XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

A HARD DAY’S NIGHT
Sep 28 @ 7:30 pm
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of release of The Beatles’ Abbey Road with the 1964 classic A Hard Day’s Night, the greatest jukebox movie ever made, Re-Mastered
6:30-7:00pm Photo Shoot at the Rainbow Crosswalk. Grab a group of four. Each group will be included in a draw for free movie passes!
Movie starts at 7:30pm

A Hard Day’s Night captures the biggest band in the world at the height of Beatlemania. Directed by Richard Lester and originally released in 1964, the film follows the Beatles over a 36-hour period that sees them traveling by train, hiding out from fans in a hotel room, losing Paul McCartney‘s grandfather multiple times and, finally, arriving just in the nick of time for their TV performance. It blends elements of documentary with concert film, in addition to plenty of just-for-fun scenes, like the band responding to fan mail, chasing down Paul’s grandfather at a casino and goofing off during rehearsals for their TV concert.

The undeniable heart of A Hard Day’s Night, though, is the music. Serving both as a soundtrack and a means of propelling the plot forward, almost all the hits from the titular album appear in the film. The title track plays as the band run from a horde of fans in the opening scene, while an impromptu performance of “I Should Have Known Better” provides a tender moment on the band’s train ride.

Over time, the film has revealed itself to be rather like the enigmatic opening chord to “A Hard Day’s Night” itself — it’s tough to pin it down exactly, but the second you hear it, you’re flooded with nostalgia, intrigue and pure joy.

 

Tickets: $11 Adult, $10 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

All prices include HST.

Doors open 45 minutes before showtime. General admission seating, tickets at the door.

ELAPULTIEK – a play by shalan joudry
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

Elapultiek (ehl-ah-bool-dee-egg) – “we are looking towards” – is a 2-person play written by Bear River (L’sitkuk) playwright shalan joudry. It marks the first time Two Planks and a Passion Theatre has commissioned a Mi’kmaq playwright from Nova Scotia to create a new work for the company. The show was a huge success as an outdoor performance last Summer. Now, Elapultiek begins its journey as a touring indoor production.

In the course of the play, two biologists (one white, one Mi’kamq) are thrown together each night to count the swifts, and in the process challenge each others’ way of seeing. It’s a beautiful piece that is funny and moving, exploring reconciliation on a personal level.

King’s Theatre debuts the stage version of this play. Because the play was designed to be performed “in the round”, King’s Theatre will be seating patrons directly on the stage.


ABOUT THE PLAY

In the time of Idle No More, a young Mi’kmaw drum singer and a Euro-Nova Scotian biologist meet at dusk each day to count a population of endangered Chimney Swifts. As the relationship deepens over time, they struggle with their differing views of the world. Each ‘count night’ reveals a deeper complexity of connection to land, history, and ecology, and of reconciliation on a personal level.

Playwright and performer shalan joudry is an oral storyteller, hand-drum singer and poet from the traditional district of Kespukwitk (southwest Nova Scotia). Following years of raising children, performing, writing, and ecology work, Shalan now lives and works in her community of Bear River First Nation, sharing messages of reconnecting to both land and culture.

 

Halifax actor and dramaturge Matthew Lumley co-stars.

Directed by Ken Schwartz of Two Planks and a Passion Theatre.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
Oct 26 @ 9:00 pm

Let’s do the Time Warp Again

Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.

It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.

It’s not a movie, it’s an EXPERIENCE. First time experiencing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Click here for some tips!

COSTUMES: Yes!!!

PROPS: Prop bags will be available for sale. NO PROPS BROUGHT IN FROM OUTSIDE ARE PERMITTED. NEVER THROW THE ANYTHING AT THE SCREEN OR IN THE AISLES.
