YOUTH ANIMATION WORKSHOP Ages 10-17

ANIMATION WORKSHOP FOR AGES 10-17 WITH GARTH LAIDLAW

August 23-27

9:30am-11:30am at King’s Theatre

 
ANIMATION WORKSHOP:
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…!

Course is limited to 10 students. Bursaries are available; please give us a call at 902-532-7704.

 
GARTH LAIDLAW is a multi-disciplinary artist located in Granville Ferry, Nova Scotia, Canada. He illustrates children’s books, board games, comics, and also animates videos for a variety of clients. While Garth enjoys employing a variety of artistic stylization in his illustration and animation work, his work has been described as “imaginative, whimsical, and fantastical”. To kickstart his publishing career, he self-published his first children’s picture book in 2016.

Student film by John Hill
 
John Stephen Hill is an AWEC student and an aspiring young filmmaker from Annapolis Royal who has created an 18-minute documentary. This is his first film, and he will be present for an audience Q&A.
“When I read about the centenary of King’s Theatre I thought ‘why not do a documentary about this?’ As an aspiring cineaste, I wanted to do something people would actually be interested I’m seeing about something which is arguably esoteric, celebration of a theatre. The disadvantages I had to overcome were threefold, firstly I was only sixteen, secondly I had no experience whatsoever of making movies, (at that time I did not even own a phone that could record video), and thirdly I had nobody around to, as it were, show me the ropes. Because of this, it took me a long time to complete my documentary, only eighteen minutes on the screen but very many hours in the making.” — John Stephen Hill

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

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with MRS. MINIVER, 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.

THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNER

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.

PIG – Nicolas Cage
Sep 3 @ 7:30 pm

Like the animal itself, Pig defies the hogwash of expectations with a beautiful odyssey of loss and love anchored by Nicolas Cage’s affectingly raw performance.– Rotten Tomatoes

 
Living alone deep within a Pacific Northwest forest, Rob (Nicolas Cage) hunts for truffles, then sells them. But after his only companion, a beloved sow, is carried off in the middle of the night, wrath takes root — along with a more personal reckoning with some long-buried trauma.
 
Quiet, unforced and delicate, Pig provides a forum for Nicolas Cage, one of our most dazzling showmen, to get serious and burrow more deeply into his talent than he has in years. — Empire
