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

Program 1 showcases an eclectic mix of works including Dancing in the Third Act, and international award-winning dancer Sarah Murphy in acclaimed choreographer, teacher and dance historian Carol Anderson’s powerful classic, Allegro Mysterioso (1983). Also on the Program, Dawn Shepherd and Ryan Gray of Breaking Circus perform a stunning new straps duet.

 

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.

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.

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.

The angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy.

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.

Fellini’s 8 1/2: Classic Film Fest

Fellini's 8 1/2: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest concludes with the essential 1973 Fellini film 8 1/2 … one of the greatest films ever made

 
One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s marks the moment when the director’s always-personal approach to filmmaking fully embraced self-reflexivity, pioneering a stream-of-consciousness style that darts exuberantly among flashbacks, dream sequences, and carnivalesque reality, and turning one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life, as he struggles against creative block and helplessly juggles the women in his life—including Anouk Aimée, Sandra Milo, and Claudia Cardinale. An early working title for was The Beautiful Confusion, and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.
