FODAR: Program Two

FODAR: PROGRAM TWO – LIVE ON STAGE AT KING’S THEATRE

Program Two presents a standout collection of works from new age to contemporary classic which includes a FODAR all-time favourite Dancing in the Third Act.  The collection also marks the World premiere of Lydia Zimmer’s haunting and mystical solo piece. Zimmer builds on a movement language explored in her recent choreographed work “Extremophiles” produced during the Staging the Screen Creation Intensive, hosted by Mocean Dance.  Philip McDermott also performs in a FODAR remount of David Earle’s iconic work Yesterday.

 

Dancing in the Third Act

FODAR brings back the production that started it all. The Company of Angels returns in Dancing in the Third Act (2013). The work runs on all four nights in both Program 1 and 2. Choreographed by Randy Glynn, this powerful and thoroughly engaging work was a hit with critics and audiences alike and toured to other Canadian dance festivals.  Working with dancers ranging in age from 65 to 80+, Glynn has created a visually dynamic full-length work that is a poignant, dramatic and whimsical look at the ups and downs (literally) of aging.

Home to the only major summer contemporary dance festival in Atlantic Canada, Festival of Dance Annapolis Royal (FODAR) is ranked as one of the major dance festivals in the country. Back for its seventh season, FODAR is live on stage showcasing classics of the past and current directions in live contemporary dance performed by some of this country’s finest artists. FODAR 2021 runs from August 16 through 21.  COVID-19 protocols in place.

  • $24 Adult
  • $12 Youth
  • $1.50 ticketing fee & HST additional
  • Doors open 45 minutes before showtime.

August 23-27

9:30am-11:30am at King’s Theatre

Over five two-hour sessions, students will explore basic character design concepts, such as how to draw characters from different points of view.  They will explore how to create a simple walk cycle animation on paper and learn about character facial expression change.  Students will learn how to use the fundamental principles of animation – the squash and stretch, in a facial expression to get a cool cartoony expression change of a character’s face. And more…!

MRS MINIVAR: Classic Film Fest
Aug 25 @ 7:30 pm
MRS MINIVAR: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with MRS. MINIVAR, set in 1942 WWII Britain.

 

 

“Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Seventy-five years before that became a political battle cry for women rising up against harassment, cruelty, and abuse while asserting their own place at the leadership table in a time of uncertainty, a leading six Academy Awards went to a movie that celebrated a woman doing the same.

Mrs. Miniver is from another age, crafted with another set of standards and expectations, released just as the world was going through the upheaval of another world war and long predating the women’s rights movement that would come decades after. Still, the melodrama about an ordinary woman standing up to do her part against a looming threat serves the same inspiring role in 2018 as it did when it won Best Picture in 1943.

It offers hope. A sense that fighting back comes with a cost, but surrendering has an even steeper price. William Churchill famously claimed Mrs. Miniver was fortification for the Allied spirit, and today it’s still a reminder that even though we often make our stand as individuals, we are not alone.

Greer Garson won Best Actress for playing the title character, a middle-class British mother whose eldest son is training to be a fighter pilot while two much younger siblings remain at home. Her husband, played by Walter Pidgeon (nominated for Best Actor), ventures off in his boat to join the civilian rescue effort of troops surrounded at Dunkirk.

Although she never leaves the home front, the battle comes to her: Mrs. Miniver finds a wounded German pilot in the countryside and has a terrifying encounter with him as he lays out the threat of thousands of men like him tearing apart her country, bomb by bomb. For all his fury and boasts, he’s no match for this valiant housewife.

DUO CONCERTANTE

DUO CONCERTANTE

SOLACE featuring Duo Concertante

Nancy Dahn violin & Timothy Steeves piano

Musique Royale

 

 

For over twenty years, violinist Nancy Dahn and pianist Timothy Steeves have built an international career as the acclaimed Canadian chamber ensemble Duo Concertante.

Duo Concertante have produced 12 albums, recorded on the Centrediscs, ATMA and Marquis Classics labels, creating a formidable oeuvre of new works and definitive classics. Beethoven: Complete Sonatas for Violin and Pianoreceived critical praise in German, Austrian, British and Canadian media, and was described by Gramophone as “a miracle of…knowledge and poetry.”  In 2017, J.S. Bach Six Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard was named ECMA’s Classical Recording of the Year, the first of three consecutive ECMA wins in that category, followed by Incarnation (2018) and Perfect Light (2019). The just-released Franz Schubert Music for Violin and Piano (May 2020) has already gained attention from the CBC for being “heart-rending…thrilling”, and with “uncanny unity of purpose.”

In partnership with Musique Royale, we present their beautiful new program SOLACE.

It addresses our collective relationship with each other, exploring themes of reconciliation, peace, understanding, loving and communion, in counterpoint to the worldwide stress and sadness caused by the current pandemic. They have commissioned Grammy Award-nominated Dawn Avery to write a new work entitled Iotsistokwaron:ion (“The Stars” in Mohawk). Another contemporary work in the program is Jessie Montgomery’s PEACE (2020), a profoundly universal expression of the “Great Sadness of the first quarantine” when she “struggled to define what actually brings joy, making peace with sadness – a necessary dynamic to the human experience.” Finally is the canonic sonata by César Franck Sonata, a musical journey chronicling an intimate partnership in stages – from the initial infatuation, through intense passion, crisis and conflict, to a final place of acceptance and deep connection.

THE THIRD MAN: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with THE THIRD MAN, the 1949 thriller starring Orson Wells

 
Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime—and thus begins this legendary tale of love, deception, and murder. Thanks to brilliant performances by Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, and Orson Welles; Anton Karas’s evocative zither score; Graham Greene’s razor-sharp dialogue; and Robert Krasker’s dramatic use of light and shadow, The Third Man, directed by the inimitable Carol Reed, only grows in stature as the years pass.

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, the icon 1955 film starring James Dean

 
After moving to a new town, troublemaking teen Jim Stark (James Dean) is supposed to have a clean slate, although being the new kid in town brings its own problems. While searching for some stability, Stark forms a bond with a disturbed classmate, Plato (Sal Mineo), and falls for local girl Judy (Natalie Wood). However, Judy is the girlfriend of neighborhood tough, Buzz (Corey Allen). When Buzz violently confronts Jim and challenges him to a drag race, the new kid’s real troubles begin.

CLEO FROM 5 TO 7: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with Anges Varda’s 1962 CLEO from 5 to 7 (presented with English subtitles)

 
Agnès Varda eloquently captures Paris in the sixties with this real-time portrait of a singer (Corinne Marchand) set adrift in the city as she awaits test results of a biopsy. A chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameos by Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.

UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with 1964 film THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG starring Catherine Deneuve (presented with English subtitles)

 
The angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella-shop owner’s delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through lilting songs by the great composer Michel Legrand, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.
