MONET: THE MAGIC OF WATER & LIGHT – Reel Art 2019
Jan 21 @ 7:00 pm

A documentary on the massive work of Monet and the story that led him to revolutionize Modern Art.

Monet – the Magic of Water and Light tells the story of the origin of a massive work of art that broke with convention, of an artist resurrecting his life only thanks to painting.His human endeavor defied both space and conventions in his timeless masterpieces.In a war-torn country, the undisputed genius of French Art disrupted the art world and changes it forever. As the end of the First World War drew near it became clear to Monet that his work of art could not but be his final legacy to France: a symbol of peace, hope, and resistance, in a battered and bloody world.This is the tale of an obsession with light and water the painter could not escape from and how he transformed it into a kind of magic. A tale of the radical elements that revolutionized Modern Art: Monet’s clear intent was to transfer onto canvas the “first, pure impression” of forms and objects as they appear to the eye that has never seen them before. And this documentary will show the Water Lilies by Claude Monet, as they have never been seen before. A unique, exclusive look at the masterpieces housed at the Orangerie Museum, the Marmottan Museum, the Orsay Museum and Giverny, for the first time ever on the big screen for an unrepeatable experience.Inspired by the international bestseller Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies (2016) written byRoss King, also featured in the film.

DEGAS: PASSION FOR PERFECTION – Reel Art 2019
Feb 4 @ 7:00 pm
From The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from a superb exhibition at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain, to the streets of Paris. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells the fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters. Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eye sight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind. “Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see.” Edgar Degas

It was described by NME as the “funniest film of the year,” “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian,” by the Montreal Times. Watch the trailer here.

James is one of the Canada’s biggest cheerleaders. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for Canadian charities. He has also become one of Canada’s top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.

TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN
Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Theatre is thrilled to present the internationally acclaimed vaudevillian performer TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK. Magician, mime, illusionist, theatrical stuntman, Tomáš Kubínek makes his audiences laugh out of sheer wonder and delight.  He follows a noble tradition of physical comedy.

 

A collision of theatre and music-hall, his exuberant one-man show is equal parts comic brilliance, virtuosic vaudeville and irresistible charm. He’s known as a COMIC GENIUS, VIRTUOSO VAUDEVILLIAN, and all-round charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience they’ll remember for a lifetime.

After a sold-out run on Broadway, The New York Times lauded his work as “Absolutely expert!

His latest creation, TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN, is a rip-roaring revival of strong-man stunts, couples-counseling, snake-healings, and mass-hypnosis that leaves audiences dazed, beaming and in love with life once again.

*The performance, intended for an adult audience, is an utterly original mix of comedy, circus, and vaudeville, this is unlike anything you have ever seen at King’s Theatre. TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK is a phenomenon not to be missed.*

“Masterfully played comedy…That secret mixture of DARING, TALENT, AND UTTER FOOLISHNESS…” – Santa Fe Reporter

“HILARIOUS and enormously talented.” -TimeOut, London

 “The audience sits transfixed, gleefully awaiting each new moment of MAD BRILLIANCE.”
— Badische Zeitung, Germany

 

Tomáš Kubínek was born in Prague and at the age of 3 was smuggled out of the country by his parents to escape the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. After two months in a refugee camp in Austria, the Kubínek family was granted asylum in Canada and it was there, in St. Catharines, Ontario, that Tomáš, age 5, witnessed his first circus. He became passionately interested in clowns, circus, theater and magic and his perplexed yet well-adjusted parents took him to see every show that passed through town. At age 9 he presented his first performance before a circle of elderly magicians. By age 13 he had an agent. He performed in coffee-houses between folk-music acts and while still in his teens, he made his circus debut with a Brazilian clown duo as the rear half of a two-person horse. His tireless experiments in the art of live performance led to the creation of his award-winning solo stage shows which play to capacity crowds at theaters, international arts festivals, and in television broadcasts throughout the world.

LEONARDO: The Works
Jan 6 @ 7:00 pm

Leonardo da Vinci as you’ve never seen him before

Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen. Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.

This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.

Directed by Phil Grabsky

Running time: 102 minutes

Tickets: $12 Adult, $6 Youth.

$30 for all three in Reel Art 2020 series at King’s Theatre, deadline January 7, 2020.
