All submissions should be 6,000 words or less.

Please send any inquiries to contact (at) thevoyagejournal.com.

By submitting to The Voyage Journal, submitters agree to receive correspondence about future work and submission opportunities from The Voyage Journal. You can unsubscribe at any time.
